* EveryCarIsAPinto: To a ridiculous degree, other than the Bentley. There's a Transit van that explodes after hitting a downed motorbike and a ''caravan'' that's engulfed in a ball of flame after being hit by a gimp-wielding tricycle. Inexplicably, when the Bentley tears through the bus, the broken halves of the bus burst into flames for no apparent reason as well.

In the present day, after an outbreak of [[ThePlague deadly killer face-rot]] in Glasgow, Scotland as a whole is walled off and the general population left to... well... rot. The rest of the world thinks this is [[MoralEventHorizon going a little too far]], and respond by turning their backs on Britain as whole. On the last helicopter out of Scotland is a little girl who's just taken a bullet to the face, given to the custody of soldiers by her desperate mother...

Fast forward to [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 27 years later]], and that little girl has grown up to be [[ActionGirl Major Eden Sinclair]], [[EyepatchOfPower eyepatch-wearing]] badass cop. Which is fortunate, because the Reaper Virus has arrived in London, and the evil government is ready to send a team of soldiers north of the border in the hope of finding a cure. Eden has 46 hours to get to Glasgow, find the man who was working on a cure before the wall went up, and save the day.
