The inability of freelance journalist Peta Carson to commit to long-term relationship with her lover, TV current affairs researcher Tracy Pickford, results in the couple taking a break from one another. Tracy accepts an assignment to pose undercover at The Jenner Institute, a fertility clinic situated in the Lake District, to investigate rumours of some of the female patients being sexually assaulted. When she gets there, she makes contact with Dr Alison Wells who expressed her concerns that something bad is going on. However, before Tracy can report back to the BBC, the Jenner Institute is set ablaze, and Miss Pickford & the staff and patients, including Professor Jenner, are killed by an unknown assailant. At first, a devastated Peta thinks that the rapist is the murderer, as do Cumbria CID, but she is shocked to see the man Dr Wells suspected amongst the dead. When a Government official named Hennessey and the British army take over the enquiry, she suspects that Alison's allegations were a stepping stone to an even bigger story. She then discovers that Wells' body isn't amongst the victims. Realising she wasn't there on the night the massacre occurred, Peta tracks her down and she reveals the truth - the real killer is Chad - the result of an attempt to create a genetic cross between a man and an ape - and it is free to kill any adult member of the species that brought it into being….
