Fog descended on the town of Bridgeville. However, it is rather not a fog but a mist – impenetrable, white and deadly. Nobody knows where this fog came from and what it is. However, when people trapped in the mist and begin to die, the townspeople are forced to flee. Trying to find a safe haven, the residents of Bridgeville are hiding in homes, shops and even churches. However, not everyone realizes that the true death mist has long penetrated the city and lives inside people.
Although the mist awakens all the worst in the townspeople who are ready to do anything for the sake of survival, there are also those who are ready to provide a help.
