The story is set in year 2468 in a desolate Southern California town where industrial pollution, unmanaged radioactive waste and pesticides have reduced nature to small patches of toxic land. The organisms that reside in these toxic patches survived years of manipulation of their natural environment by rapidly evolving into toxic beings themselves. It’s up to Cooper Winkman, the protagonist of the story, to maintain the quarantine on Terminal Island, a hot spot for these creatures. If the toxic creatures spread past the quarantine zone, they could infect the human gene pool and permanently damage the human species.
