The military has dispatched a peculiar man with a red case to a small town in the middle of nowhere. After a long, tense ride through the night, the man puts what appears to be a bomb in the center of the sleepy town. The device goes undiscovered until the following morning, only minutes before it activates. The poor young men who find it are helpless until it starts emitting a peculiar gas. Mason and Clark hide in a nearby shop, but both soon realize that they've already been exposed. Within minutes the two young men are reverting to a more primal state, but Mason has the added benefit of becoming something else entirely.
