In a lab in New York City, the year 2042 .Everyone trusts scientists in the future.
Felicity Argent and Emily Smoak were working on the cure for cancer in their lab in New York City. The medicine methothymine was meant to cure cancer, but Emily saw an opportunity to sell it before it was finished. She tricked people into believing it was an antidepressant.
Emily took the opportunity and sold the unfinished product to a pharmacist. He then sold it to whomever he could.Everyone who bought it was oblivious to the risks.
The drugs began to affect people in the same way. People started showing symptoms. Deadly symptoms. People began to drop like flies.
Felicity is confused as to why people are dying, but she must focus on the problem at hand...finding a cure. Everyone in New York is threatened by the deadly drug, since it's highly contagious. Felicity discovered it was caused by mutated cancer cells that form due to the unfinished methothymine.
Felicity worked day and night and finally found a cure. She then goes on to figure out how it got out in the first place. She discovers it was Emily.
Everyone in New York City got vaccinated at vaccine stations. The drug was destroyed and all possibilities of the drug being remade were outruled; the components were unknown. Emily also got arrested. People also stopped blindly following medication and started questioning ingredients and side effects.
