Black comedy. Bartholomew is a baker in 17th century London. When flea infested rats spread the plague, thousands die and are placed into the great pits. But a new strain is evolving inside the corpses, reawakening the minds and bodies of aggressive and diseased ridden, puss filled Mutants with no humanity. The only way to rid them and stop the rest of the world ever hearing of, or seeing, these unsightly monsters, is to burn them all, leading to the mystery surrounding the great fire of London.
