A 14-year-old girl named Lindsay Estacio has been recovering from a depressed state over her parents' divorce, when suddenly, she develops a strange rash, fever, swollen glands, sore throat, headache, and puffy, sore eyes. Lindsay's rash becomes so bad that it develops into blisters that spread all over her body and mucus membranes and hinder her breathing. It turns out that Lindsay is severely allergic to certain medication, including the antidepressant she took, called Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Young father Ryan Gleason has been mostly healthy, except for a sinus infection. He gets a headache, becomes fatigued, develops numbness in his hands and feet, loses his balance, gets double vision, and develops speech impediments.
