The White Plague: The White Plague describes the story of a molecular biology scientist John Roe O’Neill who is on vacation in the beautiful country of Ireland when an explosive kills both his wife and children. He goes ahead to weave genes into viruses and contaminants bacteria with the viruses thus creating a disease that only targets women and speeds up their aging.

He releases the virus to England, Libya, and Ireland and soon the virus begins spreading rapidly around the globe. As women soon start to die, the United Nation gathers scientists from around the world to find a cure. Unfortunately, when O’Neill tries to sneak into Ireland, he is captured and tried for genocide. When the scientists finally find a cure for the aging disease, they spread the knowledge without letting the government gain the upper hand.
