Nathan Carlson, creator of a drug that allows one to experience love without the dangers of involving other people, finds himself caught in the middle of an outbreak when Los Angeles is infected with Sudden Death Syndrome – a disease that causes death suddenly and whose only symptoms are spontaneously bursting into song and dance. Nathan quickly joins the cure research team where he meets Rachel and Jonathan, and they rush to find a cure for the disease. In between uncontrollable bouts of song, Nathan unravels a conspiracy involving a high ranking military official, falls in love and attempts to save Los Angeles from sudden death… as the city turns into a real life musical all around him.
