Synopsis

Where is She?

In a sleepy Spanish town, three young children are being taken care of by a local teenage babysitter while the children's parents dine at a nearby restaurant. However, in a seemingly unexplainable turn of events, the oldest child, 5 year old Jane, disappears. As the case unravels, the local Spanish police begin to work with their British counterparts to find Jane and restore peace to the once-tranquil Costa Del Cielo.

Quarantine

As a Caribbean cruise begins its final 24 hours before docking in Northampton, a stream of passengers fall sick with an unrecognisable disease. The on-board doctor believes he has it under control, until passengers start decomposing rapidly while still alive. Determined to contain the fast-spreading disease, the ship's security takes drastic action.
