This film contains graphic violent scenes and strong language.
This is what you need to look for.
We now know that a virus activates it.
The virus plays some unknown role in the birth of the Brothers.
Of course, the mutation occurs very rarely these days.
And only in males.
Strange, isn't it?
That God would choose such a humble vehicle for a miracle.
You don't need to worry.
The Brotherhood will take him.
Raise him in the Church.
It's a blessing, really.
He'll want for nothing.
Not like the rest of us.
this is your brother.
Because you share the same mother, you will help guide him as he grows.
We will call him Edgar.
Welcome to the world, little brother.
It all led up to this one defining moment, 300 years ago.
With these simple instruments,
the alchemist, Giuseppe de Angelo, discovered what we today call
He deciphered that
the Brothers were in fact a new race of being,
sent by God
to serve and protect you human beings.
He truly was a great, great man.
But there were others,
bad men, who took what de Angelo had discovered and experimented
without concern for the end results.
The science of genetics and all its power
has been banned ever since.
Who can tell me what came
from these bad experiments?
All the bad things,
like plagues and influenza.
All the bad things.
I think perhaps this is beyond us.
We should inform the authorities, the human beings, about Edgar.
For now, the Brothers feel that we should deal with this ourselves.
Have you thought about what would happen if they found out we were covering up these deaths?
Which is why you must find him, Silas. Listen to me.
For centuries, we Brothers have served mankind,
and them, us.
The great union.
But you need to remember your history.
300 years ago, when our kind were first born into this world,
they burnt our children as monsters.
They had no notion of evolution.
In another world, we might all have been slaughtered,
only to be remembered in myth.
Monsters to frighten the young.
A puzzle for anthropologists.
You must refuse to let one aberrant individual destroy the balance between the two races.
Nothing has changed.
The old prejudices are still there.
Human beings are paranoid creatures by nature.
Perhaps they have good reason.
Silas, simply concern yourself with finding Edgar.
Find your brother, so we can help him.
Before he kills again.
On three, gents. One, two...
Police! Down! Down, down, down!
Don't you dare!
What do you mean, influenza vaccines?
-I give them out, I make sure everyone gets one.
-That's a lie.
We know you've been trading influenza vaccine in the workhouses.
I think you should see this. I'd wear a mask, if I were you.
You fucking liar!
-I gave them their booster!
I gave the rest back to my landlord, I swear to God! Agh!
This is a Civil Health violation.
-You're going to the Hell House for this.
-I don't even know what you're on about.
-I have done nothing, I swear to God! I have done nothing.
Honestly! The only bullshit, mate, is whoever you've been talking to. I have done nothing...
Where are the fucking vaccines?
-It's my pleasure to inform you that you are under arrest for trafficking influenza vaccine.
-I want my lawyer.
This is a violation of the 1210 Health Act, whereby you've withheld
-borough-sponsored vaccine from your tenants.
-I want a lawyer.
Anything you say will be used as evidence against you.
By endangering the public good, you're not entitled to a lawyer. There's one other thing...
-We'll get out here.
-Jones, is she alright?
Lilly's kid... Died of the influenza,
-She never said anything about her kid?
No, she never says anything.
FOOTSTEP ON STAIRS
I need work. Can you help me?
Anybody got any work?
Where are you going in such a hurry, my little ruffian? Eh?
What's going on here?
-What did you do to her?
-I didn't do nothing!
It was a Brother! It was a Brother did it!
Get a picture.
Ma'am, ma'am, the Tribune.
-Do you have any comment on the dead?
-They're saying it was a Brother.
-Come on, madam, be quiet.
Arrest me? Who do you think you are? Get your hands off me.
Find me witnesses and shut them up.
Can I step in?
Yes, if you like.
Have you seen it?
It's a bite.
There's a kid who saw it down there. Says it was a Brother.
We've got another witness, that's all who saw it.
All right, Jens, let's close this down. None of you to say a word.
Not even to your own mother. A Brother accused of murder.
Can you imagine if this got out?
I'm getting tired of this. You're going to talk if you...
-You saw what happened?
-Now he won't talk.
-Did you see anything?
What's your name, then?
-You live around here?
I grew up three streets from here.
Or should I say I crawled out of here.
No one else will do anything about this, you know.
They just think this place is a slum.
No one really cares what happens to the people round here.
Except for maybe you and me.
Now what did you see?
-What kind of man?
-Are you sure it was a brother?
Where did he go?
All right. You're to go with these men.
They'll look after you, I promise.
Get him to describe it all and keep him away from everyone.
-Come on son, let's go.
-And get him some food.
-I've quarantined the neighbourhood. As far as anyone knows we have a new influenza outbreak.
You've done well, Lilly. But the report is another problem.
By law we have two days before we have to release her, then it's out.
I want you to handle these murders, Lilly.
You know Jamestown better than anyone.
The Brotherhood have requested to be part of the investigation.
Now, this is political.
Lill. He's here.
Do you know who he is?
That's Brother Silas. They say one day he'll lead the Brotherhood.
He's a great man.
-I think I hear choir music.
-Do you have respect for anything?
My old mum goes to the church three times a week and gives her blood.
She's happy as a lark.
Just don't expect me to kiss him.
Senior Brother Edgar.
How long have you known about this?
A matter of weeks.
Is something wrong?
Withholding evidence, covering up two murders, and no one's worried.
But if I or one of the people in Jamestown did that, we'd be in the hell house with the key thrown away.
It seems the church is able to do whatever it wants.
You're right not to like it.
It is political.
We thought we could catch Brother Edgar ourselves.
We were wrong.
But now any debate is pointless.
All right, then.
What do you suggest?
First there's something you should hear.
Gentlemen, there's no other way of putting this. We have just two days to find the suspect.
-Not a hope in hell.
We don't even know where to begin.
Now what you are about to hear will not leave this room.
This is Brother Silas.
Thank you, Captain.
Could we have the plate, please?
Senior Brother Edgar.
Until three weeks ago he was a trusted and talented theologian and scientist.
-What did he do?
-He was personally responsible for developing the most recent influenza anti virals.
It is because of him that most of you are alive today.
His behaviour appeared normal. Next.
Victims, John Anders.
Tanya Garfield, Julie Danes.
All in their early twenties, but beyond that, no obvious connection.
There is no precedent for Brother Edgar's behaviour.
No Brother has ever taken a human life.
Not in the 300 years since we began.
Our role has been to preserve and maintain the human life.
-Not take it.
-Next he'll want a fucking medal.
What I'm saying to you is that Brother Edgar's behaviour is abhorrent.
We don't understand it and therefore it's difficult to predict. The only thing we do know
-is where he will strike next.
-And how do you know that?
-Please don't pick him.
I said, shut up!
Good. Now you're quiet.
Did you hear that, Silas?
Do you like the game we are playing?
It is like a game from our childhood.
Hide and seek.
There is a group of buildings around a sad playground.
It's called Bridge Square.
I will take the next one from there.
Please, try harder this time.
Please try harder, my Brother.
-He said this to you specifically?
-We share the same mother.
There is a bond.
OK. There'll be two teams.
Frank, I want you and Abernethy round the buildings in Bridge Square.
I'll leave the other two with Dominic Jones. Queen's Guard in support. He's to be taken alive.
Wait in position.
-This is a dud.
-Not a thing.
-Check each floor again.
You heard. One more for the Empire.
-He's on the 6th floor.
Move. Come on. Come on.
Lock it down.
You're so strong.
-Ahh, shit. Lilly's hurt!
-Lilly's hurt. She's hurt!
She's dying. She's dying.
-He's in the ventilation shaft.
Stay away from her.
Stay away or I'll stick you.
Do you want me to save her? Do you want me to save her?
Stop fighting, Lilly.
-He's getting away!
He's going up.
-Get out of my way.
Antibiotics. They say it's like an animal bite.
I want to thank you.
-We all caught Edgar.
-I don't mean that.
They say it saved my life.
Is it true that people who go to church are given your blood?
Sometimes the rituals call for it.
Some say they have visions from it.
That it restores their health.
It has healed already.
In some ways, my body is like a human embryo.
Cells regenerate quickly.
It's why we live so long.
-Will someone come for you? Your family?
-I don't have anyone.
Not any more.
My husband was quick.
My daughter, Mary, her little body fought for a long time.
I just waited.
Hoped. In the end, you realise how cruel hope is.
And you just want it to stop.
Not for her sake but for my own.
I am so sorry.
Do we seem pathetic to you?
My child. Worn down by nature.
But you fight back.
Yes. We're good at that.
I think yours will be a good life to watch, Lilly.
Nicely done. You're more human than I thought.
Fucking cover up.
Silas. You know Professor Liepsky.
-How is he?
-See for yourself.
Is the brace necessary?
He decapitated a guard when they brought him in here, even though he was sedated.
He says he will drink us all dry.
No, go on.
Brother Silas will soon be part of the inner circle of the Brotherhood.
You should know this.
He has become infected.
Let me show you.
If he wasn't restrained, he would try to kill you.
-Don't worry. It's only transmissible through their blood. We designed it that way.
Edgar was experimenting with a virus that created new Brothers.
It was sanctioned by the Brotherhood.
Since when did they sanction such things?
Since not one Brother's been born in 70 years.
And never a female of your kind from which we could breed.
And we need to breed more Brothers.
You bring hope to the world. Something for the people to believe in.
This is what Edgar was doing, Silas.
Trying to genetically control the birth of Brothers.
And Edgar was successful.
Each of these women carried a Brother for a time.
But the virus changed.
Most of them are dead now.
These will die too soon.
Edgar may be the first Brother to ever die.
But, before that, his brain will wither like these women.
Containment will be the issue.
The police officer, Lilly.
Did he infect her with this?
No, she was very lucky.
But it's in Edgar's blood and always will be.
Hello, my brother.
Do you like they've done for me, Silas?
We will help you if we can.
I am only being what I was meant be.
How can you help me from that?
Or is it that you want to tame me?
Animal or vegetable, are those my options, Silas?
Brother, I want to share the feeling with you.
To feel their blood flow,
until every last drop is yours.
Until that weak pointless little pump
The one I had, the policewoman.
She was so strong.
I found it hard to leave her.
Is she dead?
I will have her again.
No, Edgar. You won't touch her.
You have chosen to watch over her.
You want her, don't you?
I can see it in your eyes.
You're just like me.
I will pray for your cure, brother.
Pray for my cure?
I will get out of here, and I will make you join me, brother.
I will make you see.
I will see you drink your policewoman right through.
Get off him!
I hate it when he does that.
Stop it or we'll use the gas.
If you don't stop doing this we'll turn the gas on now.
Do you hear me?
-So what's this, then?
-My apartment was condemned, keep your hair on.
-What's left of it.
You have been an opponent of those wanting an easing on the ban on genetic research?
-Isn't he amazing?
ON TV: They were saying you were denying legitimate research into a science that would change the world.
The church does not deny the potential,
only the motivations of those who want to exploit it
and the fact that we understand so little of its power.
With the elimination of influenza, are we approaching a new era
where disease might be a thing of the past?
Disease is part of nature. It will always be a part of our lives.
Brother Silas's confirmation ceremony will be held today in the Sacred Chapel of St Augustine.
I dimmed the lights to try and calm him.
We gassed him as usual.
We waited ten minutes.
He must have held his breath.
Go back down. Go back.
Breathing's all right.
Go back now.
The blood flows through them to us and we preserve them,
preserve the blood we are bound to protect.
Today my brother enters the history books, professor.
Tonight all the Brothers will be with him.
Let the blood be one and the two races join
as a perfect creature.
What a wonderful time for me to celebrate.
Open your mouth. Open.
Open your mouth. Take them. Take them!
You won't be taking any more calls today.
Now he carries this thing out into the world.
Can you imagine what will happen if he infects others?
If these experiments were to become known?
He said he'll kill us all
but especially the police officer. Lilly.
Get your papers.
Would you like me to cut your tongue out?
Do you want me to cut you?
Get the fuck down on the ground.
You've been ripping me off. Yes, you have! Me and everybody else.
-I didn't touch...
-Yes, you have. I might cut your nose off.
I think I might cut your tongue out.
-Maybe I'll just cut your whole face off.
-Put the knife down.
-OK, officer, I'm compliant.
Put it down, now.
Down. Right now, down on the ground.
-Oh, I'm getting wet now!
Put your hands behind your back.
-You brought me the wrong one.
-It doesn't matter, one's as good as the next...
-Open her mouth.
Oi, you promised I could have some of that.
Do you see Freddy... visions?
Can you see your future?
-Don't be a greedy pig, Freddy.
You have to earn it.
We have more to do.
A shopkeeper heard some yelling.
I went to see and found this.
One witness, a prostitute. She identified this fine citizen.
We think maybe he had a grudge or was crazy.
What do you mean, it's Edgar?
Oh, no... And he's got Steph.
That's not what he was after.
-It was me he was after, wasn't it?
-He'll come for you, Lilly.
-Right, we'll put you somewhere safe.
-We set up this place, shooters on the roof...
He'll see and hear it.
It has to be me. It has to be here, it's what he wants. It's the only chance Steph's got.
-Steph's already dead.
-No. It has to be here.
It can't be too easy, but he has to be able to get in.
He mustn't suspect a thing.
That is the way it will be.
I will be the bait.
Please, I'm sick, help me.
Don't fucking touch me!
Where's he gone now?
What are you doing?
-What is it?
MAN GROANS, GLASS SMASHES
Silus will take...
Give her to me.
Give her to me!
Come to me, Lilly.
Where are you?
You bitch, you wait...
You scared the shit out of me.
That policewoman, she's really sick.
Tell you the truth, I don't feel so hot myself.
I want you to take her and put her where she'll be found.
-But I'm sick!
She's given me something...
What did I say, Freddy?
I detest whining.
SHE BREATHES RAPIDLY
Everything flows from me.
My blood will change the world.
Stephanie Richards. You just brought her in.
I've never seen anything like this. It's spreading like wildfire.
-Will she recover?
Containment is the problem now.
And we've had more cases, ten in the last hour.
What is this?
Edgar shared his blood with them.
Are you telling me that he's out there spreading this around?
-He'll give it to Lilly.
-Jones, back off. This is spreading? Brother Silas?
That's it, Lilly's dead.
-No, he'll keep her alive.
So that I will come for him.
-That's what he wants.
-We found this on her.
"Everything flows from me.
My blood will change the world."
What does that mean?
This new plague now rages out of control in the Jamestown slums.
Sources close to the police report this plague as the result of genetic experimentation by the Brothers.
The government has decreed that everyone within the quarantine zone must stay within their homes.
Any residents caught trying to escape the quarantine zone will be shot.
The Queen is reported to have left the city. This is marshal law.
We've blocked off this section, containing the Jamestown slums.
It almost sounds like children playing.
Don't you think?
I looked at your body. You have borne a child.
Did you abandon it?
Your race are good at that.
Why don't you just kill me?
I can see why he likes you.
But I have a better use for you.
To save you, Silus will take my blood and join me.
The world is insane. I am better than you yet.
I am forced to serve you, forced to watch you waste the most precious thing you have, life.
Do you know the sum of our existence?
When we are born,
we are taken from our mothers,
forced into a life of
loneliness and denial.
A life born only to serve.
Can you imagine a life like that?
You don't have to do this.
You could change things.
I will make the world a very different place.
Do you like the world I'm creating for us, Silus?
I haven't had your policewoman yet, but I will...soon.
You'll just have to find me.
It's like a game, my brother.
Everything flows from me.
You should think about that.
The infection is spreading.
Each day he shares his blood with more of them,
even though they are locked in their own homes.
He is somewhere in the quarantine zone. I will find him.
So very clear, your eyes.
The way they were when you were born.
There will be no search.
-The Brotherhood has instructed the government
to evacuate the city round the quarantine zone.
Once this has been completed,
we will take action.
What kind of action?
Everything within the area will be burnt, including Edgar.
It is a necessary step.
And the innocents there who are not infected?
We cannot allow this to escape.
Is it the policewoman?
Is this affecting your thinking?
There is no love for our kind, Silus.
We have done this,
this thing into the world.
We have betrayed their trust in us more than once. I will not do it again!
There is no debate.
They will be sacrificed so the rest will be pure.
These are hard things that we do,
but you must think of the greater good
and of your own future.
What do you want?
I want to help you.
I know you talked to the press.
Yeah, well, they can fuck off.
For that matter, so can you.
You'd be the last person I'd trust.
-I saw you, remember, watching Lilly while she was asleep.
Maybe you're just like your brother.
Maybe you know where he is.
Now, there's a thought, huh?
Do you know where he is?
Oh, you've changed.
Not on the outside, but the inside.
I know you.
I'm trying to help you.
You know where I am. Everything flows from me.
-Do you have a map?
-There's the quarantine zone.
It's a pit. Slums.
The water supply, where is it?
All the old suburbs are supplied by their own artesian wells,
That's why it hasn't broken out of Jamestown.
It's in the water, Jamestown's water.
He's there with Lilly.
You'll never get in. They've circled the whole borough.
I will get in. You must go to the press, tell them about the water, tell them what the Brothers will do.
We're dead after this, you know that?
Watch for me, Officer Jones.
-Who has done this, Brother?
I have something to show you.
He's coming for you.
Silus, come here. Silus!
-Where is she? Where is she?!
-She's mine now.
-Where is she?!
If I burnt the skin from your face, how would that be?
If you were a monster?
-What is it?
-Is something wrong?
There's something very precious.
You must take it.
Keep it secret.
Don't let them touch it.
-I don't understand.
-You will. You will.
She's the first of her kind.
Whatever infected the people helped make her.
She's an accident, a miracle.
Come, before they find her.
We must go.
Do you see it?
Can you see this perfect creature?
And I have hidden her away from them...
far away from the Brotherhood and its lies.
I am hunted,
But I will fight them now.
