CAN ONE GIRL SAVE HUMANITY?
About the show
THE PASSAGE focuses on Project NOAH, a secret medical facility where scientists are experimenting with a dangerous virus that could lead to the cure for all disease, but also carries the potential to wipe out the human race. When Amy Bellafonte is chosen to be a test subject, Federal Agent Brad Wolgast is the man who is tasked with bringing her to Project NOAH. Ultimately, however, Wolgast becomes her surrogate father, trying to protect her at any cost.
Brad and Amy’s journey will force them to confront Project NOAH’s lead scientists, Major Nichole Sykes and Dr. Jonas Lear, as well as the hardened former Navy Operative Clark Richards, whom Brad trained. But as Project NOAH’s scientists hone in on a cure that could save humanity, these new beings begin to test their own powers, inching one step closer to an escape that could lead to an unimaginable apocalypse.
