As in the first Chapter, after the T-virus outbreak in Raccoon City, only Alice and Matt Addison survived in the end. Now after one month of T-virus infection of the Facility “Hive”, Umbrella Organization recklessly directs a team of Researchers. When Alice and Matt Addison was escaped alive after the outbreak, the Researcher’s wanted to examine the incident. They also wanted to put Alice on some experiment and Matt was set for a secretive program “NEMESIS”. When the team opens the sealed doors, they overwhelmed by the huge troops of infected people.
They spread the contamination amongst the wide ranging population, when they reach Raccoon City. After two days of viral contamination, umbrella concerned nearly unlikely global infection, isolates Raccoon City and forms a safety outer limits. Umbrella also clearing all staffs out of the Raccoon City.

At the same time Alice wake up in the Hospital of Raccoon City. She found herself with some sort of wiring. She steps outside from the room and when she goes outside from the hospital, she finds a city, completely destructive. She found a Shotgun in a police car and walk around the city. She is continually upset for her visions showing a man, who was exposed to conduct her test. Now she feels a super human alertness and power in her.

Although umbrella is emptying citizens at the bridge of Raven’s Gate which is the only exit. Jill Valentine  who is a Police officer advises her friend Payton Wells to be alert about the infection. Meantime, a man having a heart attack due to T-virus and turns to Zombie. Payton has bitten at that moment by the zombie.

On this situation, Timothy Cain anxious about the T-virus, orders that seals the exit gates and to fire on the crowd. To secure against an assault of zombies,Carlos Olivera  and other armed forces and S.T.A.R.S (Rescue Squad) link up with Special Strategies.

Now Umbrella activates the NEMESIS program for killing of S.T.A.R.S members.Nemesis kills all members of S.T.A.R.S and frees the life of Civilian L.J. Subsequently Angela is lost, Dr. Ashford has declined taking out. He searches location from the satellite and find out her location in school hall. Eventually he hacks the CCTV system of the city to contact Alice and wants to make a deal. The deal is to rescue Angela in exchange of their evacuation from the city. As there is no way of escaping, Alice accepts the offer.

On this offer, the remaining survivors, Payton, Terri and Jill says that they have to cover themselves till the backup reaches, but Alice tells that the infection cannot be lay in control and this place is going to be destroyed by dropping Nuclear bomb on Raccoon City and the media will cover the story as Collapse of Nuclear Power Plant. Later, Payton weakens due to T-virus and killed by NEMESIS. Meanwhile Alice attacks him but he is invulnerable to combat.

Alice traps NEMESIS by trapping to a native store, but she is stunned and enforced into withdrawal. While Jill and Terri trying to find Ashford, and they make it to school. When they reach school, they find Nicholai  and Carlos also searching for the girl Angela. Meantime infected dogs and infected children attacked, as a result Nicholai and Terri killed. Alice again saves all of them and they find Angela. Angela tells that she is infected with T-virus. She was involved in chromosomal sickness and enforced to walk with sticks. His father Dr. Ashford invented T-virus to let her walk without sticks, and he also invented the antivirus because of the T-virus would be for transformations, but the infection was confiscated by Umbrella Organization. Angela has the antivirus that helps Alice to inject Carlos. Alice records all the story by using Terri’s camera.

After that Alice calls Dr. Ashford, he says that a helicopter is waiting on the site of extraction at City Hall. All survivors goes for the extraction point but surrounded by Major Cain and he holds Dr. Ashford as prisoner, where Major Cain orders Alice to fight with NEMESIS. Alice reveals that NEMESIS is Matt Addison, her friend and the only survivor with her in the “HIVE” because he was infected, that is why she refuses to fight, but Major Cain says if she refuses to fight then he will kill all the survivors and kills Dr. Ashford. Now she surrenders and ready to fight with NEMESIS. In the fight she spearing NEMESIS on a pole. Then Cain orders to kill NEMESIS, but she refuses which reawakens a touch of kindness in Matt (NEMESIS), Alice and Matt attack the forces of Umbrella jointly. In the meantime, Carlos and Jill cut their handcuffs and fights. NEMESIS is killed to save Alice by exploding helicopter. Alice throws Cain from the helicopter to face the intruding zombies together with Dr. Ashford. The survivors escapes in the helicopter and in the meantime, the nuclear missiles explodes.

After some hours of blast, the employees of Umbrella, pinpoint the crash site in the Arklay Mountains. Where they find only Alice’s body. Later media shows the video of Terri, despite of Jill and Carlos hard work. Umbrella comfortably supports a bogus story of Nuclear Power Plant explosion in the city. The contamination is considered as a joke, that Jill and Carlos now wanted for the questions by the police according to media.

Umbrella, then take the body of Alice in research facility in Detroit commanded by Dr. Sam Isaacs. After three weeks Alice awakes and the team of doctors asks about the past by questioning her. Momentarily, she remembers all events from the Raccoon City. She realizes that the doctor appears in her visions was Dr. Isaacs, eventually she attacks Dr. Isaacs and the others and find the way out of the facility. At outside, Umbrella guards surrounded her but Precipitously, Carlos, Jill and L.J camouflaged as Umbrella employees and says we will take care of her from now on by showing written order. Alice comes in the vehicle but at the final check post, the guards received a call from Dr. Isaacs, he says “let them go” and says “Program Alice activated”. Meantime when he says that, Alice eyes flashes with logo of Umbrella but she ignores.
