Twisted Fate

In a post-COVID world, a new pandemic caused by a prion is revealed to have been incubating unsuspected for twenty years. Attacking the brain cortex, the prion turns victims psychopathic. Now, the Gestapo-like US Health Services hunts "Psychs" testing positive, for incarceration on work farms. A young symptomless Psych flees with his girlfriend to a sanctuary in the Mojave --- that is not what it appears to be.
