She comes across an LA jail surrounded be these half-dead with a couple of survivors trapped inside. She lands on top of the roof and partners up with me to fight the guys that are coming after them. we’re trying to get all of the survivors out of the jail to safety.”

Miller plays one of the trapped people whom they lock up in a cell as they aren’t sure if he’s succumbed to the virus or not. He becomes a key element of their eventual escape. Larter reprises her role of Claire Redfield from the previous film “Resident Evil: Extinction”.
