The year is 2027 and the youngest person in the world, 18-year-old "Baby" Diego, has just been stabbed to death. Worldwide infertility of unknown causes has led to social unrest, violence, chaos, and the collapse of society. The United Kingdom , which still has a government, is deluged by asylum seekers. In response, it has become a militarised police state as British forces round up and detain immigrants. Kidnapped by an immigrant rights group known as "The Fishes," former activist turned cynical bureaucrat Theo Faron ( Clive Owen ) is surprised to see its leader is his estranged wife Julian Taylor ( Julianne Moore ). The couple parted ways after their son died from a flu pandemic in 2008. Julian offers Theo money to acquire transit papers for a young female refugee named Kee ( Clare-Hope Ashitey ), which Theo obtains from his cousin Nigel ( Danny Huston ), a government minister . However, the papers require the bearer to be accompanied, so Theo agrees to escort Kee in exchange for more money. Luke ( Chiwetel Ejiofor ), a Fishes member, drives Theo, Kee, Julian, and Miriam ( Pam Ferris ), a midwife , towards the coast to a boat. They are ambushed by an armed gang and Julian is fatally shot. Two police officers stop their car, but Luke kills them, and the group escapes to a safe house.

Kee reveals to Theo that she is pregnant, and that Julian told her that she should trust only him. Julian had intended to hand Kee over to the "Human Project", a group of scientists dedicated to curing infertility, supposedly based in the Azores . However, Luke proposes keeping Kee in England, and she agrees to stay. Later that night, Theo awakens and eavesdrops on a meeting of Luke and other members. He discovers that Julian's death was orchestrated by the Fishes so they could use Kee's baby as a tool to support the coming revolution. Theo wakes Kee and Miriam and they steal a car, escaping to the secluded hideaway of aging hippie Jasper Palmer ( Michael Caine ), a former political cartoonist and Theo's friend. A plan is formulated to board the Human Project shipTomorrowwhich will arrive offshore from the Bexhill refugee camp. Jasper proposes getting Syd ( Peter Mullan ), a camp guard, to smuggle them in. The Fishes trail the group to Jasper's hideout, but Theo, Miriam, and Kee get away. Jasper stays behind to try to buy them some time. Before the Fishes arrive, he gives the government-issued suicide drug Quietus to his catatonic wife. Jasper is gunned down by the Fishes in cold blood, horrifying Theo, who witnesses his murder before escaping with Miriam and Kee.

Later, they meet Syd, who transports them to Bexhill as fake prisoners. When Kee begins having contractions on a bus, Miriam distracts a suspicious guard with religious mania, and is taken away. Theo and Kee are taken to the camp, where conditions are appalling, chaotic, and violent. They meet Marichka (Oana Pellea), who provides a room where Kee gives birth to a girl. The next day, Syd locates Theo and Kee, having connected them with the police murders, and threatens to turn them in for a reward. He also informs them that a full-scale war between the refugees, including the Fishes, and the army has begun. The group beat off Syd and escape. Amidst the violent clash between refugees and British troops, the Fishes capture Kee. Theo tracks Kee and her baby to an apartment building which is under heavy fire from the military. The combatants stop fighting momentarily, awed by the presence of a baby, enabling Theo, Kee, and the baby to escape.

Marichka leads them to a boat in a sewer, but refuses to join them. As Theo rows away, he reveals to Kee that he was shot. They then witness a full-scale aerial bombing of Bexhill by the Royal Air Force , and Kee tells Theo she will name her baby Dylan after Theo's dead son. Theo loses consciousness just as the boatTomorrowapproaches through a thick fog.
