Horror apocaliptic al unui cineast multipremiat pentru scurtmetrajele sale. O mutaţie a virusului turbării provoacă o pandemie în faţa căreia, în doar trei luni, întreaga omenire se declară înfrântă. Puţinii supravieţuitori se regăsesc departe de zonele suprapopulate, fără electricitate, comunicaţii sau protecţie din partea autorităţilor. Se apropie iarna şi pericolul cel mai mare vine din partea propriilor semeni şi nu a persoanelor infectate, ce nu mai acţionează raţional.
EN: A mutation of the rabies virus, B249 has been transmitted to humans. The infection initially broke out in the North of Sumatra and only needed 20 days to get the entire continent exposed. Now, three months after the first case, we have given up the fight. Infected people attack every single living creature they find on their way; only a bite is enough to get infected and the effects appear after a few seconds. There’s no electricity, no communications, no army, no government. A group of five survivors flee to the countryside, far away from populated areas. Winter is coming.
