The White Plague - 10 years have passed since a fiercely contagious virus spread among a major city's population, causing a mysterious white blindness and eventually, society's collapse. Now five survivors come forward to tell a story they were not allowed to share before. A story of unprepared quarantine facilities and dehumanizing circumstances that drive citizens to expose the very brightest and darkest aspects of their human nature. A story of government negligence, isolation and persevering humanity.
