An international traveler reaches into the snack bowl at an airport bar before passing her credit card to a waiter. A business meeting begins with a round of handshakes. A man coughs on a crowded bus. One contact. One instant. And a lethal virus is transmitted.
When Beth Emhoff (Gwyneth Paltrow) returns home from business in Hong Kong, what she thought was jet lag takes a virulent turn. Two days later, she’s dead in the ER and the doctors tell her shocked and grieving husband (Matt Damon) they have no idea why.
Soon, others exhibit the same mysterious symptoms: cough and fever, seizures, brain hemorrhage, and death. A global pandemic explodes as the contagion sweeps across all borders, fueled by the countless human interactions that make up the course of an average day.
As the death toll escalates and people struggle to protect themselves and their loved ones, one activist blogger (Jude Law) claims that the public is not getting the truth about what is really going on and sets off an epidemic of paranoia and fear as infectious as the virus itself.
