There is a deadly virus spreading around the world. At first it is a distant alarm bell in the background of Hannah's comfortable suburban life. Then suddenly, it has arrived on the doorstep. The virus traps Hannah, her husband, and their young sons in their city, then their neighborhood, and finally their own home. As a formerly idyllic backyard and quiet street become battlefields, fear and compassion collide. But what happens when their water supply is cut, and then the power, and the food supply dwindles?

A page turning thriller about a middle class Australian family trapped in an epidemic quarantine. There's lot of suspense as they struggle to hang on to their civilization while their city collapses around them. It has a happy ending, yet it would be more moving if Hannah's family truly had to sacrifice something, instead of coming through with flying colors.

I suspect it would take about 15 minutes for polite society to be exactly like Mad Max if their was a pandemic, revolution or coup (fingers crossed). I am unbelievably chagrined I finished this piece. We get it, mom is an extra strength neurotic and dad is a dumb dumb super douche not unlike Donald J. Just another in a lifetime of genuinely poor decisions. I hope in heaven I get to Tivo my life just to see my face right before I make some my worst choices. Like in '88 when I was suicidal for months on end, on my way to Pink Floyd and thought to myself, "You know what I need, is this postage stamp sized blotter paper with a pelican on a surfboard." Life has never been the same since.
