fluSmuggled illegal immigrants from Hong Kong are the vector of a deadly airborne disease that ravages the city of Bundang, South Korea. The resulting lockdown of the city and the forcible quarantine of its residents provide the basis for this intense and personal melodrama. As uninfected people learn the truth about the camp, riots break out, the military is mobilized, and the situation threatens to further spiral out of control. A well-made and entertaining film, Flu explores suggests how quickly things could go wrong in a modern-day pandemic, and how ill-equipped we are to respond (Klaus Ming May 2015).
