Storyline

On her way home in a plane to New York, the teenage Sarah gets very ill. She realizes too late that it's more than a cold and with her parents still on vacation, she breaks down in the middle of the street and dies shortly after in a hospital -- by the plague, as the terrified coroners find out. While trying to keep this from the public to avoid a panic, epidemic commissioner Dr. Nora Hart has to investigate Sarah's identity and find everyone who had contact with her. If she misses a single person, the plague could kill half the city in a few days! Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Excellent TV Movie
12 October 2002 | by (Santa Clarita, CA) – See all my reviews

This is a fantastic television movie! I saw this actually in school. It was shown by our science teacher when we were talking about diseases. As i remember it, it was well acted, and well written. If you liked Outbreak then you should like this. The basic plot is a group of scientists trying to stop the spreading of the plague.
