Storyline

When cattle mysteriously start dying of anthrax in a small Alberta ranching community, an RCMP officer tries to keep the peace as ranchers lay the blame on a local agricultural research center. A reporter encourages the angry ranchers - led by the Mountie's mother-in-law - to stage a sit-in at the research center. When an eccentric old rancher dies after being exposed to a deadly strain of anthrax, the protesters are quarantined. No one notices that the reporter has disappeared - along with several vials of the deadly bacteria. The RCMP officer begins his own investigation, gleaning information from a U.S. government agent. He finds himself racing against time to recover the stolen anthrax. Written by Anonymous

ANTHRAX 2001
4 February 2003 | by (Somerset, England) – See all my reviews

I think the film was quite well done. It couldn't have been done at a better time. With the way things are in the world today, we could all learn some valuable lessons from this film. If we just take notice and stop and think before we jump to conclusions, things could be a lot better.
