After a successful treatment of cancer of the girl Jaime Roland (Talia- Lynn Prairie), the former hacker Stephen Roland (Billy Wirth) is convinced by Dr. Caine (David Jean Thomas) to let her be submitted to a MRI scanner by the specialist Dr. Colleen O'Brian (Maeve Quinlan) to check that she is totally cured. During the examination, Jaime has seizure and dies. Stephen has a meeting with the Director Dr. Jamison (Michael Ensign) and requests explanations about the death of his daughter. He claims malpractice or malfunction of the equipment and Dr. Jamison tells that only after the autopsy it would be possible to know the true cause. Further, he introduces the responsible for the experimental MRI equipment Al Bercovicci (Philip Boyd) that explains that the equipment is working perfectly. After the autopsy, Dr. Jamison accuses Dr. Caine of malpractice and tells that the girl had several tumors in her head. However Stephen does not buy the story and teams-up with Colleen. He uses his computer knowledge to investigate and finds a complex of power and economical interests involved to approve the scanner and buy it.

"The Drone Virus" is a thriller with a good story but poor screenplay. The plot begins with the testimony of relatives of patients' victim of cancer that have no association with the story. The screenplay is confused with plot points and despite the unexpected last one, it could be better and better. The gorgeous Maeve Quinlan is an attraction of this film. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Contaminação" ("Contamination")
