When a plane lands in New York City with everyone on board dead, Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, head of the CDC's Canary Project, and his team are called upon to investigate. Harlem pawnbroker Abraham Setrakian races to the airport, convinced that what looks at first like a mysterious viral outbreak might be the beginning of something infinitely more sinister.
Did You Know?
The reporter shown at the airport is named Ofelia Baquero. Guillermo del Toro - being one of the directors and writers - gave a nod to Pan's Labyrinth by giving the reporter that name. The lead character in Pan's Labyrinth is named Ofelia who is portrayed by the actress Ivana Baquero. See more
At the end when Setrakian is narrating and explaining that love is a force we still don't understand, that is partly true, we still don't fully understand the mechanisms of love, and emotions in general, however we do know that there is a chemical component to them, including love. So it's not true that love can't be explained, at least partly, by a chemical process. When a person is experiencing the emotion of love high levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine and the hormone oxytocin are produced in the brain. See more
Love, you see, is the one force that cannot be explained, that cannot be broken down to a chemical process. It is the beacon that guides us back home when no one is there, and the light that illuminates our loss. Its absence robs us all pleasure of our capacity for joy. It makes our nights darker and days gloomier. But when we find love no matter how wrong, how sad, or how terrible we cling to it, it gives us our strength, it holds us upright. It feeds on us and we feed on it. Love is our grace...
