Storyline

The National Guard has build a fence in the perimeter of Madison's house and the neighborhood has become one out of twelve infection-free safe zones in Los Angeles. They have strict rules and a curfew in effect to protect the dwellers. Chris sits on the roof of the house with a camera and is intrigued with a light blinking in a house outside the perimeter and he shows his footage to Travis first and to Madison later. Madison sneaks through the fence to see the other side and finds many infected and non-infected copses. Meanwhile Liza is assisting Dr. Bethany Exner that works with the National Guard and she transfers their neighbor to a hospital. Then she examines Griselda's leg and the addicted Nick and soon they are taken by soldiers to a hospital against Madison's will. Liza is invited to join Dr. Exner and she also goes to the medical facility. What will happen to Griselda and Nick? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

[first lines]
Chris Manawa: [Chris video records himself on the rooftop, telling the latest news on the infected outbreak] Another one burned last night. Better than TV. People outside the fence, they took the last of them four days ago. People just like us run like cattle, piled into trucks, one suitcase apiece. Headed east. At least that's the rumor. Bakersfield, Vegas, who knows? It's safe inside the fence. Outside, everything's dead, everyone's gone. This is, uh, day nine.
Chris Manawa: [...]

The Human Being Is Complicated, Arrogant and Selfish

The National Guard has build a fence in the perimeter of Madison's house and the neighborhood has become one out of twelve infection-free safe zones in Los Angeles. They have strict rules and a curfew in effect to protect the dwellers. Chris sits on the roof of the house with a camera and is intrigued with a light blinking in a house outside the perimeter and he shows his footage to Travis first and to Madison later. Madison sneaks through the fence to see the other side and finds many infected and non-infected copses. Meanwhile Liza is assisting Dr. Bethany Exner that works with the National Guard and she transfers their neighbor to a hospital. Then she examines Griselda's leg and the addicted Nick and soon they are taken by soldiers to a hospital against Madison's will. Liza is invited to join Dr. Exner and she also goes to the medical facility. What will happen to Griselda and Nick?

"Not Fade Away" shows how the human being is complicated, arrogant and selfish. Madison is an educated woman that has the privilege of being a survivor living in a non-infected safe zone. However, she cuts a hole through the fence to see the other side and return with a great possibility of bringing virus and put the whole community in danger. Amazing and stupid! The most impressive scene in this show is Nick injecting the morphine of his neighbor. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Not Fade Away"
