Synopsis

One touch is all it takes to cause a global pandemic in this smart yet ultra-scary thriller tracing the effects of a lethal virus. From peanuts and door handles to lift buttons and handshakes, death lurks everywhere, as A-list actors cough and splutter their way through a realistic nightmare that will make you think twice about the sniffles… An international traveller is the first to die, leaving behind not only a grief stricken husband but also countless other victims that she’s unwittingly infected during simple, everyday interactions. With the numbers multiplying rapidly from London to Tokyo, experts race to control the disease and create a potential vaccine. However, public panic and paranoia are spreading equally fast, bringing social breakdown that adds to the devastation.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
