The Steven Soderbergh-directed ‘Contagion’ movie has been in the number spot of the US box office. The movie is not a morality tale that ousts sentimental life lessons but it is merely a masterfully executed paranoia thriller that keeps the audience unmoved. The movie projects a haunting portrait of a society threatened by the perils of a lethal airborne disease that becomes a global pandemic.

In the movie, Beth Emhoff is a Minneapolis woman who travels from Hong Kong and succumbs to a violent cough while digging her fingers into an unsanitary bowl of peanuts in an airport terminal. Unfortunately, the mysterious virus contracts her by some unknown source and mutates at a rapid speed and also rejects attempts at a cure.

Her doctors and her husband Mitch try to explain her violent seizures, distorted equilibrium and foaming mouth, but unfortunately she passes away. The death of Beth inspires an urgent and professional and swift international investigation lead by the best in the field that includes Dr. Ellis Cheever of the Centre for Disease Control, Dr. Erin Mears, Dr. Leonora Orantes and Dr. Ally Hextall. The virus spreads exponentially and the experts initiate a quarantine protocol and produce a curing vaccine and save the world from a menacing premature apocalypse.
