Two friends embark on a dangerous journey to seek the cure for a lethal airborne virus that has caused chaos in a South Korean city. This one is a pretty good disease/disaster film.

Okay, there’s also the little girl’s mom, one of the main research M.D.s leading the battle against the flu. Strong characters and all-around good acting.
