"The Rabies Virus is a very deadly and threatening disease. A
virus of violent nature -- but the effects could definitely
be worse. It is what the world's scientists fear most. If
Rabies mutates, the consequences could be devastating. Rabies
is the most threatening disease to modern humanity -- because
of its possibilities." -- (Irving Kahal, 1995)
"The Rabies Virus may very well be the oldest disease known
to mankind. Nearly 4,000 years ago, in the first
civilizations, such as the Babylonian Empire, rabid dogs
were reported of killing humans. In the 1500's-1800's,
near-to-around 900 Rabies infected dogs were being killed
in the streets of Paris alone. It's mutated many times, and
it has a terrifying potential to become a very threatening,
(March 28, 1989): In Bangladesh, the illegal testing of
newly created substances, medications, and chemicals are
being conducted on animals. Practices of this sort later
begin in India, parts of China, and parts of Asia.
(January 8, 2010): Rabies is calculated to be in one in
every five wild dogs and/or cattle.
(May 2016): Rabies runs rampant throughout Asia.
Calculations show that one to two people die every day from
the disease. Cattle die hourly. Practice and testing of
illegal chemicals and medications continue.
(June 26, 2016): A dirty bomb containing some of these new
chemicals spread out in nerve gas form is detonated in a
forested area somewhere in Bangladesh. Over 1,000 Rabies
infected wild dogs and other animals are exposed to the
chemicals in the dirty bomb, causing a mix up of the DNA in
the Rabies Virus. Rabies mutates.
(June 27, 2016): A civilian is received at a hospital in
Bangladesh claiming he was bitten by a rabid dog.
(June 28, 2016): Two more civilians are bitten by "wild
dogs". Paramedics think that it is regular Rabies. By the
time more than five humans have been infected with it, the
new Rabies Virus has infected some ten thousand animal
(3 Days Later): Patient zero throws fits of rage, camera
evidence shows him twitching violently, vomiting, screaming
and growling. He breaks lose and attacks two of the nurses
in the room in the hospital that he is in. He vomits in
their faces -- and then leaves the room. SWAT forces are
called in. The building is placed under quarantine due to
unknown infection. The same day, hospitals in the
surrounding areas begin to receive similar patients.
Quarantine fails. Spreading fast, the new form of Rabies
has infected nearly fifty thousand hosts all together.
(4 Days Later): The new unknown disease has grew out of
control. The government of Bangladesh declares quarantine.
The infection appears on the American news.
(5 Days Later): A report of a sick passenger aboard a
cruise-liner on its way to China is received. No
transmissions were ever heard from the vessel again.
(6 Days Later): Reports of an unknown infection begin in
North Africa and China. Russia declares quarantine.
(7 Days Later): The first video recordings of incidents
that occurred somewhere in China are released onto the
World Wide Web. Reports of riots, freak attacks, and
violent murders appear all over the news and around the
globe. Bangladesh claims terrorism.
(8 Days Later): A sick passenger aboard Air China Flight
786 berserks and attacks five other passengers. The plane
is immediately quarantined and forced to keep in the air.
The plane was never heard of again.
(9 Days Later): Scientists and researchers in France
declare evidence of the Rabies mutation. Symptoms are
released: "Yellow ringed, bloodshot eyes, vomiting,
hemorrhaging, seizures, twitching, gritting of teeth,
pulling of hair, coughing up blood, and extreme aggression.
Statistics show the disease has been declared an epidemic.
(10 Days Later): Governments world-wide begin using
pesticides and chemicals to kill off birds and rodents.
They have no effect. Rioting and raiding of stores begin
across the planet. Scientists name it "Rabies VE2
(12 Days Later): The first report of infection occurs in
New York City, New York. Hundreds of rabid dogs are
reported and killed off in Manhattan.
(13 Days Later): The President of the United States of
America addresses the nation. New York City is placed under
strict military quarantine and minor evacuation is enabled.
(14 Days Later): "War On Infection" is declared. New York
City is fire-bombed.
(16 Days Later): The infection has been reported in every
country. Scientists say that the disease is very aggressive
and deadly. The cure would take years to complete.
(18 Days Later): Governmental and Economic breakdown
occurs. Reports of infection in Los Angeles and Chicago.
New York City is considered highly dangerous and is burned
and bombed. Three hundred thousand people die.
(20 Days Later): 1.5 Million humans are infected. Three
hundred and fifty billion animals have been infected. With
birds and rodents uncontrollably carrying the infection,
the new virus rages like wild-fire across the planet.
(23 Days Later): Reports of the infection in Washington
D.C. force the Presidential Family to be safely bunkered
deep under the White House grounds.
(24 Days Later): Nuclear threats from Iran and North Korea
ensue. Both claim terrorism on one another. Iran is nuked.
Millions die. North Korea is blamed.
(25 Days Later): Cairen Nuclear Facility in North Korea has
been left unattended. Emergency cooling fails. Reports of a
second mutation in the Lyssa Arasella Virus come in from
around the blast area of Cairen Nuclear facility. The
reports are true.
(27 Days Later): Humanity is falling apart. Cities and
towns burn. Nuclear radiation spreads. Thousands of nuclear
facilities across the planet that have been left unattended
fail. The air becomes toxic. Temperatures spike up by the
tens of degrees. Wild-fires rage across the planet.
(1 Month Later):......
(Date: September 4, 2016)
"This virus is very complex. Its victims are so aggressive.
It definitely seems to be a mutation in the Rabies Virus,
but the symptoms are so extreme. It does not seem to kill
off it's host as quickly, and the symptoms are violent.
Nerve damage caused by the virus can cause it's victims not
to feel pain. This is unlike any other disease I have ever
seen. I am terrified..."
"This nation and it's people. This world and it's people.
Have made it through a lot. We have all learned so much. We
may not know what tomorrow holds, or even what today holds.
But there's always a yesterday, and there's always a
future. Our future may look grim right now, and we may be
facing one of the toughest struggles we have ever seen. But
there is still a future. Do not think that we humans as a
whole are surrendering to a cell-sized virus, but instead
that we humans as a whole are becoming neutral against the
virus. In the end, we will survive. We will overcome this
travesty and learn from our past. The devil may have come
-- but God will come also -- one way or another -- either
as a cure or as himself -- but he will come. Do not think
this is the end of everything -- think of this as the end
of human stupidity. This disease will change us. It will
challenge us -- and we will learn from it -- and the
changes will be great..." -- (Presidential Address)

When scene one begins playing, it is viewed through an
unstable camera man's hand. The screen is still black.
The camera visually turns on. A minute beep is heard
as the camera blinks on.
"It's on" -- States an unseen camera man.
The first view is through the vision of the video
camera, following close behind a tan American man. He
is Caucasian, and he is wearing a red and white
striped Hawaiian t-shirt. He is mid-height, average
weight. This man has very short, trimmed
The camera views his back while trembling as they are
both walking to a so-far unknown location.
(Shows walking for five seconds. Camera tilts up and
down from the other man to the ground and feet of the
camera man while walking) The ground they are walking
on is mainly dirt and mud, but there is a few grassy
The camera tilts into focus, upright, as the other
man in front of the camera turns around. The camera
man stops walking as well.
"Well let's go see" states the man in a British
accent. He turns back around and continues walking.
The unseen camera man laughs at the other man's
comment and says "This is what we've been waiting
for" in an American accent.
The camera man turns the camera off to his right
side, showing a heavy jungle filled with tall, grey
trees with green tops.
The camera man turns the camera off to his left side
now, showing another side of heavy jungle with tall
grey trees and green tops.
The other man does not turn around, and keeps
walking, but says to the camera man "This whole place
is engulfed in a jungle" in the same British accent.
The camera man says nothing, and continues to film
the jungle around them and them walking.
All of the sudden the sound of children laughing
arises, getting louder as the two men get closer.
The footage shows a village, full of brown and yellow
shacks and huts. Villagers sit scattered around,
working, standing all around the huts. In the middle
of the town a few children laugh and chase each other
with sticks. The children disappear to the left of
A man, young -- in his early thirties, quickly walks
up to the two men. The camera man and the other man
stop in place. The other man states "Welcome". The
village man is a dark-brown skinned native with
hardly any hair. He is wearing a yellowish
light-skirt. "As to you" softly states the native man
in an Indian accent. "Who be you?" the village man
asks the two men.
