The story revolves around Atlanta where a mysterious epidemic has caused mayhem. As the highly contagious, mystery virus kept infecting people at a very fast rate, the government had to put a part of the city into total lockdown.
This interesting series portrays the life of those people inside the Cordon who are struggling to live, while the government and others are trying to maintain law and order while searching for a cure. We get to see how families are torn apart, how people lose their loved ones.
We also see glimpses of a new dawn where people still hoped to survive and live as a society. We can’t help but wish that they beat the virus and come out victorious. What added a twist to the story, was the introduction of a conspiracy that connected the government and the contagion. Overall, the diversity of characters with different stories, both inside and outside the containment zone, make the series thrilling.
