An intense family drama set against the backdrop of a global catastrophe, “The Outbreak” portrays an unknown virus that quickly paralyzes the city of Moscow. Sergey, accompanied by his new lover and her autistic son, as well as his ex-wife, their own son, and several other companions who have joined them, is trying to escape beyond the borders of the quarantine.
Somewhere far away, on a remote island in Karelia, there is a hunting lodge where they can start their lives anew. But the road to a new life will not be easy, because our heroes are not only fleeing from the global catastrophe, they also have to face and deal with their own family dramas.
“The Outbreak” is based on bestselling book, “Vongozero”, which was written by Yana Vagner and translated into eleven languages. (One of the parts is played by Maryana Spivak (principle role in the film, Loveless by Andrei Zvyagintsev, which won the “Jury Prize” at Cannes in 2017).)
“The Outbreak” is included in the maim competition of the international festival CanneSeries 2019.
