This is the story of Craig Evans, an American expat living in Karachi, Pakistan. Craig is married to Insiya Zia, a Pakistani doctor. During a routine hospital round, contracts a virus called the MN-2. A devastating pathogen, the virus causes uncontrollable outbursts of violent rage. With no cure in sight, the doctors have no choice but put Insiya in a state of induced coma. Meanwhile, the virus continues to spread through the country. People infected by it are referred to as 'carriers'. The only relief is a drug called Sedare. It is manufactured by Ingenec - a local pharmaceutical company - and sold as an adhesive patch. It is so ubiquitous that in the market it is simply called the 'patch'. However, it's not a cure. All it does is calm the symptoms for a few hours. The patch is also useless in advanced stages of the disease. As Insiya's condition continues to deteriorate, it appears Craig has accepted her impending death.

I know, from the poster, the plot, you definitely would expect a zombie movie right? Is it a bad thing if one of these such productions would focus less on gore and more on something else, like Altered Skin did?
Sadly, the case here managed to show a movie that mostly felt like someone was just followed around with a camera, without any idea what the next step is, just rolling with what they got: a conspiracy movie, and barely anything else. Zombies will appear on screen little over 5 minutes total, the rest relies solely on a quest to find out the truth, even tho it is revealed from the very start of the movie.
It has no tension, it doesn't build into anything, it feels so empty, I couldn't believe my eyes. Close to no action whatsoever. I can not possibly recommend this, as it is one of the most boring movies I've seen all year.
