As a mysterious epidemic of sudden blindness sweeps across a city, causing panic and paranoia to set in amongst its citizens. The newly-blinded victims of the so-called "White Sickness" are rounded up and quarantined in a crumbling mental asylum where all semblance of ordinary life begins to break down. But, inside the quarantined hospital, one woman (Julianne Moore) who has not been affected by the contagion, but pretends to be blind in order to stay beside her husband (Mark Ruffalo), leads a makeshift family of seven people on a journey to break out of the hospital and into the devastated city where they may be the only hope left. Fernando ("CITY OF GOD" "THE CONSTANT GARDNER") Meirelles directs. Based on the novel by Jose Saramago.
