A mysterious infectious disease which robs all those affected of their sight, begins to spread across society, soon becoming an epidemic. Segregated and confined to an old abandoned mental asylum guarded by armed soldiers, the sick experience a  merciless descent into a living hell, where dignity, respect and human pity are overshadowed and finally replaced by the violence of primal needs and insticts, of the strong and their abuse of power. However, the solidarity and love of a few unites and holds a small group of survivors together and later these few find their sight restored and return to live in the world with ‘new eyes’.
