In the face of terror, the rebellion of two young lovers
A sleepy town, where nothing happens. A governor. Out of nowhere, a tyrant suddenly appears and seizes power. He’s called “The Plague” and decrees the state of siege. From then on, the town undergoes a cruel dictatorship: suspension of fundamental freedoms, inhumane rules, terror. Helped by an evil secretary, the tyrant inoculates randomly his subjects with the plague and kill them until a young man, helped by his beloved one, rises up in protest and organizes the resistance. The town will be freed in exchange for his life. The girl will survive. A grand political allegory.
