Blindness

Lust is blind.
  • If I was a real doctor I'd use you to develop a vaccine...

A new contagious virus has apppeared, which causes instant blindness to anyone susceptible to it. After a doctor and his patients are infected, they are rounded up by government agents and put into quarantine. The doctor's wife, who has natural immunity to the virus, pretends to be blind so that she can look after her husband. In the hospital, things soon degenerate into chaos when one victim declares himself king and starts making unreasonable demands on the other patients. It's up to the doctor's wife, as the only patient able to see, to rescue the situation.
