H2N2, H5N1, SARS … behind these abbreviations lie some poorly defined biological “things” that we call viruses. For several months, one of them - H1N1, still benign - has been spreading rapidly across all continents. By relying on the real facts of the current propagation and evolution of this flu virus, this documentary takes a scientific look at this new strain to fully understand how an entity of 250 nanometres “born” in Mexico and incapable of reproducing by itself, can generate a pandemic! Faced with the tidal wave of information and interpretation and the media hype, this film tries to provide explanation, information and nuances. Point by point, it analyses what this flu is, what makes it different from a seasonal virus, what are its possible mutations, how it spreads and what are the possible scenarios for its development, with differing consequences for rich and poor countries.
