Plague: a sic love story by Matthew Heiti
Love is a disease.
A mysterious sickness has cocooned the city in paranoia and suspicion. A husband and wife seal themselves into their squalid tenement flat to attend the sickbed of their baby. While the ilness gnaws at the seams, Bernard and Remy dig toward the truth at the heart of their life. Inspired by Fawlty Towers and Woody Allen, Plague is a grotesque dystopian comedy about the sickening power of love.
