The Ebola virus is one of six known species within the genus Ebolavirus. Four of the six viruses, including the EBOV, cause a severe and often fatal hemorrhagic fever in humans and other mammals. The Ebola is one of the deadliest viruses known to men.

In 2013, the most widespread outbreak of the Ebola virus disease in history began, and continued until 2016. It was contaminated for a while, but in August 2018, it began again.

At the peak of the virus in 2014, it took more than 3,500 lives in Congo, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and other African countries.

This documentary reveals the full horror of a full-scale Ebola epidemic. The movie begins with the home of the local film-maker, Tyson Conteh. He and his crew risked their lives to record at close quarters the tragedy unfolding around them. Sadly, not all of them survived the epidemic.

What they recorded is not just history, but a warning for the future as well.
