A chef and a scientist fall in love as an epidemic begins to rob people of their sensory perceptions.
David Mackenzie watched the Fernando Meirelles film Blindness (2008) before filming commenced so that he wouldn't emulate it in any way. (The two film both deal with the loss of senses.)
There was darkness. There is light. There are men and women. There's food. There are restaurants. Disease. There's work. Traffic. The days as we know them, the world as we imagine the world.
When Stephen is talking to Susan and the Virologist near the beginning of the film, a doctor can be seen running down the stairs behind him towards the floor below. The camera cuts away and then back to Stephen, showing the doctor running back down the stairs again, then after a second cut back, he vanishes.
