The Uglies


"The Uglies"

Genre: Sci-Fi thriller

A pregnant bioengineer, desperate to reach her family, struggles to escape from quarantine, which shelters the last of the uninfected humans—the unborn children.

JADE's son SEAN smuggles himself on his father's mission to another country, which leaves Jade with her daughter EVE. BRENT, Jade's husband, shocks Jade with the news his whole team got kidnapped. The kidnappers blackmail Jade into placing a package in her bio-lab, which results in two explosions and produces a substance that descends on the town and knocks out anything alive.

Jade awakens in a hospital with her skin ravaged by an unknown virus and finds Eve and other survivors all hit by the same infection with their town under quarantine, surrounded by GREENSUITS hidden behind visors. On her search to escape the quarantine, Jade hits on multiple army checkpoints and steel poles that trigger Jade's heart pacemaker, threatening Jade with a heart attack. Jade meets BLUE, an officer who leads the Greensuits and communicates with Jade only through the displays placed around the town. Jade sneaks into an ambulance with Eve and ends up on the junkyard as one of the body bags to be burned where Blue rescues them in the last moment.

Jade's last hope is an abandoned bridge, mined with explosive charges, which Jade deactivates. A Greensuit shoots at Jade's car, which almost drops in the river. Jade risks it all and confronts Blue, who has a simple message for her "If you leave this city, you will become one of us." Blue removes his mirrored visor and presents Brent, bulldozed by the virus, and Sean, who is also infected. The virus wiped out the whole planet, except this town, protected by something that hid in the box which Jade placed in her bio lab.
