      Meet Doug and Cindy, an ordinary couple with ordinary lives. Doug’s brother, David, lives in Boston and works for a major newspaper there. Doug and Cindy discuss their day and the outbreak of the flu. A crescendo builds as the government announces the introduction of a new flu vaccine, which is guaranteed to immunize everyone from the flu, permanently. Suddenly, a surprise visit from Doug’s brother, David, comes with news of controversial insight on the new flu vaccine. David has inside information that the newspaper does not have the liberty to make public knowledge. Cindy begins to have nightmares about what could be. From here, each chapter unfolds, revealing new insight concerning information on the new flu vaccine. All this transpires as the conflict between Hezbollah and Israel is headline news. The story captures your attention and keeps you in anticipation, as Cindy’s nightmares may become realities.
