The year is 2030. Four years ago, a virus from Africa killed millions of people throughout the world. Europe tightened its borders and dispatched scientists to contaminated areas. Eric, a black French researcher sent to Dakar, is one of them. As he’s close to discovering the antidote, new hotbeds of the virus appear in the area, leading to a political coup. In the middle of the chaos, Eric learns that his son, living in Bordeaux with his wife Gaëlle, has been contaminated. To save his family, he has no other choice but to inject himself with the virus and take the wild road back to France.

GOALS AT THE EUROPEAN PROJECT AND TALENT FORUM
Although still at an early stage of development, we are confident in PANDEMIA’s originality and potential as a breathtaking dystopian thriller. Since our protagonist’s journey takes him through North Africa, Spain and France, we’re looking to forge alliances with international broadcasters / platforms, partners and distributors to take this project into production and bring you into PANDEMIA’s bleak but realistic version of 2030.
INDIE PROD was founded in 2015 by Eric Névé and Nicolas Eschbach to produce French and international features and TV series carried on by gifted emerging and confirmed filmmakers. Our mission statement: discovering rising talents and building long- term relationships with them, both in the film and in the TV fields.
