In 2004, Ebola ravaged a wildlife sanctuary in Congo. At this time a film was shot, following the desperate efforts of a primatologist to find surviving gorillas and try to learn about this gruesome virus.

10 years later this film is now a unique testimony on the early appearance of a disease that is now hitting West Africa and frightening the rest of the world.
