About "Unity (1918)": In the fall of 1918, a world ravaged by four years of war was suddenly hit by a mysterious and deadly plague: the Spanish Flu. The illness hit hardest among people healthy, strong, and in the prime of their lives advancing rapidly. As fear of the dreaded illness begins to fill the town of Unity with paranoia, drastic measures are taken: quarantine. Trains are forbidden to stop, the borders are sealed … but when the disease descends upon the town despite the precautions, the citizens begin to turn on each other as they attempt to find a scapegoat for the crisis.
