In spite of that he rushes to Moscow to save his ex-wife and their son, although she hates Sergei . These people, who never believed they'd be under the same roof again, have to put the past behind them and set off on a long, dangerous journey north to find an isolated hunting lodge on a deserted island. The Outbreak is a family drama in the midst of a global disaster. It is one of the first post-apocalyptic TV shows in Russia and is based on bestselling book, Vongozero, which was written by Yana Vagner and translated into eleven languages.
