Abstract:

A new and largely fatal disease is emerging in Asia, causing experts so speculate about the start of the next worldwide pandemic. Avian influenza, aka bird flu, is fatal in four out of five cases. The worst hit country is Indonesia where we met Suci, a young girl whose mother died of bird flu. In 2006, her family gathered to celebrate the Muslim holy day of Eid al-Adha, and Suci's mother contracted bird flu while preparing a meal. She was dead within days. We follow Suci and her family as they attempt to rebuild their lives and struggle to copeas family breadwinner Arif also catches the disease.
