Movie Info

In this chilling made-for-cable drama, the population of the United States is nearly wiped out by a sexually transmitted disease. In order to stop its spread, those infected are sequestered in special camps. To make sure no infected person is allowed to go free, a group of vigilantes begins terrorizing city streets in search of carriers. The story is based on an off-Broadway play by Alan Browne.

Audience Reviews for Daybreak


A futuristic view from the perspective of the early 90's on how the Government handles what they call the plague, which is AIDS.The fascist quarantine & inhumane treatment of those that have it cause some to rebel & go underground to help & save those that are sick & expose the coverup.Funny to see Willie Garson(who will later play Stanford on SATC) & David Eigengerg (Steve on SATC). act in a movie together before reaching fame on the series Sex & the City, & both with longish hair.I love Cuba Gooding Jr, in any role, but he was great as "Tourch" the head of the rebels, in this.This film was nothing to write home about, but it is interesting how, not so long ago, so little was understood about AIDS & what panic it caused.

*** (out of four) Cuba Gooding Jr plays Torch, a rebel who leads a band of resistance fighters against a totalitarian government who has quarantined it's people.
