In the movie, the mysterious outbreak of an infectious and deadly virus leaves a team of doctors in the U.S state of New York in danger while investigating to find the cause of death in passengers and crew members on a Boeing 777. The Strain by bringing out the "Ancients" in form of Strigoi which have rapidly wiped out the entirety of the city, manages to portray the horrific image behind the movie. The involvement of a rare but efficient human hybrid, Mr. Quinlan who is also the son of the Master offers a ray of hope, but the fight is far from over. While the writer is credited for exploring the far-reaching effects of the Master's rise to power through a slow-building suspense of events, on the side of humans the movie exposes our ingrained selfishness which enhances his plan to manipulate and corrupt such a large population in order to fulfil his evil plan. In addition, it is difficult to explain how such a viral outbreak was contained within just the areas of New York, considering that the bigger the numbers, the stronger the Master became. The end is predictable but generally engaging as the Master is exposed and his influence shortlived, despite his effort to disguise himself. The few survivors if any, would have turned out to be fighters who have selflessly sacrificed everything in their quest to find and destroy the source to save mankind, yet one cannot underestimate the damage left behind.
