In Ontario’s tiny town of Pontypool, radio DJ Grant Mazzy is shocked to witness a number of people start to develop symptoms of some obscure virus that is spreading like wildfire- only problem is; the virus seems to transmit itself and infect others through certain words in the English language…

Symptoms can vary from excessive use of terms of endearment, to repetition of certain words and phrases, up to a point where you’re not making any sense  with words and meanings in complete contradiction- then something even worse begins…
