At first glance Blindness comes across as a rather bizarre tale about the residents of an unnamed city who fall prey to an unexplained epidemic of blindness. The fretful city quickly quarantines them to a makeshift prison-cum-care centre where they themselves are left in charge of the governance and day-to-day functioning, while the civilised world outside crumbles and collapses. The inmates include a doctor (Ruffalo) and his wife (Moore), the only member with sight who hides the fact from the rest of the group so that she can remain by the side of the man she dearly loves.
