After a boarder inadvertently brings the plague with him from London, the disease quickly spreads to families throughout the village. Michael Mompellion, the minister, decides that it is best to quarantine the village in order to keep other towns safe. This makes people panic and paranoid about their friends and neighbors. People are on edge: they are afraid of being sick or accused of being sick.
