Derek and Cliff are two friends who are preparing to travel around the world, carrying a camera to be able to upload the videos of their experiences to Internet. But while they’re in Europe, Derek has an incident after which his metabolism starts to change, rejecting all food but developing superhuman strength. Afflicted is a new step forward in documentary-style horror and it creates a strong bond between the audience and its unlucky heroes.
