STEPHEN LECTURE (V.O.)
Centuries before the first caveman, viruses existed on earth. In the beginning, they were harmless messengers delivering genetic information from newly developed life forms.

Earlier that day.
Milla has a swim meet on Friday.
I’ll be there.
Your brother invited us over to dinner this weekend.
Brother or new wife?
Be nice Stephen. It’s not her fault she’s number three.
Right. Well, number four is making lasagna.
Stephen smiles as he walks over to his wife and kisses her on the forehead.
STEPHEN LECTURE (V.O)
As viruses adapted to the changing environment, the role of messenger to cells turned into defiler of genes. In fact - Virus is Latin for poison.
Thank you, but I’m not in the mood.
No, I’m serious. You’re burning up. Should you be going into the shop today?
Probably not, but tell that to the Riveras
They ordered five hundred cupcakes for their daughter’s quinceanera celebration, and I’ve had a no show this morning, already.
Alright cake boss but tell the Riveras, I’m not happy,
(laughs) Go. You’re gonna miss your flight.
So much can happen in that time
You can change from hopeless to sublime
Or be helpless when you once were fine
Just a day can make you lose your mind
Life can range from sun to showers
In 24 hours
In a bit of a hurry
I’m so behind
There’s no need to worry
I’ll be fine
Wish I had more time
To get things in line
Than 24 hours
