Starting in China in the 14th Century and lasting until the start of the 18th Century, a massive outbreak of the Bubonic plague more commonly known as "The Black Death" wiped out a third of the worlds human population. This was before the advent of the industrial age, and before mass transit systems such as rail networks, airliners, sealiners and of course the automobile. Should a pandemic of such magnitude and veracity be unleashed in the modern age, the outcome for the human race would be nothing short of apocalyptic.

This is what was set up in 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes, with the release of the Simian Flu, which originated from the proposed, aggressive cure for Alzheimers; ALZ-113. Instead of curing the debilitating disease ALZ-113 instead increased the intelligence of our ape cousins, while alternately proving to be fatal to a large percentage of the human population. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set 10 years after the emergeance of the Simian Flu.

Science website Motherboard, together with studio 20th Century Fox have released three short films chronicling events during the 10 year spread of the Simian Flu, set in the first, fifth and tenth year  - together they are known as Before the Dawn...
