Well, without plot spoiling I will say that the movie eventually gets to Day 1 in a rather interesting place in the film and it explains how everything started, the deadly virus that is.

The Adjustment Bureau

He wants to do what is right and it is easy to go along with him for this treacherous journey into the nightmare of war [...]


This is an inspiring film. Nelson Mandela, played by Morgan Freeman, is portrayed as not only a man who understood people and the need for forgiveness, but also was a pretty good judge of finding successful ways to forge common ground with people, even with those who had formerly opposed one [...]
