Synopsis: In "Patient Zero," our narrator is a little boy in the hospital. He's been in the hospital for a long, long time. In fact, he is not allowed to leave the hospital — and when people come to visit him, they must wear funny suits so that they don't get sick. And as time goes on, and he has fewer and fewer visitors, he starts to wonder what's going on outside.
