In "World War Z," the Lane family is introduced including father Gerry (Pitt), who works for the United Nations, wife Karen (Mireille Enos), and daughters Rachel (Abigail Hargrove) and Constance (Sterling Jerins). Everything is good for the family as they enjoy breakfast together then head out in the car when it becomes apparent that something is amiss outside. Traffic is stopped and explosions can be heard ahead of them. While Gerry attempts to contact his fellow UN employees for information on what's happening, he herds his family into a building for safety.
It's not long before Gerry and his family learn that they are dealing with a zombie pandemic and their safety is seriously at risk. Using his connections, Gerry has their family rescued by helicopter and taken to an aircraft carrier. There, Gerry is recruited to join the fight against the zombie apocalypse but he struggles to decide between staying with his family to keep them safe or joining the fight to save all of mankind. James Badge Dale, Ludi Boeken, Matthew Fox, David Morse and David Andrews all co-star in the film.

We Don't Know
Gerry: "Thierry, what is this? Is this thing worldwide? Is anyone doing better than we are?"
Thierry: "We don't know. If we knew where this thing started, maybe we could kill it."
After seeing first hand the mass chaos in the city, Gerry contacts his friend and fellow UN employee Thierry to get more information on what exactly is happening. While Thierry doesn't really know what's going on just yet, he does theorize that if they can pinpoint the source they can stop it.

Karen: "I'll keep our kids safe."
Constance: "I'm scared."
Karen: "How do we know they're coming?"
Gerry: "They're coming. Ready? Go! Go! Go!"
