It has been 15 months since the zombie apocalypse. With no new infections for months, the zombies have decayed away; deteriorating to slow, disordered, toothless pests. A group of eight survivors are in the middle of a six-day march across the badlands. A faction splits away from the group and discovers a mysterious serene zombie that lays his hands upon one of the horde, who violently returns to life. Petrified, the resurrected man struggles to escape but is immediately re-devoured; a continual recycling of the horde that keeps them fresh and extraordinarily dangerous. Is this the answer to the zombie plague? A deadly balancing act develops between survival and heroism, in an increasingly splatter-ridden game of cat-and-mouse.
