Plot Summary
Zombies have taken over the world, and a ragtag band of soldiers led by Sarge Crockett (Alan Van Sprang) roams the countryside trying to scavenge what they can.

But when they arrive, they find the supposed paradise torn apart by a family feud between the O'Flynns, who want to exterminate all zombies, and the Muldoons, who coexist peacefully with their undead relatives.
