    In the aftermath of a comet breaking up over Earth, most of the planet’s population quickly succumb to a strange disease which turns them into ‘zombies’. Few survive, and those who do, quickly discover all existing fuel sources have been rendered useless by the plague. Trapped in a wilderness teeming with living dead and unable to travel to any safer location, survivors have little to live for. One of those survivors, family man Barry has lost everything except his sister Brooke. But even as the disaster unfolds, Brooke is kidnapped by a gang of paramilitary thugs and dragged off to a terrifying medical lab run by a psychotic ‘doctor’ who is performing a series of deranged experiments on plague survivors.
    As Brooke struggles to devise an escape plan, she slowly realises that the Doctor’s experiments have given her strange powers over his zombie captives. Meanwhile, Barry teams up with fellow survivors Benny, Frank and Kelly, determined to rescue Brooke and protect what family he has left.
