SYNOPSIS: With the discovery of a treatment for the zombie disease, a new society rises out of the ashes of the zombiepocalypse: Shelter, the last city in the world. The city is divided between two classes, the Z-positive former zombies and the uninfected Z-negative. 

Two sets of lovers strive to find happiness while being torn apart by the political and violent conflict between Shelter’s Z-negative elite and the ascendant Z-positive insurgency known as the Zealots. Two scientists race to find a cure to finally bring peace to the city, while a mysterious force threatens to consume the last remnants of humanity, body and soul.

As we follow the lives of people on both sides of this disease; stories of intimacy, adversity, resistance, loss, healing, and love emerge from this epic struggle.
