  • A small group of mismatched survivors of a zombie apocalypse try to escape to a rumoured rescue point on the Essex coast.

  • Overnight, the United Kingdom was consumed by an epidemic of terrifying proportions. The majority of the population were killed in a matter of hours as millions of recently-dead people returned to life and began to attack and kill the living. The disaster spread so rapidly that the government had no time to control the situation. The order to evacuate England was given. But it was too late. Now, the following day, a small group of mismatched survivors find themselves trapped in the famous town of Brentwood, hunted by large hordes of fast-moving corpses. They must learn to work together and reach the last-known point of rescue, Southend-on-Sea, or face certain death. Or worse.

  • One Friday night, all of England fell to a mysterious virus. Society collapsed in a matter of hours and the Government, in a last-ditch effort to halt the spread of the infection, detonated nuclear weapons high above London. The resulting blast rendered anything electronic useless. The following day, in this desolate and dangerous new world, a mismatched group of survivors find themselves stranded in the county of Essex. A soldier, a footballer's wife, a student, a local lad with an attitude, a shop worker, a policeman and a woman with a mysterious past are all thrown together in a world turned on its head. Faced with certain death at the hands of millions of recently-undead maniacs pouring out of a fallen London, they must travel on foot to the coast in an attempt to flee England forever. Time is running out and the dead are running in.
