Autumn Reed is a small town nurse fresh out of college and soon to be wife of Luke Davis, a business major/car salesman. Until she comes home after a grueling double shift at the hospital to find him estranged and violently hungry, which takes her by complete surprise and soon after begins to terrify her. Afraid for her life, Autumn and her sweet dog, Daisy, go on the run leaving the town she has always known as home, to a safe haven hidden off of the main highway and hours away from the abusive Luke. She feels a sense of serenity and peace at her new hideaway and comes to meet a new stranger. But her feeling of safety is soon destroyed when the dead begin to walk the earth. An unknown virus strain breaks loose and consumes many at an extremely rapid rate, turning citizens along the West Coast into decomposing ghouls with an insatiable hunger for the flesh of the living. She must find the strength within to fight and survive, or succumb to the ravenous beasts and die. Autumn will unfold a side of herself that she didn’t know she had, and will stop at nothing to save those she loves.
