Kyle is awakened out of an amazing dream by his friends, Ralph and Olivia. They are all frantic, saying it's the end of the world. He thinks the dumb computer geeks are crazy and he just wants to go back to sleep, but then they turn on the TV news and his world changes.
Zombies are running amok. There was a full-scale nuclear exchange overnight, followed up with a biological weapon attack.
He just wants to get home to his family. The three of them are convinced the skills they learned playing the video game Zombie Hunter will serve them well. It quickly proves nothing like the game, and there are a lot of zombies between them and home.
Kyle fights his way through the undead and other survivors, with his friends by his side. Their desire is to get back to their small home town before the zombies get their families. And then the next wave of attacks hit and the lights go out.
