Fourteen-year-old Jeremy Barker is obsessed with zombie movies. He attends an all-boy Catholic High School where roving gangs in plaid make his days a living hell. His mother is an absentee pill head, his older brother a self-diagnosed sex-addict, and his father an ex-Marine realtor who disappears night after night without explanation. Jeremy navigates it all with a code cobbled together from Night of the Living Dead, 28 Days Later, Planet Terror, Zombieland and Dawn of the Dead:

•Avoid Contact
•Keep Quiet
•Forget the Past
•Lock-and-load
•Fight to Survive

The code is put to the test when he discovers in his father’s closet a bizarre homemade video of a man strapped to a bed, being prepped for some sort of surgical procedure. As Jeremy–troubled but ever-optimistic–attempts to trace the origin of the video, this remarkable debut moves from its sharp, precocious beginnings to a climax of almost unthinkable violence, testing him to the core.
