LOGLINE
Part 1, THE LOVE THAT WOULD NOT DIE
- A love story set in an apocalyptic future about letting go of the past

BACK OF THE BOX
The zombie apocalypse has become a depressing grind for sole survivor Stan, as he spends his days killing zombies, drinking hard, watching his ex girlfriend (Lydia) shamble in front of his fortified one-room shack. But everything changes when the Kid appears in a glowing airstream trailer- a kid whose blood has the power to end the zombie plague- and rescue Lydia. But the Kid is not what he seems, and zombies who bite him become something more horrifying than anyone imagined - singing, dancing, zombie pop rock divas...

A MORE IN DEPTH-SYNOPSIS
Part 1 opens at a ZED talk (Zeitgeist, Entertainment, Design), where tech mogul Steve presents his latest invention, iNODIE- a new pill which promises immortality! But iNodie has a few side effects- including turning people into highly contagious flesh eating monsters - zombies. Eager to live forever and terrified of death, the vast majority of humans take the pill, and those who don't soon become infected...
Soon, all that is left of 7 billion humans is one troubled man: former scientist Stan and his trusty Dog. Stan is stuck in a rut of zombie bashing, hard drinking, and heartbreak over his undead ex, Lydia, who endlessly shambles in front of Stan's fortified one-room shack.
But everything changes when a mysterious Kid appears in a glowing airstream trailer, seemingly out of thin air. Stan rescues the Kid from a zombie attack, but soon finds himself facing a new threat - the Neon Monster, a singing dancing 'uber' zombie with his own undead entourage. Stan's world is further unbalanced when the Kid confesses the bizarre truth- he's a time traveler sent from the past to save the future. Furthermore, in a stunning plot twist, the Kid's musically mutated DNA, making him immune to zombie infection and causes zombies who bite him to become rock divas. The Kid is the key to saving the world- and bringing back Lydia. In a dramatic showdown, Stan breaks out his flamethrower and prepares to save the world- but just as victory is in sight, the Neon Monster reveals - a new rock zombie diva - Stan's former girlfriend, Lydia!!!
