Months after the outbreak of an unknown disease that turned most of humanity into homicidal zombies: Cassie (Nicole Kruex), one of the few who isn't infected, tries to make it to the East Coast, where she believes to be a safe haven for humanity and expects to reunite with her brother (Aaron Courteau). On her journey, Cassie has crossed paths with a 13 year old catatonic boy, Jake (Tommy Propson), whom she has adopted as her traveling companion. He helps her fight her loneliness, even though he doesn't speak. But while she's not taking care of Jake or fighting zombies, Cassie mainly reminisces about the past, about her boyfriend Alan (Shane McCaffrey), and how he never got along with her brother, even though the two were the most important persons of her life. And how Alan never had time for her because he was a journalist, and often spent weeks on time in warzones and the like on short notice - including the very area of the outbreak of the disease.

Eventually, Cassie and Jake, who haven't seen a living soul in ages, run in more and more live human beings, all of whom seem to be totally oblivious about what's going on. Then eventually, Jake disappears, just like that, and Cassie suddenly has to come to term with a truth even worse than the zombification of the country ...

Among all the zombie films that have come out in recent years, this is one of the most interesting, as it doesn't relie too much on the obligatory zombie attacks and the violence that comes with them, but instead presents the audience with well fleshed-out characters with believable conflicts and traumata, and the movie gives this characters (especially Cassie of course) plenty of room to evolve. Add to this a subtle and atmospheric directorial effort and a compelling central performance by Nicole Kruex, and you've got yourself a pretty good movie.

Recommended, actually!
