It's been three months since a killer disease wiped out 99% of the population. Three months since the dead reanimated. The living are few and far between now, and those who are still alive stick together to give themselves the best chance of continuing to survive. One small group has established a community on an inhospitable island. A second, much larger band of refugees have made their base in a fortified castle on the coast, overlooking the ocean. The world has become a silent, desolate vacuum of a place, and when the survivors from the island unknowingly encroach on the other group's territory, tensions are immediately raised. Each side eyes the others' position and achievements with envy and distrust. The condition of the dead is continuing to deteriorate, and as their bodies decay, the creatures' aggression increases. Under siege from an army of thousands upon thousands of corpses, the survivors on the mainland launch a desperate attempt to take over the island and claim it for their own. Are we entering mankind's final days? In the aftermath of the disease, will the last survivors destroy each other, or will the dead destroy them all?
