When Alaine meets her ex, Alex, at pre-agreed coordinates following a zombie apocalypse, she’s surprised to discover it’s the location of a slaughterhouse—and that it contains a single zombie, named Chewy. As Alaine and Alex’s conflicting views and problematic relationship escalates around the existence of Chewy, they careen towards a dark resolution.

  • Chewy: A zombie, any adult age, male-presenting. Sometimes talks.
