Plot

A zombie apocalypse has just broken out in Birmingham. Sisters Jo and Kat are traveling together with unlikely companions Amar and Sunny. Jo has just moved back with her younger sister Kat, who is a total geek, an avid gamer girl and loves conspiracy theories.

Jo finds it super hard to trust Kat when she reveals that the zombie apocalypse is really happening in Birmingham. Amar is an upbeat gym buddy ready to face things as they come. His oldest pal Sunny, on the other hand, is a total wannabe loner who would rather sit out the apocalypse from the comfort of the sofa in his house.

The four find themselves trapped on board Dorothy, a narrowboat on the Grand Union canal. As their journey begins, friendships develop over due course of time, there are arguments and alliance formations, then one thing leads to the other and soon there are sparks flying between them.

They must save themselves by surviving on a canal boat. Along the way, they realize that there is no running away from problems of everyday life, even if it is in a zombie apocalypse.
