On a remote island, a bizarre infection is turning lumber workers into flesh eating zombies. Tyler, the son of the lumber company CEO, is dispatched to the region to find out why they have lost communications with their mill. A reluctant participant in the workings of his father’s company, Tyler's allegiance rests with the protestors who habitually camp near the mill in defense of the old growth forest the company is cutting down. When he arrives on the scene, the zombies are stalking the few uninfected people left, and Tyler has to mediate between the remaining lumber workers and protestors. They must shelve their differences and work together to insure their survival.
