Journalist Hunter Morgan comes face-to-face with terrible truths, both personal and political. Visiting a local hospital, he discovers firsthand that zombies aren’t being treated there. Instead, they’re being sent to a more sinister fate in a program organized by the government. Fearing he’ll be identified by the helicopters and drones flying constantly over the house where he’s staying, he sets about to permanently alter his appearance. Although a ray of sunshine exists in his life, he becomes filled with despair over the current state of the world. There are even rumors that the United States and Mexico will go to war.
