[ Story ]

A horror-cum-disaster film based on Hanazawa Kengo's identically titled comic. It depicts the survival of humanity driven to the edge of ruin by a mysterious infection turning humans into zombies. At the helm is Sato Shinsuke, who has directed many live-action adaptations of manga and light novels.
The outbreak of a menacing virus is turning humans into zombies one after the other. Hideo (Oizumi Yo), a manga artist's assistant who enjoys gun marksmanship as a pastime, decides to seek out a secure haven with shotgun in hand. On his way, he meets high school girl, Hitomi (Arimura Kasumi), and former nurse, Yabu (Nagasawa Masami).
