Synopsis: (Sci-Fi/Horror) An unknown disease sweeps through the world, causing people to become nothing but lifeless empty shells called Sleepers. A young and curious inventor named Jed is determined to prove the victims are still human and worth saving, but his inventions continuously fail. It isn't until another survivor appears that Jed is exposed to the possible dangers behind the Sleeper illness, and he must convince his new companion that there is a cure, and a reason, to save humanity.

Production Background & Fun Facts: I was told I wouldn't be allowed to make a zombie film. So I made one. But I wanted to focus on an often unanswered question. Can zombies ever be redeemable? Is there something about being human that can ever be fully lost? I hope my film brings these questions to mind and, hopefully, brings the audience closer to an answer.
