When Bruce Martin (Brian Thomas Barnhardt), a bumbling delivery boy for a local chemical plant, accidentally introduces a potent toxin into the city's water supply, he inadvertently begins the downfall of humanity by unleashing a city of flesh-eating nightmares on the world. To help rectify the problem, Bruce and his equally brain-dead friend Scags (Matthew Kelsey), devise a "fool-proof" plan to stop the army of the undead from growing. Armed with a sawed-off shotgun, a '74 Dodge Charger and their low IQs, Bruce and Scags hook up with two stranded girls (Ashley Cantina and Lilly Small) and a zombie-bitten boyfriend (Jorge Mejia) in a deserted cabin to do the only thing which will get them through the night, Pray For Dawn.
