Five years after her parents traumatizing divorce, Dixie has become such a gloomy, adolescent, outcast that kids at school not only laugh at her, but also call her Zombie. Black gothic clothing, piercings and an angry scowl on her face don’t help her image much. Dixie hates the world and the world hates her. In an act of desperation, she runs away during a storm and is knocked unconscious by a falling branch. When she awakens, she finds herself buried at a graveyard: Dixie is now a real zombie!
