    • Synopsis
    • Five young, 20-something tourists from Britain - two British boys, a British girl, a girl born and raised in Croatia and an American girl, all friends from a university in London - are coming in Croatia for a summer vacation, a week that will be spent on a small island of the Adriatic Coast. The plan is to go to Zrće, “Croatian Ibiza”, but for a week they will stay on the island, because the girl of Croatian origins has family there and American girl has a broken
      heart; few days of idyllic life is perfect for emotional distress. They decide to enjoy the vacation filled with skinny dipping, dancing, sex, private beach parties...
      But holiday will soon have a wild turn when five of them end up in the middle of zombie invasion!
      Everything started when Russian billionaire (Big Pharma money) decided he liked the island
      and wanted it for himself. With the help of local politicians, he found out that under the law
      he could buy the whole island but only if it’s not populated. So he created a perfect plan - he contaminated a Russian tourist with “Zombie virus”, cannibalistic form of rabies, with a goal of spreading the disease through the isolated island community.
      Few locals will fight against the Zombie plague with the help of British tourists, but ones who are immune to a virus are local “retards”, mentally challenged community, a product of a long tradition of island incest, who in the end become unexpected heroes of the story and only surviving humans of the zombie apocalypse.
