    • Synopsis
    • During a full zombie pandemic, Kin, a young geek from London, is traveling across the South of France trying to find his girlfriend Julie. Along the way, he meets Joe, a former legionnaire, who rescues him and gives him shelter in his caravan. The Veteran soon discovers that the geek is able to broadcast via the TV network and asks him to collaborate on a project that could save humanity: broadcast his anti-zombies methods all around the world! In fact, Joe discovered the weak point of the enemy: The undead are nostalgic about their former lives! A simple barbecue then becomes a weapon to ambush zombies, attracted by the good smell of grilled meat!

      Kin, who always wanted to be a hero, accepts to film and broadcast the video. Despite some artistic differences, the capricious geek and the grumpy veteran manage to complete their anti-zombie tutorial, when a new enemy appears: former traders turned into mutant zombies! The tutorial is no longer efficient and must be updated. After capturing a specimen (Gerrit), Joe is building a new trap, but it won’t work and Gerrit escapes! In response, the zombies traders burn Joe’s caravan to the ground and kill his pet zombie. Joe wants his revenge that will be the highlight of their movie. Now that the final battle has come, Kin and Joe face hordes of zombies, ready to eat them alive.

      Joe's plan is unfolding as expected: he manages to trap the enemy behind a wall of flames and exterminates them without mercy. Only Gerrit survives! But before Joe has the satisfaction to kill him with his own hands, Gerrit is beheaded by his former girlfriend as a revenge for turning her into a zombie.

      Joe, disappointed to have been deprived of his vengeance, smiles again as Gerrit’s head lives and moves. He grabs it and looks him straight in the eye with an idea in the back of his mind, which will be revealed later.

      Now that the tutorial is on air, and the world is about to be saved, Joe takes Kin to Julie, and finds out she’s just a Facebook friend! Kin will be surprised as well when he realizes she’s a head taller him. Then Joe meets Julie’s mother, a real female Rambo, with whom he falls in love. They all finally pay attention to Gerrit’s punishment: His head is turning in the middle of bank notes he cannot touch.
