Peaceful, rustic Berkeley is a charming fishing community where life is sweet and the people friendly. All that is about to change. An avalanche of meteorites bombards the town, heralding an otherworldly infection. The living dead are awakened and local girl Rene (Felicity Mason) finds herself caught in a nightmare of zombies hungry for human flesh.
