What has come before…
Investigating an alleged murder on streets of Brooklyn, Detectives Johan Stemmy and Anthony Heron encounter zombies. Detective Stemmy is bitten and dies from the resulting illness. As a last request, he charges Heron with making sure he himself doesn’t become a zombie. After his death, Heron shoots him in the head.
Shawn Rudd, accused of the murder, is released from jail. He goes quickly to meet with his secret boyfriend, Marcus.
A week later, Abby Benjamin, a clerk at a local gym, takes a sick customer to Sisters of Charity Hospital. The customer dies and becomes a zombie infecting several others. Peter Ventura, a young ER doctor, locks down the room, trapping himself, Abby, and several others in with the zombies. After a harrowing experience, they are freed and cleared of infection. The events, however, create a panic which empties every major city. Peter Ventura locks himself in his apartment for a week, dealing with the trauma.
Suzanna DeForest, a customer at Push Ups Gym where Abby works, also contracts the infection. She convinces her boyfriend, John Arrick, to sit with her while she is ill. She dies in the middle of the night and attacks him, biting him on the thigh. Arrick comes down with the plague but miraculously survives.
