Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Director Manuel Carballo puts a unique spin on the standard zombie story with this thriller set in a future where scientists have developed the ability to halt transformation in the infected, and following a young couple trapped in a terrifying realm between the living and the dead. Thanks to the discovery of a unique Return Protein, zombie-attack victims can take daily injections to avoid becoming the living dead. But as the strength of so-called Anti-Return groups begins to grow, rumors of dwindling Return Protein stocks spark a wave of panic. Alex (Kris Holden-Reid) is a young professional who relies on the serum to lead a normal life. The only person who knows he is Returned is his girlfriend Kate (Emily Hampshire). When the government attempts to gather all Returned in a secure medical facility under the guise of helping them, Alex and Kate load up on Return Protein and go on the run. But their supply is dwindling fast, and with society crumbling they must find a way to keep Alex from becoming what he fears most.
