“B" watches zombie attacks on TV and online but isn’t sure what to make of them. Friends and family argue that it must be a hoax or even an amazing marketing gimmick for a new film. B hopes they are a huge joke. Meanwhile B must deal with things closer to home. Avoiding parents fighting. Playing the politics of school with friends and enemies. Trying to figure out if it makes sense to act up to impress your parents when you know inside some of what they believe is wrong. Hardest of all are the times B tries to figure out which things are acting, just playing head games with people, and which things are who you really are? And then the zombies show up.
