Christians vs Zombies – Synopsis

Matthew eats breakfast, takes a brownbag lunch Rachael, his spouse, prepared and leaves for work.

It is predawn. Matthew drives to work and listens to a sermon on a CD. The sermon is about not stealing. There is no traffic on the road. Some figures step onto a roadway he just passed. Matthew drives at the posted speed limit. A car on the opposite side of the divided highway speeds by.

In a ditch adjacent to the roadway, and out of sight for Matthew, is a crashed car. The smashed car’s radio is on. A voice on the radio mentions roving bands of attackers.

Matthew arrives at his office building. He enters the building and the entrance door locks just before a zombie reaches it. Matthew goes to his cubicle, which is on the 13th floor, and readies for his workday.

It’s 7:13 AM and Rachael is reading her Bible in a televisionless living room. Rustling outside attracts her attention.

Rachael goes outside and sees armed people running. A woman, armed to the teeth, tells her zombies are coming. The woman gives Rachael a rifle and some ammunition. Rachael joins the firing line her neighbors are forming.

Matthew is working at his desk. Outside an out-of-control vehicle crashed through an office window. Some zombies make their way through the broken window.
