Set in an alternate timeline where the zombie apocalypse called the rising has happened. A treatment was created to turn zombies (or known as partially undead sufferers in this universe) from their feral states to their former human selves. This show focuses on a young man Kieren who is a zombie and his life as he rejoins his family in a town that formed a famous militia that hunted and killed zombies during the rising. Can the living loved ones forgive their zombie family members for their actions in the rising? Can the now human zombies forgive themselves for what they did in their feral state? This show covers many themes over the course of its two season run: Racism, hate crimes, segregation, homophobia, PTSD, and religion. It also asks the main question: what does it mean to be human?
