1941. The Nazis have developed a virus which creates a vicious, brain-eating army out of a secret population of peaceful, vegetarian zombies. British scientists have discovered a single zombie (Ben Lipson) that is impervious to the violence-inducing virus.

Scientist Larisa Croft (Magenta Brooks) and anthropologist Cody Corvenus (Andrew Solovay) must travel back in time to trace this dance-loving zombie's movements and determine the source of his immunity. Will Larisa and Cody be able to save the future of the free world?
