Breaking News! War vet with PTSD shoots among the crowd!… Maybe he saw enemies, monsters… It’s about real life. It’s about F.O.E. This is not another shootout zombie flick. It’s about the inner journey of a person on the run from his demons, real or not, from an unknown enemy, who may attack anywhere, anytime.
