In the future, NASA's first yearlong mission to Mars mysteriously loses contact with Earth. When the desperate crew of the Space Shuttle Aldrin arrives home, there are no marching bands, fanfares, or joyous reunions to greet them, only a lonely trek across a barren world.
"Grab the Popcorn...."
The crew of the space shuttle Aldrin has returned from a year in space, only to discover that the lush planet they left behind has been decimated by a viral pandemic. After learning about the possible existence of a band of survivors in the Midwest, the astronauts set off on a cross-country trek, only to find themselves beset by countless hordes of the walking dead. In Little Rock, a young teacher and an old woman struggle to build a fortified community within the chain-linked confines of an abandoned high school.
Commander Mike Hanson and the crew of the Space Shuttle Aldrin have fought their way across the zombie-infested wasteland that was once America. Finally within sight of their destination - a fortified high school in Little Rock - they find that the last mile of their journey might be the longest. The city is teeming with swarms of the living dead and the secure community they hoped to find is surrounded by a swarm of the ravenous dead.
