The South Forsaken

Sarah is a nurse at the Geelong hospital, going about her Boxing Day shift while her family recovers at home after indulging in the usual Christmas feasting. But when a wild-eyed patient is admitted that afternoon, she soon discovers a new virus taking root in the area.

Not wasting any time, Sarah and her family have to bug out before they too are taken out by the infected hordes amassing in the town. The virus is spreading rapidly and beers will have to be set aside in favour of running for their lives.

The South Forsaken is one family’s story in this zombie apocalyptic tale with an Aussie twist!
