    A zombie battle of the sexes

    Vince is handling his divorce badly.

    He's depressed. Gone to pieces. But his mates aren't giving up on him. Struggling with their own mid-life troubles, they drag him off for a boy's weekend in the country. When they arrive in Moodley, a small town in the middle of nowhere, they discover that all the women have turned into man-eating frenzied Zombirds.

    Forced to hide out in the empty shops when their minibus driver also goes crazy, they're cut off and helpless. And clueless.

    Getting back to boy scout basics, the boys utilise anything and everything at their disposal to fight off the infected women. They attempt to distract the Zombirds with radio-controlled cars and fight back with water pistols filled with nitro fluid. Their most ingenious plan - dressing up in women's clothes and sneaking away under their noses - works for about twenty seconds. One violent street fight later, and everyone is holed up in a CHURCH, waiting for daybreak.

    This turns out to be their unluckiest plan yet. Below the church, the underground crypt is wall to wall with dead meat. This is where the town's men have ended up, as FOOD. The crypt is a NEST.

    Escaping on to the rooftops from a church packed with rabid freaks, the last survivors end up back on the minibus. But something has happened to Vince. The boyish behavior required to beat the odds here has kicked his mid-life crisis into high gear. He guns the minibus engine and takes the boys OFF ROAD, navigating a bumpy, scenic route to freedom.

    But when Vince's walkie-talkie crackles to life with the voice of a friend they all thought had been killed, they know they can't leave. The bus screeches to a halt and the boys head back into hell for the final confrontation….
