In post apocalyptic America, a deadly virus rages, and zombies are born...government is gone, basic necessities are a luxury, and people are not to be trusted -

For Cass, a former alcoholic, nothing can be worse than the reality she faces now - her baby gone, zombies eating human flesh, and the last two months missing from her memory. All she knows is she has to find Ruthie, her daughter, by any means necessary. Scarred from a zombie attack, yet not infected, Cass is an anomaly in an upside-down world.

Cass returns to the last place she remembers, only to find that a "new" government is in town - and things have really changed. Her daughter has been sent away for her safety, and the new government only wants to exploit her mutated DNA. Smoke, her only ally, braves the outside with her to find her daughter.

Along the way, they discover that the new government is a power hungry group, intent on ruling the area through force, and that the Convent, the supposedly safe place her daughter was sent, is really run by religious zealots, with their own hidden agenda. As Smoke and Cass deal with zombies, corrupt officials, fear of discovery, and the breakdown of society, Cass has to decide if she can trust Smoke, and save her daughter in enough time.

Part Alice from "Resident Evil," and reminiscent of Carla Buckley's "The Things That Keep Us Here," Aftertime is a fresh, paranormal twister of a ride.
