A teenage boy,Sam Hunter, is hiding in his school after a dangerous disease spread,turning the local people into living monsters,also known as "Walkers." A different group of boys are also seeking refuge in the school as well,but they are older, stronger,and meaner than Sam. After blocking all of the windows and doorways,Sam tries to befriend the boys,but is pushed away. Supplies begin to run dangerously low,and fights are beginning to break out between all boys. They all just need to wait until help arrives...if it ever will. Sam can't help but wonder if help will actually arrive. With all his might, he holds on to live,but just barely.
