When the sun got tired of the humans it decided to hide and never rise again. The dar- kness awoke the dead from their graves. A zombie kid called Gloomy and a mortal girl called Nena fall in love and immerse in a deep connection that not even the most powerful man in town can destroy.
It’s 1983 on a cold night in Woodland City. Being a zombie is against the law. The undead have been around for almost a decade now, but peaceful coexistence with the “normal” people continues to fail. They hide in the forest, away from the dange- rous zombie hunters. Nights are calm and quiet, but Gloomy still tries to stay out of sight. Hunters are a real threat, but this zombie is hiding from something else as well…Truth is, he doesn’t feel too comfortable around others of hiskind. But really, Gloomy not completely like other zombies. He has access to things we don’t see or understand. Nature knows he’s special.
