In the fall of 2005, after surviving the first year and a half of the end of the world, there is very little left for the remaining people of apocalyptic Canada. Salvage teams gather what supplies remain, and survivors are brought in more and more rarely.

Across the frozen landscape of a Canadian winter they chase the trail of clues, hoping to find the cause of the undead plague that has ravaged the world, and if there is a possible cure.
