MAGGIE is a precocious young woman growing up with all the typical teen angst and stress that girls her age face. But the difference is Maggie is infected with a virus, and is slowly turning into a zombie. Society exists as a post-zombie pandemic world where those infected are treated like patients and the zombies are taken care of. Maggie is holed up in her remote house with her father WADE who is looking after her. He believes he can save her from the virus, restoring her to good health. But as the virus advances and slowly consumes Maggie’s body, tensions run high and their father/daughter relationship is put to the test. This is a poignant tale of a father’s struggle for his infected daughter, putting a humanizing dramatic twist on the zombie genre. In the end, Maggie is faced with a harrowing decision to protect her father from the disease or protect his heart.
Maggie is set for release in the UK on July 17th.
