See our a living statue entertainer hero is caught up in the middle of a zombie outbreak. He freezes in fear whilst everyone around him dies at the hands of the attacking zombie horde. Left alone in a large open square surrounded on all sides with only his unique ability to save him, he must work out a way to survive.
