Plot

WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD

When news reports start appearing of a zombie outbreak in Ireland, B's racist father thinks it's a joke-- but even if it isn't, he figures, it's ok to lose a few Irish.
B doesn't fully buy into Dad's racism, but figures it's easier to go along with it than to risk the fights and abuse that will surely follow sticking up for Muslims, blacks, or immigrants. And when dodging his fists doesn't work, B doesn't hesitate to take the piss out of kids at school with a few slaps or cruel remarks. B later meets up with some mates and pursues a normal school life, one a school trip to the museum, on the trip B recuses an Indian baby from bizarre mutants with purple skin and scabby tongues, a feat that all but B's dad admire due to the childs heritage.

After a rough weekend B just wants to get though the day, but then zombies attack B's school. B is forced on a mad dash through the serpentine corridors, after serval of people in B's group get devoured by zombies her dad comes to save the day, when they need more time, her dad orders here to toss her black friend Tyler to the zombies, something she does but instantly regrets to the point of running back into the school, and as she runs though she runs into Tyler again, he rips out her heart and she dies.
