About the Film:
Two convicts in an orbital prison are doing what they usually do, which is to say, not much.
Suddenly, two panicked guards armed to the teeth burst into their cell.
The guards tell them that the orbital prison has just been invaded by blood-thirsty zombie-type creatures.
If they want to survive, their only solution is to eject their cell and return to Earth.
But when the ejection order is entered into the computer, it refuses it. The cell, designed for two occupants only, now holds four people.
There can only be two lucky winners… and there’s not much time to pick them.
