A low budget zombie film is being shot in an abandoned factory as well as it can be with constant arguments between the crew and actors. However the factory was used for human experiments in WW2, and real zombies turn up to turn make belief into the truth. The director sees a big opportunity and carries on shooting seeking to make his perfect film.

Very much an indie low budget film but a very clever and very funny film. One of those films where you have to watch it through to get it. In its way the film is not about zombies but about film making itself, and the pain and pressure of so doing. I am a sucker for films within films.
