Play Dead 2011

The Meza Brothers

A zombie apocalypse unites a ragtag pack of dogs in the ruined streets of Miami. Immune to the epidemic, they must stick together to survive in the midst of ferocious undead and human survivors in this unauthorized sequel to "Homeward Bound." Sit. Stay. Play dead...

Andres and Diego Meza Valdes created this film for Borscht 7
