R is having a no-life crisisâ€”he is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he is a little different from his fellow Dead. He may occasionally eat people, but heâ€™d rather be riding abandoned airport escalators, listening to Sinatra in the cozy 747 he calls home, or collecting souvenirs from the ruins of civilization. And then he meets a girl. First as his captive, then his reluctant house guest, Julie is a blast of living color in Râ€™s gray landscape, and something inside him begins to bloom. He doesnâ€™t want to eat this girlâ€”although she looks deliciousâ€”he wants to protect her. But their unlikely bond will cause ripples they canâ€™t imagine, and their hopeless world wonâ€™t change without a fight.
