Story intro

In a world overtaken by a virus that turns people into zombies within 48 hours, husband and wife, Andy and Kay, and their one-year-old daughter, Rosie, are living safely on a houseboat in rural Australia. They discuss when they should go to shore to collect food rations when they spot another family. Andy attempts to make contact, but the adult male flashes his gun at them. Andy spots an abandoned sailboat and proceeds to investigate it. He retrieves food, and, on his return, reassures Kay the sailboat he ransacked was safe; Kay decides to return by herself to try and collect more supplies, but is attacked by a zombie emerging from a cupboard. Meanwhile, an Aboriginal girl, Thoomi, attempts to protect her infected father, Willie, by feeding him wildlife and keeping him locked up while her tribe eliminates the undead. In doing so, she distances herself from her mother, who is searching frantically for her. Andy discovers Kay in the bathroom of the houseboat, trying to restrain the bloodflow from a bite on her knee. They attempt to find a hospital, but are distracted by Willie, who is in the middle of the road, and they crash their car into a tree, impaling Kay. Andy faints from shock, leaving Rosie strapped in her seat. He comes to hours later and tries to wake Kay, but realizes she has already converted, as evidenced by pus around her eyes and mouth. He takes Rosie out of the car, but is bitten by his wife during the process. He spots the man that had caused their crash, but realizing he is a zombie, prepares to defend himself. Thoomi dissuades Andy from hurting her father and leads him away.
