Poseidon Adventure meets Night of the Dead. When the world’s largest cruise ship is over-run by thousands of shambling, groping, synthetically reanimated corpses, celebrity Vlogger Rozo and her Dad Ammy, the Chief Engineer, must help the last survivors off the ship – which is made all the more hellish when it capsizes, as these particular flesh-eaters can swim like demented sharks.

After receiving a BA in English Literature from Simon Fraser University in 2004, Rodrigo Juatco went on to ghost write for Filipino-Canadian newsprint on his spare time while working as a warehouse Supervisor for the next ten years. Movies, however, have always been a passion of his. And so he began the arduous task of mastering the craft of screenwriting. He has since placed in the Quarter finals in the Page Awards International on two separate occasions. Though writing is now a hobby, Rodrigo hopes to one day pursue his passion on a full time basis.
