We All Fall Down

Synopsis: Todd, a haunted young man, struggles to protect the innocence of Benny, his mute kid brother, in a post apocalyptic world where all the adults turned to zombies by a recessive gene. The gene continues to activate in the remaining feral kids as they reach adulthood, causing a short and vicious life span.

- Hear it change, Todd,

the change is coming.

- I know.

You don't have to remind me.

- What are you gonna

do about it, Todd?

- I'm taking him to the farm.

- Why? You need

to go to a group.

- I'm not taking him to a group.

- He needs people,

he's just a kid...

- stop!

How can you say that after

what happened last time?

- It's what he wants.

- No.

People are dangerous.

That's the only truth now.

We're going to the farm.

- Is that what's best for him?

- He doesn't know

what's best for...


Go where I can see you.

- Todd.

Don't blame yourself, Todd.


Time to go.

Last one.

Make it last.

We're going into the town

we saw the other day.

You ready?

Let's go.


You can have 'em.


We don't have room for toys.

You know that.

- Shut up and get

in the shadows.

- You have three

seconds before...

- quiet.

Over there.

Come here.

- Damn it, Benny.

- Benny, no!


What have I told

you about fighting?


They're bigger and

stronger than you.

You know that.

Thanks for watching my back.

You know what to do.

- Well, I suppose a

thanks is in order.

Although, you know, if

you weren't so loud.

I haven't seen you

around here before.

- It's a big world.

- Yeah, well, I

know most drifters.

- Yeah, well, you don't know me.

And I don't know you.

Let's keep it that way.

- You know there's a shop

that you can trade...

- yeah, I know of it.

- I thought you weren't

from around here?

- I never said that.

- Hey.

My kill, my spoils.

- Let's go.

More can show up any second.

- Hey.

For your arm. Now we're even.

You know we could

use someone like you.

We have food and water.

- No.

- We're working on a cure.

- There is no cure.

There's just this.

- It's safe.

And there's other kids

for the little guy.

- I said no.

- Do you really think

that's what's best for him?

- Don't tell me how

to raise my brother.

- Don't ever touch me.

Go ahead. Kill me.

It doesn't change anything.

You might be a hard ass but

it doesn't mean that he is.

Go ahead. Do it. Please.

You're what? 17, 18.

How much longer do you

think you have, hmm?

Where does that live him?

- Go to hell.

We're leaving.

- There's a place for you.

For the both of you.

We're just on the edge of town.

- Don't care.

- Yeah, well, you should.

- Well, I don't.

Hey, here's a map.

I circled our camp.

They'll know I sent you.

- Go.

This place'll work.


What are you drawing?

Looks pretty good.

You're getting better.


I know that place sounds good.


But it's not for us.

Who do you trust?


Todd, your brother.

Say it.

Who do you trust?

Say it!


Why don't you ever talk?!

You know I could change

into a zombie any day now.

Are you even gonna say good-bye?


Alright. Go on,

hit me, tough guy.

Get up.

You don't need to be a killer

but you're gonna learn

to defend yourself.

Come on.

Come on.

Get up!



Oh sh*t. Hey, hey, hey.

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Are you okay?

All better?

Can I get a hug?

You know, you were just born

so you probably wouldn't

remember the farm.

It was something else.

Green fields.

A river that was nice

and cool in the summer.

A big tree with a swing on it.

We had wild animals.

We'd have chickens and

we'd gather their eggs

every single day.

You know the best part?

No zombies.

No people.

Just you and me.

I know.


You know the drill.

We can't stay here.

We need to keep moving.


I know.

I'm thirsty too.

We'll find some water

in the morning. Alright?

Get some sleep.

- Hey, hey, hey, hey,
