In an alternative Britain, zombies are being rehabilitated into society by the government. These sufferers of Partially Deceased Syndrome who can be saved are given flesh-tinted make-up and contact lenses to mask their situation though the vigilante Human Volunteer Force is anxious to do away with them. Young Kieren Walker,one of the sufferers,returns home to Roarton for rehabilitation,whilst his sister Jem is a member of the HVF led by fanatical Bill Macy and hate preacher Oddie. Even driving Kieren home his loving parents Steve and Sue risk an encounter with another vigilante Ken though friendly nurse Shirley shows them how to administer medication to keep their boy 'normal' whilst Shirley's son Philip is a fervent HVF devotee anxious to prove himself. Kieren himself decides to join the Undead Liberation Army but Oddie and Macy are onto him and it is Jem who saves him by diverting them towards another target. Written by
