A huge comet is hurtling towards the Earth at high speed and, according to calculations, should burn up before entering the Earth's atmosphere. But the forecasts are not correct - a first fragment of the comet does not fall into the sea, but instead destroys entire Florida. Rumors that only a select group of people can be brought to safety are already making the rounds when engineer John Garrity (Gerard Butler) is ordered by the U.S. government to go immediately to a military base with his wife Allison (Morena Baccarin) and son Nathan (Roger Dale Floyd). From there they are to be flown out to a place where survival is said to be possible: Greenland. But the journey there becomes a gauntlet and the family is torn apart in the chaos of desperately fleeing people and marauding hordes. How will they ever find each other again, and where is it even safe to go?

Then he receives a strange offer: He is supposed to return to the quarantined peninsula with a group of mercenaries and find a truck there and secure the cargo - and that in the middle of Seoul, where it is teeming with zombies! He accepts the offer and shortly after finds himself in the place where the apocalypse once began. The mission turns out to be easier than expected, and soon they find the target. But then Jung-seok discovers that they are not alone. The mysterious militia unit 631, together with the zombies, turns everything upside down...

Kill or be killed - that's the only way out of a board game that a group of teenagers find at a party and foolishly play!

Otherwise they all die!

“The highlight of the app: you can continue watching a programme at home, right where you got interrupted on the train. Also other features such as profiles getting aligned, or the PIN for parental control.”
