Plot synopsis
A young reporter is meeting his cameraman to cover a political demonstration in a small Russian town when it suddenly starts to snow. In July (which apparently is very odd,even for Russia). The snow brings with it an outbreak of zombies who immediately devour most of the locals. As one reporter teams up with a beautiful streetwise girl, his partner falls in with her father – the local crime boss. Armed with an arsenal of weapons left over from the Cold War and assisted by an axewielding Orthadox priest, these survivors face off against the army of the undead. Russia’s first zombie film brings us a new twist on the undead genre – gangsters vs zombies!
