Luv comes across a free-spirited girl named Luna, who casually invites them to an exclusive underground rave party happening on a remote island.

The party is headed by a macho Indo-Russian mafioso named Boris. But something is not quite right on this island as all of a sudden, the party-goers are accosted by zombies! No one knows where these zombies came from and what’s their purpose. And who is Boris really, and why has this cold-hearted drug-dealing don come to save their lives? The mystery needs to be unravelled before it’s too late.
