What happens when the undead return to life? In a world ravaged for years by a plague that turned the infected into zombie-like cannibals, a cure has been at last found. The wrenching process of reintegrating the survivors back into society begins, but the ex-zombies are hated, feared and distrusted by the general population. Among the formerly afflicted, known as the Cured, is Senan (Sam Keeley), a sensitive young man haunted by the memory of the horrific acts he committed while infected. Welcomed back into the family of his widowed sister-in-law (Ellen Page, Flatliners, Juno), whose husband was killed by zombies, and her young son, Senan obeys the government’s restrictive regulations and attempts to rebuild his life—but is society ready to forgive him and those like him? Or will fear and prejudice once again tear the world apart? Pulsing with provocative parallels to our troubled times, The Cured is a smart, scary and hauntingly human tale of guilt and redemption. Written and directed by David Freyne, making his promising feature debut.
