Story

A living statue entertainer is caught up in the middle of a zombie outbreak. He freezes in fear whilst everyone around him flees or dies at the hands of the attacking zombie horde. Left alone in a large open square surrounded on all sides with only his ability to stay very still to save him, he must work out a way to survive.
