After Life Lessons is an emotional journey of grief and tentative romance in a world infested with zombies.

A year after a devastating epidemic swept the world, Emily and her 6-year old son Song are struggling South in search of more hospitable climates. A snowstorm traps them in an abandoned gas station, where starving and desperate, they encounter Aaron, an Army medic on a mission of his own, who offers them a ride to ease the journey.

The road is a long and dangerous place to travel, but it's not only the deadly infected who pose a threat. The newly enforced proximity to another human being awakens feelings, long numbed and forgotten in a world of such abject scarcity. And that's when the pain really starts to hit, when places thought lost prickle back to life, when hope opens them up to a new dose of devastation and heartbreak.

Eventually, they will have to fight not just for survival, but for a future together, or their broken world will swallow them whole.
