With the onset of a mutant apocalypse, the world has become a destroyed wasteland. Their friends and neighbors in their sleepy Pacific Northwest community have been transformed into hideous, bloodthirsty zombies!

They are going to start a rebel JV soccer team whose mission is to avoid victory at any cost, setting out to secretly undermine the jock culture of the school. But as the team's losing formula becomes increasingly successful at attracting fans and attention, Jack and his teammates are winning in ways they never expected-and don't know how to handle.
