Description:Zombie film set in the early sixties in rural Manitoba. Twelve-year-old Nicholas is obsessed with his friend Bobby, whose feelings for Nicholas are less clear. When Nicholas begins to see images of his absent father, he fears that the curious figure wants him to distance himself from Bobby. Taking a chance, Nicholas kisses Bobby.
