We Get the Monsters We Deserve
Disturbing news spreads to the remote town of Ferbane via online viral videos that Dublin has been hit by an undead threat, and danger is on its way. Unable to discern fake news from real, the midlands heads toward civil war, and the local police are at odds as to what to do about it.
Having been a product of a generation that is used to having all manner of creature comforts and black mirror one-touch solutions, Robbie Whelan is an idealist to a fault, and lives in a world where he has it all, but nothing is ever good enough. His sister, Liv, is an unsuccessful Internet celebrity wannabe, and their cousins, Jay and Chi, are stoner layabouts living off the government’s teat.
When the police are targeted by fringe groups taking the chaos as a sign of revolution, they turn to the public for assistance. However, the Millennial curse of apathy and entitlement leaves the law-enforcement powerless, and the townsfolk wide open to invasion… and not from whom they were expecting. Will self-seeking Robbie step out of his comfort zone when one of the distressed officers turns out to be his estranged wife?
