Days Gone Bye

The Walking DeadSheriff’s Deputy Rick Grimes awakens from a coma, alone in the hospital, weeks after the human race has been all but eliminated for an unknown reason, with the dead coming alive as mindless carnivores with only one instinct: eat the living. He manages to escape the hospital overrun with the dead and finds that, other than living dead, the entire city is empty and his wife and son are not home. He meets Morgan and his son Duane who are hiding out in a neighbor’s house, who fill Rick in on what little is known about the disaster. Rick leaves to find his family. But there is no sanctuary in Atlanta which has been overwhelmed with the walking dead and Rick is trapped.
