The citizens of Prosperous Lake, New Mexico, a quaint neighborly agricultural community, are preparing for the town’s honor of hosting the County’s 100th Agricultural Fair.
As the town prepares for the event, a nefarious U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, Brooke Meadows, has her own plan for the sleepy township, making them the unknowing test site for an untested super fertilizer called Vegantuan XL.
When the tanker truck transporting the volatile supplement crashes, it’s contents, in the form of a gas, settles over Prosperous Lake’s cemetery. Meadows immediately scrambles her allies to cover-up the incident but no one could prepare for the collateral effects of the crash. It doesn’t take long for the dead to return to life with an insatiable appetite for…vegetables. The Vegantuan XL reanimated corpses rise from their dirt naps not for a taste of flesh or brain but for the taste of fruits and Romaine.
Now a town, with the biggest county fair of the century, is under siege and overwhelmed, Sheriff Elwood Beechum and the town leaders struggle to find a solution to save their prized gourds and vegetation.
Their only salvation may come from out-of-towner Wille a.k.a. Vinny “The Shovel” Zapparelli, a Philly Mob rat now in witness protection. An all out war ensues between the Vegan Zombies and townsfolk where the stakes are high. The lovelorn transient has fallen for the town’s sweetheart Linder Hammersmith and quickly realizes to win her heart he must shed his lone wolf persona and reluctantly join them in fighting for their town. Will the former mob enforcer’s street savvy past be enough to help? Prosperous Lake citizens rise up to save the County Fair before the orchards and fields are stained with that life giving ruby red liquid…tomato juice of course.
