Series Synopsis

Marlow is a zombie story inspired by Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness". It's about one man's journey into the darkness of his soul, and his discovery that perhaps we're all zombies. Marlow is an ex-Marine caught in a dilemma impossible to solve: commit atrocious acts for a global corporation in order to receive medicine that keeps him from reverting to a zombie state, or walk away and suffer the fate of becoming some terrible creature. Struggling with his fears of his affliction and the monster he might become, Marlow abandoned his wife and young daughter, losing his dignity and freedom as he chose a nihilistic life. It is only during this journey told in the story that Marlow realizes that perhaps by avoiding suffering he has become like the zombies he so fears to become and that the only way out is to suffer his fate and become one. "Marlow is a zombie tale about suffering and its part in our humanity, and, in that sense, not about zombies at all.
