Il y a 50 ans, dans la communauté de Seabrook, un accident est survenu à la centrale de Seabrook qui a provoqué une explosion qui a fait de la moitié de la population de Seabrook des zombies mangeurs de cerveaux. Ceux qui n'ont pas été affectés ont construit un mur qui sépare le territoire zombie, baptisé Zombietown, du reste de Seabrook. Plus tard, le gouvernement a conçu des bracelets électroniques pour les zombies, appelés Z-Bands, qui fournissent des impulsions électromagnétiques apaisantes pour empêcher les zombies d'avoir faim de cerveaux.

With her Swift snowboarding teammate/boyfriend, Nick Swift (Mike Manning), who is also the son of team coach Sebastian Swift (Jeffrey Nordling), she trains as a part of the Swift Team to win the "Fire and Ice" snowboarding competition. A year ago, a viral video branding the famous, legendary snowboarder Will Cloud (Luke Benward) as an "epic failure" caused Will to end his snowboarding career. He wiped out attempting a move he created in Fire and Ice, called the Cloud 9, and almost died, allowing the Swifts to take the win. Now, Will works at his family's dog-kennel with his mom, Andrea (Amy Farrington). During a pre-Fire and Ice party for the Swifts, Sebastian Swift tells Nick that he needs to do whatever it takes to win Fire and Ice.

Although Eddie is affectionate, his behavior often frustrates Tru because she feels as if she is unable to reason with him.
