A horror comedy set in Philadelphia about an unknown virus spreading in a poor neighborhood. The infected victims crave water and that means going after the residents of the densely packed neighborhood in gruesome and ridiculous ways. When the military is brought in to contain the situation, things potentially improve for the outside world, but not for the characters.
