“Two friends find a working iPhone during the zombie apocalypse, but their longing to post pictures on Instagram soon turns them against each other.”

The film stars Cecilie Svendsen, Patrick Finzi who also will feature in Martin Sofiedal’s upcoming feature film Benjamin Falck & the Ghost Dagger. The cinematography is by Magnus Owe whose work includes shooting and editing the popular Norwegian talk show Karl Johan, as well as several other high profile projects.
