Hunger Pang

A zombie woman is cast out of her hunting group when she's caught stealing more than her share of food. When she comes upon an abandoned human baby (in a world where food is incredibly scarce), she fights her urges and seizes the opportunity to offer the 7-month old to her former zombie pack as proof of her willingness to share. But her surprising bond with the child risks her plan-- and her appetite.

written & directed by Kiersten Houser

Cast

With a background in the dramatic arts, Kiersten Houser will portray the part of "Zombie Woman," and her son, Boone Houser, will play the part of "baby." 

Because the story deals with themes of parenthood and love, their portrayal of these characters deepens the personal relationship of filmmaker and film, as well as parent and child (on and off screen).
