The short film follows the path of an employee at the New England Aquarium dressed as a penguin that had become a zombie during the zombie apocalypse. He walks across long stretches of land, including a city street and a forest, and ends up in a suburban neighborhood where he is supposedly shot by someone who is surviving there.

The short film was generally well received by viewers and was one of Film School Rejects' "11 Best Short Films of 2011".

Cyriaque Lamar of io9 said that "it will definitely make you sympathize with the ambulating vitality-deprived." Joe Berkowitz of Fast Company described it as an "oddly affecting take on a familiar genre."
