When a documentary filmmaker puts out a call for Takers to journey to a fallen enclave out in The Loss, The Missionaries answer! They’ll have to infiltrate Payton-Stokes Academy, a private high school designed during the paranoid days of bomb threats and active shooters, to get the footage the client wants. During The Crash, the school was an ideal spot to set up an enclave: good sight lines, tight security, backup power supply. However, because of the Romero Effect, the students and their families who took refuge there succumbed to a Vector outbreak, and the entire settlement collapsed. Whistler, Deacon and UNIX set off believing that they’re walking into an abattoir of roaming Casualties, but what they find at Payton-Stokes is far more disturbing. Can they wrap production on time and under budget, or will their simple shoot turn into a living nightmare?
