Barney - "Zombie" lead role

Barney Russel is a 27-year-old coder. He is a confident man, who some would describe as strange, often struggling to acknowledge social queues. He grew up in a broken home, with parents who split when he was six years old. To help him cope with the difficult divorce, Barney became obsessed with zombie films, keeping a case with several classic movies with him when he moved between each parent’s house. He now lives his life as a zombie, ignoring what all others seem to think of him.
