Abstract

A screenplay, "Patient Zero" is about Lillian contracting a zombie-like virus and the efforts of two people who love her, Jenna and Bill, to save her. The movie explores the binary opposites of heterosexual and homosexual love and how Jenna and Bill show their love for Lillian. In addition the impact of sexual abuse and rape are shown and the zombie transformation works as a metaphor for sexual abuse.
