Original concept
Logline: 
Three survivors take refuge on a water tower as cannibalism overcomes the residents of a small town. It seems the new gluten-free diet is all the rage.
Synopsis/Details: 

A small town Doctor joins two teenagers atop a water tower when friends and neighbors begin to exhibit cannibalistic tendencies below. The last bulletin from the CDC stated that the cause was from genetically modified wheat products. Can our three survivors outlast the infected? Or is the fate of our heroes Kismet?

This original concept (NOT a zombie story) can work as a short or be completed as a feature. Interested? It's Kismet if you've read this and feel drawn to its potential! Let's option and make it a reality!
