A group of innocent strangers are forced to survive together after an extraterrestrial invasion creates a deadly species in the food chain.

Pepperwood is a sci fi thriller that centers around a small group of strangers thrown together after a brief extraterrestrial visit sends the Earth into a downward spiral. These survivors, each with their own background and story, struggle to live in a lifeless wasteland infested with desperate individuals who will stop at nothing for power and control.
Imbedded within the madness is an alien disease that has created a deadly new species in our food chain. The "Campers" as they call them exist for one purpose: to devour. When one of the survivors gets infected with the alien virus, they're faced with unavoidable decisions. Can they save him? Should they kill him? Whatever they do, they must act fast. He’s “turning” more quickly than they realize.
Meanwhile... A band of ruthless thugs arrives at their door, just as another swarm of campers closes in on their compound, a safe haven they call Pepperwood.

With shady characters afoot and biological terrors on the hunt, the group must bond together to make tough decisions for themselves and each other.
