A retired commando attempts to rescue the daughter of a prominent industrialist from a city under quarantine, and uses a small army of militarized robots to battle a rampaging army of the living dead. A deadly virus has swept through a major city, creation legions of flesh-eating zombies as the military races to sequester the population. Meanwhile, an influential business tycoon's daughter has gone missing in the danger zone. Determined to get her out at all costs, he hires formidable mercenary Max Gatling (Dolph Lundgren) to track her down, and escape before the city is incinerated. With just one day to accomplish his mission, Gatling quickly enters the city and locates the girl. Just when it starts to look like the duo will be devoured by the rampaging legions of the living-dead, however, the sudden appearance of some high-powered robots gives Gatling the idea for an escape plan that's sure to work - if they can just pull it off before the entire city goes up in flames.
