A zombie-bitten father tries to save his infant daughter in this bittersweet short film

So you've been bitten by a zombie. So long, conscious brain activity, hello craving for human meat. But the protagonist of the short film Cargo has bigger problems than his impending demise: he has to find a way to save his infant daughter, even if he has to die first to do it.

Directed by Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke, Cargo was a finalist in Tropfest Australia 2013. It's also a rather clever take on zombie genre tropes, with a story that isn't about the survival of self, but the survival of another.

Color me impressed. I'm tearing up, and I'm not even a father. I can only imagine how the fathers are dealing with this right now.
