Here are some of the highlights of the meeting!

Lucky is an 18 year-old with a record and is in debt. He pulls a final job which provides the means for clearing his accounts. A path to the straight and narrow is open before him, but a vivacious neighbor talks him out of his money. Faced with missing a court-ordered restitution payment, he decides to pull one final job. Things go terribly wrong and he comes face with a zombie outbreak. Drawing upon his skill, courage, and luck, he struggles to keep his streak alive.

Enjoy reading.

That concludes this wrap up for KaCSFFS July meeting. Hope to see you at the next one.
