It effectively engages with history, with the 1997–1998 Asian financial crisis lending an emotional element at the beginning.

In the drama's post-failed science experiment scenario, a local high school is invaded by zombies, and the captive kids must fight to survive. They are forced to use the equipment around the school to defend themselves in the middle of a conflict because they have n access to food or water, and the government has cut off all communication. If they don't, they will join the infected.
