    Mourning the loss of a fallen colleague, Aurore (Claude Perron, Chrysalis, Cortex (COL•COA 2008), Amélie), Ouessem (Jean-Pierre Martins, La Vie en Rose (COL•COA 2007), Empire of the Wolves) and their team are determined to take their revenge on the criminals who killed him. But when they assault the apartment building where the gangsters are hiding, they are attacked by a horde of zombies. Understanding that the only way to survive is to become allies, the police officers fight side by side with Jimenez (Aurélien Recoing, Counter Investigation (COL•COA 2008) 13 Tzameti), Adewale (Eriq Ebouaney, Transporter 3, Hitman) and their gang to kill the deadly creatures. Using the zombie genre as a vessel, The Horde is a political & social film about violence, injustice and racism in contemporary society
