Synopsis:
a "revenant" is one who returns after a long absence; or death. In the fallout of a pandemic, Karen and Gary live on with a pair of "zombies"-once their wife and husband-chained up in the cellar. Unable to let go and the past's ghosts ever-present, Karen and Gary find themselves with two kinds of revenants: their spouses who have re-animated from death; and the versions of themselves they used to be-before they were married, before they denied each other.
