An infectious zombie outbreak begins to sweep the world but the indigenous inhabitants of a Mi'gmaq reserve are strangely immune.

Two young men in a jail cell have to assist their police captors when the town residents become increasingly violent. Humans and dogs alike are turning into snarling, violent beasts. When a person is bitten, it is only a matter of time before the disease takes hold of them. Except for the those with Mig'maq heritage. Soon the infectious plague has spread across the world and a gated community keeps the zombies at bay. Why is it that the plague does not affect those of Mi'gmaq descent? Should they offer help to those outsiders who are susceptible to the disease?

BLOOD QUANTUM is sure to be a late-night cult hit and is the follow-up feature by writer/director Jeff Barnaby whose previous film RHYMES FOR YOUNG GHOULS screened at CIFF in 2013.
