Train to Busan, the first of two zombie movies derived from a South Korean hit comedy, follows a group of train passengers as they fight for their lives during a zombie apocalypse. Touching on themes of class difference and the consequences of a highly centralized economy, Train to Busan subverts the genre, drawing inspiration from South Korea's recent mass overdose of methamphetamine in an effort to diagnose the country's drug problem.
Set during a zombie apocalypse in South Korea, the story follows Cheol-min, an ordinary man who at first joins forces with a group of government soldiers. As they fight to survive, they encounter their new, savage enemies.
Hye-sun is a former sex worker who ends up joining a group of travelers on a high-speed train as they flee the nearby zombie apocalypse. She acts as the group's paramedic and becomes romantically involved with Jang-ho, a survivor who is a bus driver in the past. Meanwhile, the people who are left behind in the zombie-occupied Tokyo station must join forces to escape the city.
