Brain Dead follows 17-year-old Logan Day in the midst of Generation Z’s newest fad: DIY Lobotomization. All Logan wants is to get into med school, become a neurologist, and lead a successful life. When his anxiety-ridden best friend, Miles, lobotomizes himself with a defibrillator, Logan's world is turned upside down. Miles eventually returns to school, and he’s totally unrecognizable. “Mopey Miles” is now as happy and care free as a four-year-old on a sugar high... and the rest of the school starts to pick up on that. A domino effect ignites, and before we know it 90% of the student body are mindless, but joyous zombies- free of responsibility. As college applications, sleep deprivation, and peer pressure take their toll on our ambitious protagonist, that lobotomy starts to appear more and more appetizing...
