Sid has returned from the dead, only to face a whole new way of "living" -- dealing with his past, friends and family, while simultaneously making sense of the events unfolding around him, including a growing awareness of his appetite for living flesh.
In what has become a tradition in most of my scripts (starting right here), I have a character named "Shannon" within the story.
In SID'S APPLE, "Shannon" is Sid's pushy apartment neighbor.
