Zombie is a bass playing, vodka-swigging lost soul who can't make it in the army, as a roofer or as a morgue gurney-pusher. The demise of each short-lived occupation is humorous, but Zombie's is baleful look and apathetic demeanour seem to be barely covering deep sadness, we know not why. Along the way, Zombie has several encounters with The Ghost Train, the grim reapers of rock, a band that ‘has many gigs, but nobody has ever heard it play’. He drifts with the flow of life, between Istanbul and Helsinki, but loses track of reality.

Directed by Mika Kaurismäki, the film is a tragicomedy about Zombi, a young musician trying to find a place for himself in a band and in the world.
