Guy Boy Man, spiritual leader and pirate, who may have inadvertently caused a global financial crisis in the process of becoming fantastically wealthy, is the only living human who can see zombies everywhere, in control of everything. In a series of online sermons, Guy tries to rally others to his cause: to end human suffering. Recognizing the enormity of that task, he decides, in the short run, to bring down the principal of his high school, whom he blames for its deplorable condition. Distracting him from his mission is a cute pink-hair girl named Baby Doll15 who has a unicorn that follows her everywhere, and a ninja detective named Sweetie Honey. As a detective, Sweetie Honey is assigned to investigate Guy Boy Man's alleged theft of the Pope's hat — the tall golden one. In his dual role as a ninja, Sweetie Honey is tasked with derailing Guy Boy Man's plan to end human suffering... or kill him, if necessary.
Ninja Versus Pirate Featuring Zombies is Napoleon Dynamite meets The Matrix.
