Cooties is a horror comedy about a virus outbreak in an Illinois elementary school. The virus causes its victims to turn into zombie like creatures. The contamination happens when a student eats a chicken nugget that is covered in black splotches. The student quickly starts to experience numerous symptoms but others just assume that she is sick. After she attacks some fellow classmates, they realize she has been infected by something. Students all over the school succumb to the virus and the teachers begin to realize that the virus must not affect adults as it does children. They realize that they need to barricade themselves away from all the infected children. Their only hope lies in the fact that the parents of the students will eventually come to pick them up because school will let out. The parents start to arrive for the students but the teachers lose hope once they see that a student viciously attacks and ends up killing one of the parents. They go back to barricading themselves from the infected children. They find a child who does not seem to be infected so they hold them under quarantine just to be sure. After figuring that the child is most likely not infected since they are not showing any symptoms they let them go free. One of the teachers figures out that the only reason the children turned feral is because they are prepubescent.
