Synopsis by Mark Deming
A man in the middle of nowhere finds his past catching up with him in this independent thriller. Jeremy Stanton (Dean Cain) is a businessman who is driving from Santa Barbara, CA, to his new home in a small town in Nevada. However, as Stanton makes his way through the desert, he loses his bearings, and before long, thanks to a few road closings, detours, out-of-date map listings, and faulty directions from an auto-club operator, he hasn't the foggiest notion of where he is. But when an angry man with a gun begins pursuing Stanton, it becomes evident that there's more to his story than just a few wrong turns. Also featuring Danny Trejo and Ashley Scott, Lost marked the directorial debut of screenwriter Darren Lemke.
