THE LOST ONE

Director:  Doug Burch

Screenwriter:  Doug Burch

Genre:  Drama

 

When Michael is called to Los Angeles to do a "job",  he assumes it's just going to be business as usual.  But from the very beginning nothing goes right for him,  no matter how much his best buddy Jerry tries to gloss it over.  

 

As the situation around him spins out of control, he tries desperately to stay calm - stay focused and complete his assignment,  but deep down the longing,  the loss,  and the pain, start to surface.  As the long supressed demon, rears its ugly head,  he can't deny is own needs and loss of hope.  

 

THE LOST ONE deals with the aching pain one can carry for years and the thick skin it takes to not feel, while seeing all the lost souls around you, desperate to grab hold of love in any way they can.

 

Shot in the City of Angels, with a rawness and edge of a classic noir film,

DANNY SHAW is an Afghan war vet.   He saw plenty of weird shit over there and did some of it, too.            

 

He survived three tours of duty -- at least physically.  

 

Back stateside, Danny’s drifted along, directionless.   Currently he’s a driver-bodyguard for the ladies of LOLLIPOP DELUXE, an “escort” service .   Every night, Danny drives the ladies down the dark streets of the city, never knowing how the next “party” will turn out. 

 

He’s hasn’t given up hope.  He’s still looking for some meaning in his life, as he desperately tries to cope with his demons and his past.  A past that some people won’t let him forget.  This isn’t the life Danny envisioned for himself, but it’ll do for now.

 

MIDNIGHT MOVER is unique in that it combines live action and graphic novel artwork to create a mesmerizing film noir look at the sometimes terrifying, sometimes hysterical, dark underbelly of life.
