LOGLINE: A grieving postman agrees to help a new friend connect with his teenage son, but begins to befriend the kid, believing he would make a better father figure.
Man Lost World tells the tale of Harvey: a 55-year-old, emotionally distorted introvert working in the dead letter department of the post office. The unexpected death of his mother shocks him out of his mundane routine and it pushes him to take on the mission of helping a new found friend, John, connect with his son, Sam. Craving a father-son relationship, having never had one himself, Harvey starts to befriend Sam, believing that he would make a better father figure for Sam than John ever could.
Obsessed with this, he fails to see the potential wrong in his actions and after years of violating strangers by reading their lost mail, Harvey embarks on a twisted game of falsifying reality. Man Lost World is more than a father-son reconciliation story: it is a film about self-discovery through our circumstances and the people we choose to surround ourselves with, and the role of our past; its influence on the present and the road it paves for the future.

Goldrush Entertainment has produced award winning films such as Beautiful Boy starring Maria Bello and Michael Sheen, and the action-thriller Standoff starring Laurence Fishburne and Thomas Jane.
