TAGLINE: Sometimes the unexpected is just around the corner.
LOGLINE: A grieving postman agrees to help a new friend connect with his teenage son, but begins to befriend the kid, believing he'd make a better father figure.
There are three types of people in this world, the plains people, the mountains people and the forests people, which type are you?
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. It pushes him to take on the mission of helping a newfound friend, John, reconnect with his estranged son, Sam. Craving a father-son relationship, having never had one himself, Harvey starts to believe that he would be a better father figure for Sam than John could ever be. 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 this 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. If there is a main connecting theme within the film, it would be the role of the past: its influence on the present and the road it paves for the future.
