The purpose of this short film is to provide fans and investors an idea of what Donn's amazing adventure would look like as a full-length feature film. We are still in the development phase of the narrative feature, but are very excited to provide this first look of what's to come.
Based on the best selling book by the same name, LOST ON A MOUNTAIN IN MAINE is a triumphant true story of survival, driven by the search for 12-year-old Donn Fendler, who becomes dangerously lost on Mt. Katahdin, Maine's tallest and most rugged peak.
Set in 1939, authorities launch what is still the largest search-and-rescue operation in state history. The nine-day adventure is not only told through the eyes of the missing youth, but through his father’s involvement in the search as the locals rally in support of finding the young boy. News of the story immediately goes national as thousands of mothers send letters of prayer to Donn's family. The nation looks on as the days go by and hope for the boy's safe return begins to fade.
