Synopsis:
The Lost World tells the tale of a 20-Year High School Reunion attended by only six people. This is not just any six people  these are six individuals who claim to have hated High School the most. Brought together 20 years later by a common friend, the six former classmates find themselves face-to-face in a discount hotel ballroom for one fateful night of laughs, fights, tears, and soul-searching; as they drag their skeletons to the light in a bid to exorcise the personal demons that have haunted them since they last patrolled those hallowed halls of High School. Children of the Eighties now all grown up; theyre The Breakfast Club thrust into the Facebook generation  leading them to pine for a simpler time; an age where if you wanted to connect with someone; you reached out and touched them; not texted, tweeted or Skyped. Their world is truly The Lost World.
