The Story


Lost To Love is a romantic drama about two people who are flawed according to certain of society’s standards, and who are reaching out for the love each inwardly knows that life holds for them. But their greatest fears are triggered when they get closest to their greatest passion.

There are internal and external obstacles preventing an easy path to love for these misanthropic, mismatched, misplaced misfits on Prozac. But they share a unique and funny vision of the world, and this mutually cockeyed perspective allows them to keep their sense of humor.

With its help they might make it together, albeit with certain complications.
