Shedding light on the riveting human elements of this point in time, LOST ON EARTH explores a dimension beyond the nightly news footage. Abstract events around the globe are humanized by people like Herbert Puchwein, a detective from Vienna who rescues a busload of orphans pinned down in Sarajevo, and Senada Suljic, whose family, driven from their Bosnian home, pray that their paths will cross again someday.

And a college student who books the ultimate adventure tour - joining the war to recapture the land that exiled him when he was an infant.
