Lost & Found is seven interconnecting stories set in and around a lost and found office of an Irish train station, all inspired by actual incidents.
Daniel (writer/director Liam O Mochain) tries desperately to hold onto his newly acquired job in the lost & found office.
Eddie (Liam Carney) spends most days in the train station begging. Every day he has a different story, which one is his?
Gabriel (Seamus Hughes) plans to surprise his girlfriend by proposing up in the air, but airport security have other plans for him.
Grandmother (Barbara Adair) asks her grandson to retrieve a mysterious bracelet that she buried in the garden of her childhood home in Poland.
Moya (Norma Sheahan) visits a funeral home and signs the condolence book, not realising the consequences.
Cranky pub owner Paudge (Donncha Crowley) keeps redecorating his bar hoping to attract customers, but no matter how many grand openings, the locals stay away.
Sile (Aoibhinn Garrihy) has set a date for her wedding, and not having a groom won’t stop her. (c) Hyper Films
Anthology pic Lost & Found is a charmer….One can hope for a sequel set in an airport terminal.

Anthology films are a tricky proposition, but Liam O Mochain’s charming Lost & Found gets the trick right. Perhaps because it’s written and directed by one person, it feels organic in a way so many portmanteaus do not. .

The Irish humor and setting make for a lovely time with the film as we get a droll glimpse of daily life in Ireland, and things that are lost and found again..

Irish indie Lost & Found will make you smile….the characters…are no smarter or luckier than they need to be, and their travails and coincidences manage to be just comic and human enough to make us happy for the time we spend together..
