Through a series of tragic events, a middle aged man grows to suspect the negative impulses plaguing his mind may not be his own.
To me a film is successful if it keeps the viewer’s attention for the entire running time and leads them to form an opinion on the central characters of the story. VANISHED is supposed to mesmerize the viewer right away and not let go until the very end.
It was especially important to me to find the best possible cast. The leading actress must evoke empathy while the extreme circumstance the other characters are in also needed to be clear.
