Brief synopsis in English: LOST IN THE BEWILDERNESS is a modern-day Greek myth – a documentary about the filmmaker's cousin Lucas, kidnapped at age five from his native Greece, and found on the eve of his sixteenth birthday in the U.S. This story of international parental abduction, filmed for over twenty-five years, chronicles Lucas’s journey of growth and self-discovery, and culminates with a surprise ending.  

Brief synopsis in Greek: Το LOST IN THE BEWILDERNESS είναι μια μοντέρνα εκδοχή αρχαιοελληνικού μύθου - ένα ντοκιμαντέρ για τον ξάδερφο της σκηνοθέτιδας, τον Λουκά, ο οποίος απήχθει σε ηλικία 5 ετών από την Ελλάδα, και βρέθηκε λίγο πριν τα 16α γενέθλιά του στις ΗΠΑ. Πρόκειται για εξιστόρηση μιας γονικής απαγωγής με διεθνείς διαστάσεις, γυρισμένη κατά τη διάρκεια είκοσι πέντε χρόνων. Καταγράφει την πορεία του Λουκά από την ενηλικίωση και ωρίμανση του, και κορυφώνεται με μια έκπληξη στο τέλος.
