A group of friends in their 40s come together the year after helping a friend die with dignity. They didn’t do a great job at it, sure, but they did their best, each of them getting through the pain in the ways they always have: sex, drugs and social justice organizing. Now, as they convene in the small town they grew up in to scatter the ashes and say one final good-bye, they discover grief about the past and fear about the future have changed them.
Think The Breakfast Club thirty years later meets The Big Chill, only more queer and diverse and funny.
Shot in Sonoma County, where writer/ director Angie Powers grew up (her childhood home is a major location), Lost in the Middle celebrates the hidden diversity of small-town life and the longevity of the friendships she nurtured here.
