Disappearances tells the story of a young man mentally disconnected. Early one morning he’s awoken from a restless sleep by a plane crash outside his apartment window. Rushing down to the scene, the young man is unable to find anyone – no people, no rescue workers, no survivors. He is alone. Everyone he loves, everyone else on the planet as far as he knows, has disappeared.
The young man sets off on a journey through the deserted landscape of America and his own memories that taxes him both physically and mentally. After months of searching, the young man finally finds one man, a grizzled old guide named Frank. It is with Frank, sitting by a fireside in an Arizona canyon, that the true test begins.
Frank’s task is to listen to the young man’s story, help him discover the secrets behind the disappearance of everyone he loves, and most importantly, to reconnect the young man with the rest of the human race. But before the young man can do that, he needs to learn the most important lessons about himself, his father, and how to move forward with his life.
