Lost in the Never Woods takes something we see as familiar and offers us a distorted version of that world.
It’s been years since Wendy Darling and her brothers went missing in the woods near their home. Wendy returned, with no memory of what happened in the time she was away, and since then she experiences crippling anxiety whenever she thinks of the woods.
A fairly regular teen, Wendy volunteers at the local hospital. She loves telling stories to the kids, and her stories often feature the irrepressible Peter Pan and tales of his daring. Recently she’s been obsessively drawing images of a young boy, Peter, and a tree.
On her way home one night Wendy almost runs over a boy. There’s an immediate attraction on her part…and when it’s clear that he knows her name, Wendy begins to think that perhaps Peter Pan is not the boy of her dreams. He exists, and he says he needs her help.
Children are going missing and Peter needs Wendy.
What follows is strange.
Slowly, Wendy and Peter risk everything in their quest to find the missing children and restore order to Peter’s Neverland.
This is a coming of age story with a pinch of magic. For those who dream…
