In 1939, 12-year-old Donn Fendler was lost for 9 days in the woods of Maine near Mount Katahdin. His story of survival inspired the nation and continues to inspire through his book Lost on a Mountain in Maine. The documentary Finding Donn Fendler follows Donn's story through the lens of young filmmakers Derek Desmond and Ryan Cook as they try to turn Donn's adventure into a narrative feature film.
