Story


Writer/Director Noah Buschel's third feature, "The Missing Person", stars Michael Shannon as John Rosow, a private detective hired to tail a man, Harold Fullmer, on a train from Chicago to Los Angeles. Rosow gradually uncovers Harold's identity as a missing person; one of the thousands presumed dead after the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.

Persuaded by a large reward, Rosow is charged with bringing Harold back to his wife in New York City against his will. Ultimately Rosow must confront whether the decision to return Harold to a life that no longer exists is the right one. "The Missing Person" co-stars Academy Award Nominee Amy Ryan and features a strong supporting cast including Margaret Colin, Linda Emond, Yul Vazquez and John Ventimiglia.
