LOST PLACE 3D Project HAARP: In 1982, at the peak of the Cold War, the U.S. military based in West Germany began experimenting with high-intensity electromagnetic waves. Not long after, 28 fatal incidents were recorded in the surrounding area. The experi- ments were cancelled and all facilities were shut down. Until today … Four high-school kids embark on a geocaching trip, a GPS scavenger hunt into the vast forest regions of southwestern Germany. They are led deep into a former military restricted area. At a seemingly abandoned camp ground, they run into a mysterious stranger wearing a radiation suit and who warns them about weather anomalies in this part of the woods. Can they trust him? Tension grows within the group, but not only is their friendship put to the test, an invisible, even more dangerous threat is already spreading among them. Trying to find a way out, they stumble upon a secret radio tower facility, and what started out as an adventure turns into a fight for survival … LOST PLACE is Germany’s first mystery thriller shot in first-rate stereoscopic 3D images and the first German feature film to be natively mixed and presented in Dolby® Atmos™ .
