Missing Allen is a real-life detective film: a filmmaker sets off in search of his cameraman and friend who disappeared without a trace after shooting a film with him in autumn 1995. The investigation begins in Chicago's art scene but soon leaves this sheltered world, following a trail to cultural backwater, to sects and people who believe in UFOs: to Waco, Texas and Oklahoma City, to the traumatic sites of recent American history.
