Lost in Seattle is the story of William Brenner. An educated male in his mid-fifties, Willie retains a dry sense of humor and a sharp perception of reality and hope, after being downsized out of a lucrative job and losing his home, marriage and lifestyle. Relocated to a small apartment in a rundown neighborhood south of Seattle, Willie struggles to survive, yet retains his self-respect. Lost is the fictional equivalent of Nickel and Dimed, painted against a post 9/11 contemporary background and a government less trusted every day.
