Ellenor Shepherd, Lost and Found
Sunday, October 13, 2pm
Andre Washington, the top male opera singer in the world, is walking home from a performance when he hears a child's screams emerging from a brownstone consumed by flames. Hesitating only briefly, he runs into the burning building and rescues eleven-year-old Elizabeth. Unfortunately, in the process of saving a young life, Andre is badly burned.
Eight weeks later, Andre slowly emerges from a medically-induced coma, unaware that Elizabeth has been searching for him. While recovering and fighting for his life, Andre remains in hiding from both his former existence as a singer and from those who are lauding him a hero. As the years pass, Andre undergoes surgeries that eventually repair his face. His doctor tells him of a radical new surgery called facial transplantation. Through courage, determination, and support from others, Andre begins to build a new life and career with a different name and face. But when a figure from his past reemerges, everything changes for Andre once again as he receives a beautiful, unexpected gift with the power to transform his future.
Lost and Found is a tale of love, loss, and an unsung hero as he attempts to find a new path after a devastating fire robs him of everything he has ever known.
