Nurtured in war and turmoil, raised in fragile democracies, the first post-Communist generation born in Central and Eastern Europe is now poised to play a leading role in the world. In Lost and Found, six young filmmakers from the region present their personal views on the subject of generation and the many changes that sometimes separate them from their parents generation. There are moving tributes to traditional values in a world of rapid technological change (The Ritual) and to the pragmatic, can-do spirit of the elder generation (Serbia-Montenegro). There is hope, in the story of two Bosnian girls on either side of a town separated by an ethnic and religious chasm, in that of two Hungarian siblings who confront their tormented past after their mothers death, and in the touching tale of a Romanian girl torn between her love for her mother and her pet turkey! Linking each of these little stories is an animated short from Estonia, which celebrates life itself. In Lost and Found, a generation takes a look at itself and confidently asserts its position in a new Europe
