A young father sets off on an excavation mission to hunt down his mistakenly-trashed hard-drive, loaded up with 7,800 Bitcoin he mined in the very early days of its existence. The journey overtakes his life, as his obsession of what could be grows larger than his reality of what is...
Lost Drive is a story about blind hope, selfishness, character-devolution and the broken reality of "The American Dream."The story follows Charlie, a 30-something computer engineer, husband and father, who has his heart set on a modern “treasure hunt” for a Bitcoin Wallet he accidentally threw away years prior. This wallet contains a collection of 7,800 Bitcoin that he mined between 2009 and 2010, when this idea of “internet money” was little more than a humorous concept. Today, his drive is worth about $300,000,000 and the thought of it haunts him.. It fills him with regret for what could have been. Now, Charlie is set on dedicating himself: Every ounce of time, energy and passion he has, to hunting down this long-missing drive full of life-changing riches.The story follows Charlie's mission. This journey, fueled by hope, to achieve the impossible. To overcome the seemingly-endless trials... The MADNESS that is this insane quest of discovery. We follow Charlie as our underdog hero begging for someone to believe in him, through to the point of chaos: Empty, exhausting days stretching into weeks... Days that take a mental toll on Charlie and his idea of what life is meant to be. The greed, obsessiveness and blind, stubborn hope spreads through to Charlie's world: His job, his family, his life as he knows it. Charlie becomes consumed by this idea of what could be, growing ignorant to what already is, and this is his downfall...

Chris K. Daniels is a filmmaker originally from Boston, Massachusetts, now based out of Los Angeles. He’s best known for his stylized storytelling through the short-form.Chris tends to focus his work on offbeat, unique twists on reality. He seeks to bring forth interesting questions in the form of his narrative work, no matter the genre.
For Chris, it’s more about the way the story is told and the value of every second, rather than the broader, more baseline picture. This has resulted in a very wide, compelling body of work that’s allowed Chris to establish his voice in a very particular and exciting way.
Chris has been creating films for the majority of his life. From the day he made his very first YouTube channel in fourth grade, to the day he landed his first distribution deal in college, he’s held onto his passion. Always trying to evolve and become a better version of himself.
All-in-all, Chris just loves to create. He’s a young man passionate about making movies that mean something. He hopes to tell these stories for the rest of his life
