From J.J. Abrams, the creator of Alias, and Damon Lindelof (Crossing
Jordan) comes an action-packed adventure that will bring out the
very best and the very worst in the people who are lost.
Out of the blackness, the first thing Jack (Matthew Fox, Party
of Five) senses is pain. Then burning sun. A Bamboo forest. Smoke.
Screams. With a rush comes the horrible awareness that the plane
he was on tore apart in mid-air and crashed on a Pacific island.
From there it's a blur, as his doctor's instinct kicks in: people
need his help.
Stripped of everything, the 48 survivors scavenge what they can
from the plane for their survival. Some panic. Some pin their
hopes on rescue. A few find inner strength they never knew they
had � like Kate (Evangeline Lilly), who, with no medical training,
suddenly finds herself suturing the doctor's wounds. Hurley (Jorge
Garcia) � a man with a warm sense of humor despite the desperate
situation � does his best to keep his cool as he helps those around
him to survive. Charlie (Dominic Monaghan) is a faded rock star
who harbors a painful secret. Sayid (Naveen Andrews) is a Middle
Eastern man who must wrestle with the racial profiling directed
at him by some of his fellow survivors. Jin (Daniel Dae Kim) and
Sun (Yunjin Kim) are a Korean couple whose traditions, values
and language are foreign and thus causes much to get lost in the
translation. Sawyer (Josh Holloway) has an air of danger surrounding
him, and his intense sense of mistrust for everyone around him
could prove to be fatal to his fellow castaways. Michael (Harold
Perrineau) has just gained custody of his nine-year-old son, Walt
(Malcolm David Kelley), after the death of his ex-wife � they
are a father and son who don't even know each other. Locke (Terry
O'Quinn) is a mysterious man who keeps to himself, and who harbors
a deeper connection to the island than any of the others. And
self-centered Shannon (Maggie Grace) � who actually gives herself
a pedicure amid the chaos � and her estranged controlling brother,
Boone (Ian Somerhalder) � constantly bicker and must learn to
get along if they are to survive.
The band of friends, family, enemies and strangers must work together
against the cruel weather and harsh terrain if they want to stay
alive. But the island holds many secrets, including the intense
howls of the mysterious creatures stalking the jungle, which fill
them all with fear. Fortunately, thanks to the calm leadership
of quick-thinking Jack and level-headed Kate, they have hope.
But even heroes have secrets, as the survivors will come to learn.
