Introduction

It’s a fairly common when someone says to follow your dreams or to go out there and live your dreams. Another common statement would be, choose a job you love and you will never have to work another day in your life. These sayings, arguably do hold true, to a fair degree. But can the same be said, for when that love becomes a deep obsession?

Short Plot

The Lost City of Z (TLCOZ) depicts the life of an explorer by the name of Percy Harrison Fawcett. While exploring the Amazon rainforest, Fawcett uncovered the remains of ancient ruins. From the existence of these ruins, Fawcett persuaded himself into believing in the former existence of an Ancient city. This envisioned city, he gave the name ‘Z’, similar to that of an eager parent naming their unborn child. This vision, however, not only became a source of great passion but also his life’s greatest obsession.

Percy once served as a former military lieutenant, in the British army during 1886. He is married to Nina Fawcett, whom he met during his time stationed away from England. During the long period of his life he spent as an explorer, Percy lead many expeditions into the Amazon rainforest. This was at the time uncharted territory as is documented on European maps. Percy became famous for his “invincibility” while he led expeditions into the Amazon. He never fell victim to unfortunate shortcomings such as sickness. Though the same couldn’t be said for his entourage. One of his expedition members became ill and almost went insane. It was never made clear if Percy was truly “invincible” or just very fortunate.

Fueled by his belief that Amazon’s current living situation doesn’t negate the possibility of their civilization once residing in a glorious city. Percy continued to explore the rainforest. His years of research truly provided the world with a greater understanding of the Amazon. Throughout the years Percy’s determination to find his envisioned ‘Z’ never wavered. Not even in old age, when Percy formed a three-man team of Jack, his son’s friend Raleigh and himself. This was during the year of 1925 and the three mysteriously disappeared and were never found.
