Storyline

Michael Bates and Brian Moore are friends despite being different in personality. Michael is straightforward and is harboring anger issues which he doesn't even realize. Brian is a spiritualist, always on the look out for the good in people. Both are having a difficult time in their respective lives. Michael seems to be more committed to his live-in girlfriend than she is to him. And Brian is fired from his job as a mechanic because he over-analyzes the customers rather than do his work. To get away and have some fun, the two decide to take a weekend fishing trip to the lake. Once there, they find what looks to be a unnamed grave marker in the middle of the forest. With only a key close to the grave with the stamp "PUM ZACH" as a possible clue, Brian talks a reluctant Michael into finding out who owned the key and is therefore the probable person buried. Based on information from a local, Brian and Michael decide to drive from their home in San Francisco to the Nevada desert to ... Written by Huggo

Escape on an adventure!
30 June 1999 | by bngeemst-2See all my reviews

I got a chance to view this movie at the Los Angeles Film Festival. At the first The odd name was what had caught my eye, but soon after the movie started, The great cast of characters had me totally caught up in this odd adventure. It was great to be caught up in the story line and I soon forgot that I was in a movie theater. Much too quickly ,almost 2 hours had past and I walked out of the theater feeling great. Michael Rohl was great at putting on film what I believe Colin Cunningham wanted to say when he wrote "Zacharia". It would be a shame for more people not to be able to see this wonderful film , and get a chance to "Escape" into a heartwarming adventure.
