"The Forlorn" is a feature film based on the real events of the 1846 Donner Party tragedy. The Donner Party was a group of California-bound American settlers caught up in the western expansion of the 1840s. After becoming snowbound in the Sierra Nevada during the winter of 1846-1847, a number of the trapped settlers joined together in a final effort to reach California and organize a rescue party.

"This historical incident is a fascinating portion of American history and rich material for an actor to sink one's teeth into. The pun is intended," says Glover.

In addition to Glover, "The Forlorn" features Clayne Crawford ("Wristcutters: A Love Story"), and a strong supporting cast that includes Mark Boone Junior ("Thirty Days of Night"), Jamie Allman ("The Notebook"), Catherine Black ("American Psycho"), and Christian Kane ("Friday Night Lights").
