Synopsis

Director

„Home“ focuses on a group of youngsters and the adults who surround them. Both find it difficult to communicate and to understand each other’s closed-off worlds. Into this community of two struggling generations arrives 17-year-old Kevin. He starts an apprenticeship at his aunt’s store and moves in with her and her family. Kevin quickly adapts to his new home and gets along with his cousin Sammy. Through Sammy’s circle of friends he meets John. Soon we discover John lives an unbearable situation with his mother and Kevin feels the urge to help his new friend. One evening fate intervenes and questions of betrayal, trust and loyalty start to impact on their daily lives more than ever.
