Coming Home is not always what you expect it to be. This film is an intimate portrait of brothers who have taken different roads. The project is an exercise in interpretive storytelling and collaboration. It was shot on location in central Missouri and western Nebraska. It features artists from both states. There is limited dialogue. The images and music are rich with emotion. Everyone may not experience the story in the same way. The audience is invited to participate by reaching into their own lives and imaginations.
