John is a hardworking man that has focused more on his career than his family. A devastating event leads him back to his hometown, where he will come face to face with his choices and their impact on his family. This heartfelt story demonstrates the incredible power of prayer and how God’s love can overcome all.
“Coming Home” is an inspirational film about a spiritual journey. John has lost his way. As a boy, he longed for his workaholic (and alcoholic) dad to be home with him at Christmastime. But sometime later the physical abuse he suffered became too much. Now, years later, John is a married, successful doctor with “miracle hands” that is in popular demand. He didn’t return his father’s phone calls from the last three years; now it is too late. His dad has died. John returns home and has a lot of things in his life in need of repair, including his marriage due to the wife he has ignored because of his work, as well as his children and his brother. His brother James remained in the old hometown to run his father’s western store, and John has put pressure on him to pay back a loan he gave him. John and James also have an adopted brother, Matt, a priest, who is trying to reach the spiritual light that once was in John’s heart. When John views a videotape his father left him before he died, the hard shell begins to soften.
