Rather than being defined as a physical place, "home" in this film is defined as a state of being with the one closest to you. This sentiment is echoed in the opening lines: "Home. Let me come home. Home is wherever I'm with you" (lyrics from the famous song by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros). With this in mind, the aim of the film is to observe one's internal struggle and reconciliation with the fact that he is no longer at "home." Shot and edited in its entirety on iPhone. Run time is approximately 14 minutes and 57 seconds.
