Film phase: Production
When you’ve grown up all over the world, can you ever really go home again? Home Again poses questions about citizenship, faith, politics, and identity from the perspective of American missionary kids who’ve grown up overseas. Though these kids have lived under the rule of dictators and coped in countries where clean water is difficult to come by, the hardest task can be finding a place to call home — in every sense of the word.
