Home focuses on a group of youngsters and the adults that surround them. Both find it difficult to communicate and to understand each other’s closed-off world. 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 gets to know 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 direct their daily lives more then ever.
