Two families, four languages, one house. Home puts its characters into a unique and challenging conflict across language and history and asks difficult questions about the illusion of ownership and the definition of "home". Home is the story of an aging man, Toomas, exiled from his homeland, who through repatriation efforts, can now return and reclaim his home and property. However, fifty-five years have passed and the home has been inhabited by three women, who, caught in the shifting tides of a new world of globalization, find themselves threatened with expulsion when Toomas and his son, Wendall, return to reclaim the land and house. The women who have lived in this adopted country and in this house for so long, feel suddenly rootless. Home explores our deep connection to home, not just as place, but memory and language, our sense of identity
