Homesick Overview

In the summer of 1958, 36-year-old Vera Miller swallows her pride and reluctantly returns to her father’s home in her hometown of Connaught, Saskatchewan. She is a single mother who has been working as a cashier in Toronto, and her 12-year-old son needs to get away from bad influences. Vera ran away at 19 to join the army and has not been home since. She has never forgiven her father for forcing her to quit high school and care for her brother and the housekeeping after her mother died. Her father is glad to have them, but they struggle to reconcile the past and their differences.
