Along the way they meet a mysterious Black woman. Together, these four men and one woman encounter racism, sexism, internal conflicts, and finally redemption as they discover their common humanity and their internal ability to conquer the societal ills that effect them all.

I first saw this film my rookie year up north in college. A lot was happening back then and this film helped put many things in perspective. Visually I remember the mural and its impact on the characters. The four main characters were like a breath of fresh air, real people whom the writer cared about. Follow Me Home is a unique and honest portrayal of people living in these united states. Unique in the sense that the characters were of color yet were not total stereotypes. Yeah there was the cholo but we saw more than that. We felt his pains and inner as well as outer struggles with society.
This film was and continues to be a major influence in my decision to write and hopefully one day make movies like it. A beautiful piece of work that I hope to one day catch again on the big screen. When that time comes I will bring along my family to experience.
I recommend this to anyone serious about life and love.
