Storyline

Growing up in Las Vegas, Danny and Melissa meet at age eight and are destined to become life long friends. During their teen years they cling to each other for love and security but as they grow older their lives take different paths. Danny fills the void in his heart with his passion and love for America's favorite pastime. While Melissa, filled with the insecurities of her youth, struggles to find the strength to pursue her childhood dreams. Although apart, their lives are forever connected. Like a glorious seven game world series, "The Road Home" is a story of imperishable hope, courage, faith, love and coming home. Written by Anonymous

A wonderful romance that touches the heart.
31 March 2003 | by (Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

I have been to Sundance, Toronto, Venice, to name a few, and of all the independent films that I have seen (and I have seen lots!) I have yet to see a film with such heart. It's not a new story, but it captures the feeling of a first love in a way that is hard to not be moved. Although not the esoteric film that we usually see in the independent circuit, it is so well done that I looked beyond its minor flaws. Lovely film.
