During their teen years they cling to each other for love and security but as they grow older their lives take different paths.

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.

This film is a "10"
3 July 2003 | by (Sunnyvale, CA) – See all my reviews

I saw "The Road Home" more than a year ago, and the film, its themes, and its content, have stayed with me. This movie moved me deeply, and there are times I still think of it fondly. It had moments of intense humor, and moments of deep sadness. The emotional roller-coaster this movie put me on was one very few films can achieve, let alone sustain throughout the length of the movie. "The Road Home" is a movie that should be seen by masses. It is an exceptional film, one that deserves to be shown to the public at large. Drew Johnson has the markings of a major-league film-maker and with this movie he hits one out of the park!
