Storyline

Long Journey Home is a true story about two families who were united in marriage and divided by war. It's about love found and lost; about ordinary people caught up in massive continent-wide events and life's unexpected turn of events. The film is narrated by Betty's daughter Jutta, and uses a drama-documentary format to tell its story. In 1938, Betty Adams, a young English woman leaves the family home, against her father's advice, and marries Rudolf Jebens, her German sweetheart. She moves to Germany just before the Second World War. However, Rudolf is conscripted into the army and in June 1941 is sent to Russia. In the meantime, Betty's brother joins the RAF and takes part in bombing raids over Germany until he is shot down and killed in 1942. Rudolf too dies, and she struggles on, raising her two children with the help and support of her German neighbours and family, until at the war's end she escapes the advancing Red Army, and finally makes her way back home to her parents home ...
