Storyline

Five peoples' fates become entwined when a Marine returns on furlough from Iraq. With no one to greet him at the airport, he sets out for the wild Northwest coast. His journey intersects with his distant father, his step-mother, a bitter veteran, and the stewardess from his connection home. As each strays further from his everyday life and a body washes up on the beach, their fates become bound inextricably together. A newfound sense of belonging is found and, finally, there is something to come back to; now the soldier has everything to lose. Written by Anonymous

a terrific "zero" budget film
1 January 2009 | by armanddiabSee all my reviews

I saw "Homeland" at the Zero Film Festival in early December of 2008 in downtown Los Angeles. I was truly surprised to see it there, because the production value of the film and the quality of the film-making is top notch - no way was this movie made for super cheap.

Easily the best feature film I saw at that festival. The actors are all terrific, and the writing and direction is better than some stuff that I see on TV. And although we've had plenty of films recently about American soldiers returning home from Iraq, this film is one of the better ones - right up there with "In the Valley of Elah".

Based on this film, I look forward to seeing the next project from this director. And does anyone know if this film has been released, and if so, how can I get a copy of it?
