He goes to her wake and sees his two children Raffy and Kristine again. While Dante is eager to make amends with them, Raffy does not want him back into his life. When an accident forces Raffy to take Dante into his house, Dante learns how his own failure as a father has made an impact on how his son acts as the head of his family. In his effort to make things right between himself and Raffy, Dante develops a bond with Raffy's wife Gayle and his grandkids, Jake and Tinka. Dante also rediscovers his love for music that Raffy's son is also passionate about. With his growing relationship with Raffy's family, Dante begins to glimpse some hope for a second chance. For how long can Raffy harden his heart? Will Dante finally get his second chance at happiness? Written by Jewel Castro

Forgiveness is the central theme
6 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

A Jouney Home may be preachy at times and too religious for it's own sake, but it thugs the heart in many occasions. Fogiveness is the central theme of this movie. Soliman Cruz is seeking forgiveness not only from his son but also from his God and most of all, from himself. Acting chops from Cruz brings this movie forward, the rest of the supporting cast is so-so. There are a lot of dramatic moments. The best ones are the silent pain of Cruz, seeing his past mistakes. The religious theme might discourage others from finishing the movie though. Watch this if you are feeling the blues.

I didn't view this in the movie, but the TV viewing is enough to say that its melodramatic theme will be good viewing some days, and other days, well, you might want to skip it entirely.
