‘Home’ is an innovative, contemporary adaptation of the Biblical story; The Prodigal Son, featuring an entire lead cast of deaf actors/actresses.
Jacob, fresh out of school and dissatisfied with life, asks his father, a prosperous car workshop owner, for his inheritance in order to start a business venture in Johannesburg, South Africa. Upon arrival, he meets up with an old friend, Teboho, and soon finds himself caught up in a world of gambling, bars and women. When his father becomes increasingly worried, having not heard from Jacob, he sends Benjamin, his older brother, to look for him. While Benjamin tries hard to track him down, Jacob learns valuable lessons with regards to the importance of family, true friendship, and forgiveness.
