COMING HOME is an affectionate documentary charting the journeys of five Irish emigrants spread across four continents as they pursue a common dream of returning to live out their remaining days in Ireland.
A film by Cathal Kenna, COMING HOME explores each emigrant’s personal voyage, tracing emigration stories from the 50’s to more recent tales sparked by the exodus following the Global Financial Crisis of 2008. The film reflects on such key events as parting from loved ones in Ireland, the thrill of arriving in new unexplored worlds, coping with homesickness and the challenge of being separated from family and the familiar. COMING HOME captures the joys and sorrows in the life of an Irish emigrant.
The film is a love letter to a vision of Ireland, its people, its rugged landscape and its world renowned charm.
