Journey Home

Journey Home is a documentary film about two sisters who try to find out exactly what their father did as a freedom fighter during the Hungarian revolution of 1956. The story unfolds as the two women take their father’s ashes from the U.S. to Hungary to fulfill his dying request to be buried in his native land, a place to which he never returned after fleeing in 1956. The journey veers off course when the sisters realize that their father’s role in Hungary’s uprising was never really questioned – and never really documented.
