The Homecoming PartyBook - 2010
It is Christmas Eve. Sitting on the steps of the village church, a father and son exchange stories. The father speaks of life as an emigrant from Italy, in perpetual limbo between his departure and return home. The son tells of an idyllic childhood spent in a vivid, enchanting land marred only by his father's long absences. Each hides an awful secret concerning the fate of a mysterious man whose affair with the boy's older sister changed their lives. On this night of nights, as the long-buried details seep through each man's story, a shared truth will finally emerge.
