Synopsis: Even though he has been dead for over a decade, buried on the Greek island he left behind as a teenager, John remains a painful mystery to his former wife, children, and grandson. Upon rediscovering his home movies, they begin to reconcile the troubled man they knew with the person he might have been. A film about memory, loss, and being caught between two homes.
