HOMECOMING is a film about the dramatisation of memory. Based on a short story, it tells about a woman returning to her native city from abroad and visiting the places that evoke the past.

The film deals with a separation and a loss of home caused by the turmoil of war. It makes use of flashbacks of three key episodes. The first is about a Polish family gathered around a radio and listening to Chamberlain's declaration of war on Germany. The second is of the father dressed in military uniform saying farewell to his wife and child. The third is about the expulsion from their apartment by the invading Germans.
