Home Again

Starting over is not for beginners.


Home Again
Recently separated from her husband, a young mother decides to start over by moving back to her home-town of Los Angeles with her two young daughters. During a night out on her 40th birthday, she meets three aspiring film-makers who happen to be in need of a place to live. She agrees to let the guys stay in her guest house temporarily, but the arrangement ends up unfolding in unexpected ways. Her unlikely new family and new romance comes to a crashing halt when her ex-husband shows up, suitcase in hand.

Leandra Engelbrecht quote iconIt's like a perfectly wrapped gift when once opened you're disappointed because the inside doesn't live up to the outside.
