“The Way Back Home” was filmed in Sanford and Orlando and was produced by mainly Central Florida crew. It was featured in a showcase for local films in the 2006 Florida Film Festival.
A year after his wife’s death and nearly a decade since his last visit home, successful New York lawyer Spencer Krane (Michael Houston King) returns home to care for his ailing grandmother in director Reza S. Badiyi’s character-driven family drama. Jo McMillan (Julie Harris) has suffered a massive stroke, and now her grandson Spencer has returned home to care for the woman who raised him.
As Spencer reconnects with such important people from his childhood as his grandmother’s lifelong friend Maude (Ruby Dee) and his childhood sweetheart Sarah Marshall (Tessie Santiago), he gradually begins to realize just how far he has strayed from the values that he had been taught as a young boy. Spencer has experienced a fair share of tragedy over the years, and now as he arrives in the old Florida town of Sanford he may finally find the peace that allows him to come to terms with the past, and look toward the future with a newfound sense of hope.
