Liberian refugee Samuel Reayah and his family have been separated for five years. They live in uncertainty waiting for a family reunion. While Sam and his younger daughter Ruth continue their lives in a refugee camp in Ghana, his wife Decontee and older daughter Joyce have started a new life in the USA.
The documentary explores the idea of home. Samâ€™s family had a home in Liberia, but they had to give it up. They were forced to build homes elsewhere. They built a home in Ghana, they built a home in the United States. They built homes together and separate from each other. But which home does the heart want?
