Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Produced for the Disney Cable TV service, Back Home stars one of the great names of Disney's golden years, Hayley Mills. Mills plays the mother of a British teenager (Hayley Carr), evacuated to the US during World War II. When hostilities cease, everyone looks forward to a tender reunion with the young girl. But the road back is not a smooth one, and there's many a tearful moment before a happy ending can even be considered. Filmed on location in England, Back Home is an unabashed three-handkerchief production.
