Synopsis by Mark Deming
A troubled young man looking for his best friend is looking for help from the family he left behind in this drama for the family. Ricky Horvath (Jeffrey Licon) is a teenager who broke ties with his family and lives on the streets. Ricky's constant companion is his dog Buddy, and when his pet is stolen by a gang of ruthless dognappers, Ricky is desperate to get Buddy back. Finding Buddy proves to be more difficult than Ricky imagined, and in time he realizes he must turn for help to a man he promised he would never speak to again -- his grandfather Geza (Edward Asner), a detective with the police. Bring Him Home also stars Sharon Gless, George "Buck" Flower, and Noah Blake.
