Filmmaker Steven Bognar presents an intimate look into his father's quest to return to his homeland in this moving documentary. In 1956, Bela Bognar fled his native Hungary after taking an unsuccessful stand against the Russian invaders. When he left for Belgium, he swore he would never return. Bognar ended up in Madison, Wisconsin where he married, went to school and had Steven. Though he found success in his new home, the elder Bognar never felt at home in the US and eventually decided to try to return to Hungary.
