Harold Krebs (Richard Backus) went off to fight World War I, "the war to end all wars." Then he came home...and found himself wishing it had never ended. To Ernest Hemingway (Pulitzer Prize Winner), the hardest part of the war was coming home. This is the essence of "Soldier's Home" -a story with many similarities to the recent experience of our veterans. Harold finds he doesn't fit in anymore. He's outgrown his old life and now needs peace and quiet to work things out for himself. Yet he's pressured by his loving but misunderstanding mother (Nancy Marchand: "The Sopranos") to rejoin a community in which he feels alien. An intense a personal character study from the giant of American Literature, Harold discovers going home is never easy-and maybe it isn't even possible.
