Homeward Bound is the story of three GI's wounded in the Iraqi War, stuck in a hospital in Germany, waiting to go home. When two wounded Iraqi civilians are temporarily housed in the same ward, they all share the same nightmare. They have been irredeemably changed by their wounds and experiences, and now they must re-imagine their lives if they want to save themselves - and get back home, not as they left it, but as they have become. When home is not just a place, but the dream of all you lost.
