ABOUT THE WAY HOME

The Way Home tells the story of three generations of women - Kat Landry (Leigh), her teen Alice (Laflamme-Snow) and Kat's mother Del (MacDowell) - who are all strong, willful and independent. More than 20 years prior, lifechanging events prompted Kat to move away from her small, Canadian farm town and she remains estranged from Del to this day. At a crossroads in her life, Kat moves back with Alice to her family's farm though the reunion isn't what Kat envisioned. When Alice and Kat unwittingly discover the ability to travel between the past and present, mother and daughter are determined to unearth the truth around the earlier tragedies as they try to change the course of events. Kat's childhood friend Elliot (Williams) is there for them in both eras as they navigate their journeys across time, helping the three women find their way back to each other.

The Way Home is a Neshama Entertainment production in association with MarVista Entertainment. Heather Conkie, Alexandra Clarke, Fernando Szew, Hannah Pillemer, Larry Grimaldi, Ani Kevork, Arnie Zipursky, Marly Reed, Suzanne Berger, Lauren MacKinlay, MacDowell and Leigh are executive producers. Kyle Hart is supervising producer. Jessica Runck is consulting producer. Tally Yong Knoll is story editor.
