After being laid off from her teaching job in Boston, Brooke moves back home to live with her parents. In the shadow of the dying Occupy Movement, she is but one of the many overeducated and underemployed forced to make such a retreat. Disillusioned and weighed down by the daily monotony of working in her family’s restaurant, she struggles to find a way back to her independent, adult life. When her estranged childhood friend Morgan pays an unexpected visit, old wounds are reopened and Brooke is forced to confront all the thwarted expectations she once had for herself. Set in a winter on Cape Cod that’s both bleak and beautiful, “By Way of Home” is an intimate portrait of a generation interrupted, a story about family, friendship, love and the ever more elusive American dream.
