A COUNTRY CALLED HOME is a compelling coming of age story with universal appeal because it deals with trials and trepidations that most people experience in one way or another, no matter who they are or where they are from. The story incorporates the views of people from all walks of life; different generations, different places, and different socio-economic backdrops. After rudderless 26 year old Ellie learns that her estranged, alcoholic father has died, her world is disrupted and she begins a journey that takes her to small-town Texas, where she finds direction, family, and friendship in this most unexpected place. Wannabe West Coast furniture designer Ellie heads back to Texas to deal with the death of her father, reconnecting with her roots in unexpected ways. A frazzled young woman can’t pick a direction, so back to Texas seems as good as any. It’s amazing how new home can be.
