About Come Home Come Home

A suburban mom has rebuilt her life...

Jill Farrow is a typical suburban mom. She's finally gotten her life back on track after a divorce. She's about to remarry a fabulous guy, her job as a pediatrician fulfills her and her daughter, Megan, is a happy 13-year-old juggling homework and swim team. Jill's suburban life is exactly as she wants it.

Until a knock at the door changes everything...

Jill's ex-stepdaughter, Abby, delivers shocking news -- Jill's ex-husband is dead. Abby is positive that her father was murdered and pleads with Jill to help find his killer. Jill is hesitant, but agrees to ask a few questions and begins to find that things aren't adding up. As she continues to search for answers, her new family's fate is threatened and her own life could be at risk. Yet Jill is now so far in that she can't turn her back on a child she once called her own -- a child who still needs her.

And the definition of motherhood is put to the test...

Come Home tackles tough questions: Do you ever stop being a mother? Can you ever have an ex-child? What are the limits and love of family?
