Sometimes the hardest trip is the one back home. Richard Pryor delivers an amazing performance as a returning POW who finds that the life he left behind is long gone. His wife has dumped him. His mother is ill, and his daughter looks at him like a stranger. With no other prospects, he is tempted into a life of crime, but how far will he go just to survive? That answer will determine what kind of hero he'll be. Margot Kidder and Ray Sharkey costar in this engaging drama.
