A prodigal son returns from the battlefields of WWI, apparently a hero of the Great War, and charms his way into the hearts of his brotherís son, wife, and ward, as well as most of the small town they now call home.
But old habits die hard. A poignant play about the search for heroes, the value of reputation, and the nature of honor and sacrifice.
