DRAWN BACK HOME reminds us that home is where the heart is, in this deeply emotional story of two men separated by different life choices who try to find their way back home. Eric has become a fixture in Caleb Hills, the Midwestern hometown he never left. Always the go-to guy to help everyone around town and taking care of an ailing father for many years, Eric built his life around family and close friends. But after the death of his father and the end of his marriage, he becomes restless and rudderless. Struggling to make a decent living in a small town with few opportunities, Eric decides to take a shot at attracting tourists by posting videos of the quaint town online. That’s when Drew, who left Caleb Hills for Chicago over ten years ago, restless himself and looking for a pretext to reconnect with Eric, decides to check the town out as an event location for his employer. The awkward reacquaintance of these former best friends gives way to a depth of feeling they both must navigate to resolve issues of the past while dealing with uncertainties of the future.
