The parable of the Prodigal Son is one of the most poignant of Christ's discourses. It deals with the restless search of maturing youth, the conflict of values between generations, and the differing emotional reactions to an errant wanderer. The complex social pressures of living today have made those elements of the Prodigal Son vivid and sometimes painfully real in the lives of modern parents and teenagers. The Long Road Home examines these questions dramatically. Shortly after Nathan returns -- surrounded by love, indifference and resentment -- he prepares to put the pieces of his life back together amid humor, pathos, and routine of an existence very similar to the drama that forms our lives today. A theme of universal appeal.
