A family with three children has been living a serene life in their small home located next to a highway that has been unutilized since it was built ten years ago. One day, an unforeseen event occurs, and the highway is opened to traffic. The perpetual flow of cars and its noise overturn the order of this family that has been living in seclusion for years. The day-to-day lives they have built for themselves topple over. Bringing together the masters of European Cinema, Isabelle Huppert and Olivier Gourmet, Home is the first feature-length movie from the documentarian Ursula Meier.
