More Description

The Prodigal Father is the story of how one American family turned its bright expectations into crushing disappointment and then, ultimately, victory of spirit. The Du Pre family's story is told by the middle of three children, Jon. As Jon comes of age he lives out his boyhood dreams. He marries a beauty queen. He and his wife have two healthy children. He becomes a successful television newscaster in a major city and builds his young family's dream house. Unbeknownst to anyone but Jon, something is wrong. Fear and rage from his childhood have lingered, and threaten to destroy the seemingly perfect life he has created. Jon makes a terrifying pivotal decision -- to seek out the cause of his confusion and bitterness. Jon must descend into the foreboding other world of homelessness to find the man who abandoned him and his brothers 21 years earlier.

Through determination and ingenuity, Jon finds his father and brings him to account. The discovery that arises from their confrontation enables Jon to forgive his father, to be freed from the shackles of his past and to return to his family ready at last to be the husband and father he aspired to be.
