Homecoming is the poignant story of five friends who attended a Historically Black University together in the 90’s. While gathering for Homecoming weekend at the house that was once their off-campus dorm, news of one member’s recent death forces the friends to reflect on the past; rekindle relationships; reveal secrets; and redefine their lives.

A funny, poignant story of a group of 30-somethings, successful in their own individual ways, who had attended the historically Black college Haywood University in Washington DC. Hill Hadley, now a professor at Haywood, has married his college sweetheart Leslie, and they went so far as to buy and renovate the old dorm house, known as « Eleanor » where they all lived in while students. Hill decided it would be fun to invite their old college friends back to Haywood for Homecoming Weekend. The friends, Deena Scott, now a successful Hollywood TV writer; Dr. Barrett Wallingford, a successful psychiatrist; and, Abby Long, a social worker in the hood, return for what is supposed to be a care-free weekend of fun and an opportunity to rekindle relationships. But there was a sixth member of the group, Robert who recently died penniless and in prison. When Abby asks everyone to chip in to give Robert a proper burial, it sparks memories with secrets that require the friends not just to bury a friend, but to also bury the past.
