Set in North London, The Homecoming, according to press notes, "concerns the ultimate dysfunctional family, presided over by its patriarch Max (Ian McShane). Living under his dilapidated roof are his younger brother Sam (Michael McKean), and two of his sons: Lenny (Raúl Esparza), the town pimp, and Joey (Gareth Saxe), a boxer-in-training. Tensions begin to flair with the arrival of Max's eldest son Teddy (James Frain), who returns home after six years with his new wife Ruth (Eve Best). Seduction, betrayal, and divisiveness ensue, as the family welcomes the homecoming of its estranged brother and vies for the attention of his dangerously alluring wife."
