If you had to walk out of your present life in 48 hours, possibly never to return, what would you take with you? What would you leave behind? When a photo album from a Japanese-Canadian family is discovered in an attic, it finds its way into the hands of Kagan Goh. This sets in motion a personal quest for Kagan to find the family or descendants of the owners. He pursues the mystery, aided by the late Mary Seki, his 69-year-old detective sidekick. Documenting the search and redressing the wrongs of the past is a symbolic "homecoming"--return to a place of self-acceptance, belonging, wholeness and healing.
