When new couple Peter and Katy - and Katy's son John - go on their first family holiday to France, the plan is to bring back a tan, a few happy memories and six crates of vintage champagne. What they actually bring back is going to come as a big surprise...

Home follows the experience of Sami, a Syrian refugee who enters Britain illegally to claim asylum. Living in with Peter, Katy and John while he waits for his application to be processed, Sami learns more than he expected about the people he's living with, himself, and his own family somewhere in Europe.
