Stevie hasn’t yet told his family that he’s back in Glasgow. He’s not far from his uncle Eric, who left for love, an emotion Stevie has toughened himself against. Stevie’s mother, Lindsey, ran her whole life. From her father, her husband, and eventually Stevie. Moving between Stevie’s contemporary life and the story of his parents, THE WALK HOME is about love, family, cutting ties, and getting drawn back in.
