After you have been to hell, you just want to go home.”

The Return is a historical drama set 1000 years ago with an ancient band of young warriors arrogantly (and naively) setting off to war, expecting a victorious return home after a few weeks. After experiencing three years of the horrors of war, the few remaining warriors sail back home to a very emotional reunion with loved ones and, for the leader, Erik, a big surprise. To convey a universal anti-war theme, we have a band of warriors from very diverse ethnic groups – men and women – struggling to survive together against all odds. My intention was to create a powerful and emotional film about the insanity of war and the power of love to keep us going through the darkness.

Directed by Bo Tanas (Canada)
