Based on a novel by MacKinlay Kantor, this film depicts the difficult readjustments faced by American World War II veterans returning home. We follow the stories of three men: ex-sergeant Al Stepehnson, sailor Homer Parrish and former bombardier Fred Derry. All three veterans discover how the war has changed them, while people at home remain the same and each must re-integrate themselves with their families and the work market.
