In today’s uncertain world, what is the meaning of home?

Dallas connections in LOOKING FOR HOMEThe film is edited by local theatre and film artist Jason Johnson-Spinos and features several DFW locals as subjects: Akin Babatundé; Jeremy Davis; JB, Sheryl, and Peyton Nicholson; Vicki and Bill Gies; Milane Sarquis; Yolanda Montgomery; and Carol Adams.
