Description: Based on the best-selling novel by John Irving, it's the story of Homer Wells, an child without parents raised and mentored by his orphanage's doctor, a man named Larch. He taught Homer everything about medicine and what he could about right and wrong, but he never gave him rules to live by. When he leaves to discover the world, he has more excitement than he could ever imagine, especially when he falls in love for the first time. But when forced to make decisions that will change the course of his future, he ultimately realizes that he can't escape his past.
