Jeong Yeon and Jong Bae are a happily married couple with a young daughter; they pour their savings into an auto repair shop only to have the rug pulled out from underneath them when a friend of Jong Bae's commits suicide after he is unable to pay his loans. Since Jong Bae acted as his friend's guarantor, the debt now falls onto them. With Jong Bae gradually growing despondent following their financialturmoil, Jeong Yeon makes the hard decision to do a job for a seedy acquaintance. She agrees to deliver diamonds from Paris to Seoul, which she thought would be legal. Jeong Yeon arrives in France, but as soon as she sets foot in Orly Airport she is arrested and police discover more than 30 kilograms of cocaine in her bag. Being thrown in a French jail is only the beginning of her troubles as legal wranglings and an indifferent Korean embassy in France soon see her shipped off to a penitentiary on the far-flung island of Martinique, a French territory in the Caribbean, where she is jailed for two years without being tried in court. Back in Korea, her husband does his best to get through to the diplomats and secure her passage home

This is an incredible movie!
The story itself it very dark because it is based on true events (and partly fictional). So the story in this movie is unique. But because of the fact that it is based on true events it wil emotionally move you. I cried, sat on the tip of my seat, held my breath and I could feel the despair and anger.
The cast did an amazing job. It was almost like they were the ones who had been trough this all. Their emotions were acted in an excellent way.
The music they had chosen fit every scene.

I think everyone should watch this movie. It has suspense, drama, romance and so much more. It is definitely not a waste of your time, please watch this movie!

An extraordinary movie that sums up the courage of a middle cast woman who under goes the lamentable circumstances in a world where 'justice' and 'humanity' are just dictionnary entries.. The movie is bit long but it is not at all boring since every scene contributes to the climax of the story. 'The Road Home' is based on a true story, so it is a perfect portrait of the world as it is. A must watch for everyone who got the courage and the will to open the eyes to see the real face of this materialistic world,
