The Canadian government proclaimed 2010 The Year of the British Home Child, and issued a commemorative stamp to honour the thousands of waifs and orphans transplanted from the urban slums of England to Canada to work as cheap farm laborers or domestic servants.

In Finding Home, a group of Home Children bring together the journeys of Sarah Phillips, an orphaned British servant who is desperate to find family, and Richard Breeze, the disgraced son a Canadian sawmill owner who must leave his family home and seek his own place in the world. Can they all find what they seek in the hamlet of Forest Mills, Ontario?
