Like a photo album, ""Back Home"" presents close-up portraits of everyday places and ordinary people. There are meditations on downtown Mobile, where Roy Hoffman's grandparents arrived as immigrants a century ago; the waterfront where lonshoremen labor and shrimpers work their nets; the back roads leading to obscure but intriguing destinations. Hoffman records local people telling their own tales of race relations, sports, agriculture, and Mardi Gras celebrations. Fishermen, baseball players, bakers, authors, political figures - a strikingly diverse population walks across the stage of ""Back Home"".
