Synopsis

Home is where the heart is is a character-driven drama series that tells the story of a dysfunctional family, where two generations reveal issues and complications found in every one of us regardless of race, class or place of birth. When Lóa (70) becomes ill, Arndís (45) her oldest daughter, tries to convince the other siblings to let her take over what they inherited after their father’s death by using her abundant charm and power of persuasion. But as her destructive behavior increases, old wounds open up and family secrets that nobody dared to talk about arise with dire consequences.
