Synopsis
A sentimental tale of a contemporary black family from Detroit whose two-week vacation in the South leads to a variety of changes in their lives. Robert Hooks' real-life sons played his fictional sons in the story. Pilot to a prospective series called "Down Home." A second one-hour movie in 1978 had basically the same cast, except for Madge Sinclair replacing Cicely Tyson.
