The Road Home.

Posted on Thursday, December 19th, 2013.

We released a brand new animated short today, “The Road Home,” and it’s just in time for the holidays! “The Road Home,” will remind you that everyone needs a helping hand once in a while (the one we all can lend and the one we all need every so often).

In “The Road Home,” Eddie Lanier recounts his struggle with alcoholism for more than 40 years, until his 28th stint in rehab finally led to sobriety. Homeless and hungry, Eddie roamed the streets of his native Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and found a friend in David Wright, a passerby whose frequent donations stood out. The two friends discuss Eddie’s remarkable journey.

Check out these exclusive initial sketches from The Rauch Brothers–only on We Are StoryCorps. Enjoy!










And here’s the final product–“The Road Home.”

“The Road Home” is part of StoryCorps’ first-ever half-hour animated special, Listening Is an Act of Love–encore national broadcast on February 7 on POV. Check your local listings:
