An exploration into the difficult readjustments made by WWII veterans returning to civilian life that follows the intertwined homecoming stories of ex-sergeant Al Stephenson (Fredric March), former bombadier Fred Derry (Dana Andrews), and sailor Homer Parrish (Harold Russell).

Profoundly relevant in 1946, the film still offers a surprisingly intricate and ambivalent exploration of American daily life.
