Tis intimate film, Ms. Delawari's first, is about ... her family's history (seen in home movies and photographs), the resilience of the Afghan people, and her own story of self-discovery as a musician.

"We Came Home" has its amateurish side, but it's effortlessly affecting when showing how music acts as an extended hand across generations and cultures.
