This amateur film from 1945 shows the joy of a family reuniting at the end of the Second World War after the men return from overseas service.

In December 1945 Mrs Isabel Sprod awaits the return of her three sons and son-in-law from the war. Her daughter Kathleen and granddaughter Jill also prepare for the homecoming.

This amateur film made by John Sprod re-enacts a reunion between the family members when the four men return to Adelaide from active service overseas during the Second World War. Through the course of the film, Mrs Sprod welcomes home her son George from the Army, John from the Airforce, Dan from the Navy and her brother-in-law Des Carter from the Army. The film includes captions and illustrations drawn by George Sprod as well as acting performances from nine members of the immediate family.
