A one-minute teaser of Amazon Prime Video series Homecoming, featuring Julia Roberts, was recently shared by the streaming service. While the video in itself doesn’t reveal much about the premise of the plot, the official synopsis of the show reads, “Heidi Bergman is a caseworker at Homecoming, a Geist Group facility helping soldiers transition to civilian life. Years later she has started a new life, living with her mother and working as a waitress, when a Department of Defense auditor questions why she left the Homecoming facility. Heidi quickly realizes that there’s a whole other story behind the story she’s been telling herself.”
The teaser opens with a shot of what presumably is the geist group facility, Homecoming. We are then taken to a series of rooms, kitchen and then finally, we are introduced to our primary character, essayed by Julia Roberts. The camera zooms in further and Julia raises her head and asks the person seated in front of her, “Shall we get started?”
