Summary, etc.: After enrolling in an undergraduate seminar on the Odyssey that his son teaches, Mendelsohn hoped to learn the great literature he'd neglected in his youth. Instead he was presented with an opportunity for a father-and-son philosophical journey, engaging in debates over how to interpret Homer's classic masterpiece. The two then retraced Odysseus' voyages in a Mediterranean journey that helped them overcome long-held secrets, and learn the meaning of home.
