Storyline

Deep within the shadowy world of paramilitary white-supremacist movements, Into the Homeland is the story of an anguished father's search for his kidnapped daughter. Ex-cop Jackson Swallow (Powers Boothe) follows his daughter's trail to a sleepy Wyoming town, which he soon realizes is home to a violent right-wing group, the American Liberation Movement. Infiltrating the group, Swallow becomes a bodyguard to it's Hitler-like leader, Derrick Wesley (Paul Le Mat), and learns that Wesley's son Tripp (C. Thomas Howell) knows where his daughter can be found. Swallow has one chance to find his daughter - turn Tripp against the group and his own father, while keeping his true identity secret. The desperate struggle of wills turns terrifyingly violent in the explosive climax. Written by Anonymous

While at work some of us were discussing movies and actors when someone mentioned C Thomas Howell they brought up the hitcher, the outsiders, ETC...ETC.. and i said how about the one where he....and nobody knew what this film was. When i first seen this movie it was in 91 . i was getting ready to go asleep late on a Sunday night the movie was just starting when i turned the bedroom TV on .it only took a few minutes of watching and i was awake for the duration .what a well acted film with a strong powerful message . i wish this film got more attention .alot of people missed a good one and i think they would really appreciate the awesome performance here. a must see in my opinion.
