The Way Home tells the story of Randy Simpkins (Dean Cain), a successful real estate agent, and his wife Christal (Lori Beth Sikes), who are struggling to deal with their young son's autism. After a particularly difficult day at work, Randy takes his son and two-year-old daughter with him to a construction site, where he has to make a quick stop to discuss a project with a client.

While Randy is talking to the client, his son Joey (Matt Lintz) wanders off on his own, and Randy soon realizes that he's gone missing. In a panic, he starts to search for his son, but with no success. Eventually, he enlists the help of the local police, but they too are unsuccessful in locating Joey.

Despite the best efforts of the search party, Joey is nowhere to be found. They begin to lose hope until another little boy, who also has autism, offers a clue to Joey's whereabouts. With renewed hope, Randy, Christal, and the search party head out to find Joey.

Their journey takes them through rough terrain and they soon realize that it's not going to be an easy search. Randy is forced to confront his own limitations and face his own doubts about the abilities of his son.

As they continue their search, they discover that Joey has found a friend in the little boy who gave them the clue. But, Joey's new friend is also lost and it's up to Randy and the search party to bring both boys home safely.
