EXCLUSIVE: ‘Return’ Clip with Linda Cardellini

Back from a military tour of duty, Kelli (Linda Cardellini) can't wait to rejoin her old life in the Rust Belt town she's always known. She's ready to experience the feelings of everyday life, the carpet under her bare feet, the smell of her baby's head. But slowly, her world comes to feel unfamiliar. Her friends love her but seem preoccupied with trifles. Her children need more focused attention than she can give, and as much as he tries, her husband Mike doesn't understand what she's been through. As Kelli's dislocation ripples through her world, she risks becoming an outsider. When she's thrown back on her own resources Kelli has to struggle to find a new way forward.
