Homer is the fully grown orphan in a remote orphanage in St. Cloud, Maine. As the favorite of orphanage director Dr. Larch, he is taught everything about the process of birth and abortion and by his teens Homer is a skilled albeit unlicensed physician. But Homer yearns to know life outside the orphanage. So when Wally and Candy come to get her an illegal abortion, Homer departs with them to begin work on an apple farm. Then, Wally goes off to war, leaving Homer and Candy alone together. What will Homer learn about life and love in the cider house? What of his destiny as Dr. Larch's replacement?
