would one go about running TO home?

As a side note, this photo was taken from the set of the 1988 movie, Hairspray. It features Pia Zadora and fellow cast mates. This was the first John Waters film I had ever seen and like it more for what it wasn't, rather than what it was.  What it was can be described as the John Water's version of the 1960s, in pre-segregated Baltimore. What it wasn't was harsh. The character's slapstick drama and cheerful song and dance sort of killed the underlying message. It seems that segregation and other political issues of the time happened to find themselves in the middle of Water's romp just to spark emotions. Or at least a song. Either way, I'm upset to admit it was ever remade.
