In 1990, 'Home Alone' became the highest-grossing movie of its time and made Macaulay Culkin a star.

'Home Alone' is a beloved family film, starring Culkin as Kevin McCallister. He is a boy who needs to protect his house from burglars when his family leaves him alone at home by accident.

In one of the pivotal scenes, Kevin says, "Everyone in this family hates me. I don't want a new family, I don't want any family", in an argument with his mother.

Shortly after that, Kevin realizes that his wish came true.

Initially, he feels very pleased with the idea of staying home alone; however, after a series of events that unfold, Kevin finds a new appreciation towards his family and the strength that comes from togetherness. His family also understands that they had not paid attention to their youngest member long before going on a trip.

This movie is about many things starting from everyday trivial issues in the family to the bonding that comes after separation from each other. More than anything, the moral of the story is to be aware and vigilant of the circumstances, be resourceful, and above all, keep calm while dealing with a threat to remain focused.
