Fly Away Home

When 13-year-old Amy (Anna Paquin) loses her mother, she suddenly finds herself in the care of her estranged, eccentric father (Jeff Daniels) in Ontario, Canada. At first she's withdrawn and reclusive, but when she adopts an orphaned flock of baby geese, she begins to come out of her shell. But Amy and her father soon learn that geese learn everything from their mother — including migratory patterns — and that geese being kept as pets will have to have their wings clipped. Amy can't bear to imagine that her beloved geese will never fly.

Then her father has an idea: if they can build an ultralight plane, perhaps they can not only teach the flock to fly, but fly them all the way to a new home in a bird sanctuary. And it turns out that their plan will not only save both the geese and the sanctuary, but it might save their relationship as father and daughter, too. Loosely based on the true story of Bill Lishman, who taught geese to follow his ultralight, this is an inspiring film about animal stewardship, empathy, and the power of family.
