Young Amy (Academy Award® winner Anna Paquin - 'The Piano') is reunited with her father (Jeff Daniels - '101 Dalmations') after a nine year separation. One day, Amy discovers a nest of orphaned goose eggs and decides to take them home and nurture them until they hatch. When the newly hatched goslings adopt her as their Mother Goose, Amy and her father become airborne adventurers, battling against bad weather and a host of other pitfalls in their efforts to teach the geese to fly.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Fly Away Home is a poignant and inspiring film about a 13-year-old girl from New Zealand sent to live with her father in Canada after her mother dies in a car accident. The car accident at the beginning may be difficult for younger viewers and for anyone who has experienced a similar tragedy. But Fly Away Home's message of concern and protection of Canada geese and their habitats, and the inventive ways Amy and Tom Alden work together to save them, should delight animal lovers of all ages. As a "mother goose" to the gaggle of geese she helps to fly south for the winter, Amy shows a great deal of care and conviction.
