When Amy Alden discovers a nest of goose eggs and brings them home to hatch, the newborns "imprint" on her, following her everywhere, claiming her as their mother. As they grow, Amy and her dad, Thomas, realize they must take on the responsibility of teaching them to migrate for the winter. From Canada to North Carolina, father, daughter, and geese all learn to fly together. The movie Fly Away Home, starring Academy Award(r)- winning actress Anna Paquin, Jeff Daniels, and Dana Delaney, was inspired by the life of Bill Lishman, the Canadian artist who really did teach geese to fly.
