Amy is only 13 years old when her mother is killed in an auto wreck in New Zealand. She goes to Canada to live with her father, an eccentric inventor whom she barely knows. Amy is miserable in her new life...that is until she discovers a nest of goose eggs that were abandoned when developers began tearing up a local forest. The eggs hatch and Amy becomes "Mama Goose". The young birds must fly south for the winter, but who will lead them there? With a pair of ultralight airplanes, Amy, her dad and their friends must find a way to do it... Written by

Nine years after they played father and daughter in Fly Away Home (1996), Jeff Daniels and Anna Paquin filmed a sex scene together for The Squid and the Whale (2005). Daniels said in interview at the time that the way they coped with filming the sex scene was by trying "not to think about...you know, geese." See more »
About 30 minutes into the movie Jeff and Anna are having breakfast. Jeff places his hand on his right cheek and when he removes it the right half of his mustache is missing. See more »
