Storyline

Carrot-topped 8-year-old Zach Bonner lives in Tampa with his realtor mom Laurie and teenage sister Kelley. In 2004, in the wake of Hurricane Charley, Zach uses his beat-up toy wagon to collect water, food and clothing for families left homeless by the storm. Emboldened by his success and the attention he is receiving from the local media, Zach battles bureaucratic hurdles to start his own charity, the Little Red Wagon Foundation, to produce and distribute "Zach Packs", backpacks filled with life's bare essentials, plus a toy. Zach's life intersects with that of newly widowed Margaret Craig and her young son Jim, whose hardships spiral out of control and land them in a series of homeless shelters. Suddenly, Zach gets the idea to walk from Tampa to the state capital, Tallahassee, to bring attention to the plight of homeless youth. His mother is against it; and his sister feels increasingly resentful of Zach and the attention he's getting. Zach's walk begins amid great fanfare: a rousing...

Trivia

The Florida Highway Patrol car toward the end of the movie was pretty close to Florida's real FHP cars with the exception of the following. Front grille. They don't have all red blinking lights in the fog light area and the State FHP seal on the doors were wrong color. Also the rear plates were white where as Florida's State tax exempt plates are all yellow. The guy driving the car also did not have a Florida State Trooper uniform. The film was shot in North Carolina. Also although Zach's mom walks the entire length of the route with her son in the hot summer of "Florida" she never breaks sweat through her blouse until the very end. Highly unlikely she stay that cool in near 90 degree temps walking 300 miles. See more »

One of the best Inspirational movies you will ever see!!!
27 April 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie, Little Red Wagon, was such a joy to watch! I watched it with my family, and we were left so touched by it! Its about a little boy, who discovered his true calling in life, to help the homeless in America. Whats even more inspiring, is that it is based on a very real and true story, that leaves you so inspired and filled with hope to see beyond what you can see in this world. The characters were amazing, and did such an excellent job, couldn't ask for me. This movie almost brought me to tears, it is just by far one of the best movies I have ever seen!! I enjoyed it so so so much, loved it, and would highly recommend it to anyone of any age to watch it! Trust me, it leaves you so inspired, and gives you hope that you can do anything if you believe!!!
