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 »

Inspiring and encouraging movie
18 July 2015 | by mckeesbirdSee all my reviews

Watch this movie. Especially if you've gotten a bit world weary and jaded about our fellow humans. Inspiring, uplifting, and encouraging this film follows the true life story of a little boy who ups and takes some serious action to help the survivors of Hurricane Charley in Florida 2004. This little fellow's dedication and compassion for other people, especially children, is something to behold and I'll be thinking about it for a long time to come. Also, there is a subplot involving a young woman and her son that well illustrated the issues homeless families face. A family film I highly recommend parents watch with their children as it has a great message; it shows how one caring heart, no matter how small, can make a huge difference in the lives of others.
