Fly away home

L'incredibile volo
by Carroll Ballard Fiction Canada 1996 110'

After her mother's death, a 13 year old girl goes to live with her father in an isolated farm in Canada, where she finds an abandoned nest of wild geese. Thanks to a rudimentary incubator she can make the eggs hatch and becomes the chicks' foster mother. Then she ventures into an extraordinary flight on an ultra-light aircraft to teach them the migratory route southwards. She accompanies them all the way from Canada to Florida. Next Spring the geese will be able to find their way back home. The film tells the real story of Bill Lishman, who taught wild birds how to fly on safer routes during migrations.
