Fly Away Home (1996) as Television Anchor
Following the death of her mother, thirteen-year-old Amy is bundled off to the Ontario farm to live with her estranged father, Thomas, an artist/inventor who has shaped his environment to reflect his eclectic interests. One day, Amy's travels through the farm's woods lead to a discovery that touches her: a nest of orphaned goose eggs. She nurtures the eggs until they hatch and, since geese imprint on whoever they see first, Amy becomes Mother Goose. Seeing his daughter's happiness, Thomas does not have the heart to deny her family of goslings. The young geese thrive but their idyll is disturbed when an officious wildlife officer tells Thomas that it is illegal to raise wild geese without clipping their wings. Thomas knows that nature will compel the geese to migrate south, but they've never learned to fly and with no other geese to show them how, they seem doomed. Thomas, however, has found a cause and decides to use his modest flying skills and hang glider experience to teach the geese to fly.
