'To achieve the incredible, you have to attempt the impossible.'

It's been 19 years since Anna Paquin helped her gaggle of orphaned geese migrate south in the heart-warming family favorite Fly Away Home. Released in 1996, long before the True Blood star was kicking beastly butt, Paquin was playing Amy, a tiny teen with big dreams.

Amy, a.k.a. "Mama Goose," is only 14 years old when her mother is killed in a tragic car crash and she sent to live with her estranged father, Tom, in Canada. He's an eccentric inventor who has no clue how to be a father. Amy is miserable in her new life and all seems to be heading for disaster until developers start tearing up a local forest and she makes a surprising discovery...

With an invigorated sense of purpose, and new found need for her father's technical skills, Amy's self appointed task is to keep the geese alive and help them make the long trip south before winter arrives. With a set of super-light, goose-shaped airplanes, Amy, her dad and friends must figure out a way to fly them home...

But what have the cast of Fly Away Home been up to since their mission was completed almost two decades ago? Let's find out...
