This animated short tells the story of a young boy who finds an injured snow goose and nurses it back to health. Constant companions through the sun-filled days of summer, the two sadly separate in the fall when the bird obeys the call to join its flock for the annual flight south. Will the friendship endure?

Show the first part of the film, up to the point where the goose leaves, and ask students to react to what they have seen. Ask them to imagine the rest of the story the way they would like to see it end, and write it in a short text that they will then share with the class. Then show the end of the film and discuss it, comparing it with the students’ versions.
