SYNOPSIS: The power of love shines in this heart-warming tale of friendship and inspiration between an unlikely duo. Cheryl inadvertently befriends a mourning goose, Honk, while recycling in the local park. As the budding friendship blossoms and Cheryl seeks Honk a new home, he becomes a viral sensation capturing the hearts and minds of millions.
Lise Romanoff, CEO/Managing Director of Vision Films, Inc. shares, “HONK is a feel-good and needed film for us now and always. It reminds us of what true friendship and love means and how our connections with animals can benefit the world around us.”
Filmmaker Cheryl Allison says, “Originally I thought this film would be about me rescuing a lonely, dumped goose. What I never imagined was that his story would not only raise awareness and educate about the issues of dumping domestic waterfowl, but it would reach millions of people worldwide and give them hope and comfort during a time of uncertainty for so many. HONK is not only the ambassador for dumped ducks and geese, he became a symbol of hope for people when we needed it most. If that’s not a fairy tale ending, I don’t know what is.”
