The creator of GATOR presents an enchanting follow-up about a carousel animal who longs to
fly -- and a love that is bigger than the skies.

Duck is a carousel animal who longs to fly. She spends her days watching real, flying ducks, and her nights dreaming of soaring among them. Flying is all she can think about ... until a little lost duckling wanders into her life. Soon they are inseparable. But when Duckling's yellow down is replaced by long white feathers, Duck is determined to do whatever she can to help him fly - even if it means being left behind.
