While visiting their grandparent's millpond home Drew and Addison meet and become fast friends with Virgil. Virgil is an old Canada goose; the lone survivor of twelve goslings delivered and then released by USPS. Across his many migrations Virgil has always enjoyed sharing the twelve's glorious history. Until Drew and Addison, and a young mated pair, Eagan and Sophia, no one had questioned his version of millpond life. With his beliefs turned upside down and his contentment shattered, Virgil, with his young friends, travels a humor filled romp in an effort to uncover life's true meaning.
