Although she's been a little bit naughty, a young girl named Freya is allowed to dress in her finest clothes and attend the yearly goose concert with her mother. The weather, however, wreaks havoc on their plans and Freya is sent off alone to deliver the much needed supplies. Freya has never paid attention to the route before and alternates between confidence and nervousness as she pulls the heavy cart to Goosetown. She makes some bad decisions and meets helpful animals along the way. Although she is much too young to bear this burden, she never gives up her heroic task and with the help of her best goose-friend, they save Goosetown. At the end of her jouney home, she finds Momma waiting with a big hug, hot apple cider and a roaring fire.
