A witty and sometimes moving story about a Goose who goes looking for the meaning of life and finds it where she least expected to.
Sly Fox – a hunter and predator – sneaks into a chicken coop at night. Just when he's about to grab one of the hens sleeping inside, a humble Goose foils his plan by sounding the alarm. She goes on to tell Fox that her life has lost its meaning and that she'd like him to invite her over to dinner – as the main course. But Fox doesn't feel like eating bony old Goose, who is nostalgic and poetic to boot, and offers to take her to see his old friend Mr. Wolf, who'll be happy to gobble her up. As they journey through the woods, they meet other animals who try to talk Goose out of her ridiculous plan by describing the things that they think make life worth living. But though the animals' diverse goals in life are all very interesting, none of them are in line with Goose's wishes. She wants her life to have a meaning that is all her own. Is living life your own way, off the beaten track, such a bad thing? And, as the Goose asks, “does life have just one meaning?”
