Little Red Wagon

Synopsis: Carrot-topped 8-year-old Zach Bonner lives in Tampa with his realtor mom Laurie and teenage sister Kelley. In 2004, in the wake of Hurricane Charley, Zach uses his beat-up toy wagon to collect water, food and clothing for families left homeless by the storm. Emboldened by his success and the attention he is receiving from the local media, Zach battles bureaucratic hurdles to start his own charity, the Little Red Wagon Foundation, to produce and distribute "Zach Packs", backpacks filled with life's bare essentials, plus a toy. Zach's life intersects with that of newly widowed Margaret Craig and her young son Jim, whose hardships spiral out of control and land them in a series of homeless shelters. Suddenly, Zach gets the idea to walk from Tampa to the state capital, Tallahassee, to bring attention to the plight of homeless youth. His mother is against it; and his sister feels increasingly resentful of Zach and the attention he's getting. Zach's walk begins amid great fanfare: a rousing

Oh, we could do that.

Zach, please wash up.

I'll bet everybody in the

neighborhood has lots of water like us.

Tons of emergency stuff, too.

I should go around and ask

them if they want to donate...

Well, I wouldn't do it.

Right now

people are off to work.

Why don't you

give them some notice?

Collect it on Saturday.

People work

on Saturday, too.

You could make flyers.

Tell them to sit stuff out on

the porch if they're not home.

Yeah, you should

help him with that, Kel.

I'm busy.

You're busy?

Come on,

help him out.

You two kids don't do

anything together anymore.

I'm not a kid anymore,

in case you haven't noticed.

Hey, Mom, Kelley.

Where's that list of

emergency supplies we had?

We can put it on the flyers,

so people know what's needed.

Zach, hands.

Wash 'em. Now.



Kelley, come on.

Let's do this.

Hey, Zach. You

wanna play some Horse?

Uh, I gotta go pick up

the hurricane stuff first,

but it won't take long.

So after, okay?

Your loss, dude.

Cool. Kelley!

Right here.

Let's do this.

Brenda and I are

going to the mall.

Oh, no. No, I'm sorry, you're not.

You gotta keep an eye

on your little brother

while I go

check my property.

Good luck.


Kelley, look at this!

Oh, my gosh. This is so

cool. I hit the jackpot.

Yeah, over here, too.

Hey, what did you find?

Wow. Look at all that.

Good for you.

You know, it's pretty

hot out here.

Maybe you shouldn't

leave that in the sun.

Why don't you, uh,

load up the van,

I'll change and then we can go

right over to the collection center.

That's not all, Mom.

What do you mean?

Hit the remote.




We are going to have

to make more than one trip.

Hey! Hey!

Look who's here with

another load. It's the Z-Man.
