LITTLE RED WAGON is based on the inspirational true story of eight-year-old Zach Bonner on his quest to change the world with nothing more than his beat-up red wagon and a blazing spirit of philanthropy. When Zach sets out to help homeless children in America in the wake of Hurricane Charley, by walking from his house in Tampa, Florida to the White House, he must overcome bureaucrats and blisters and capture the hearts of his fractured family and the entire nation.
From award-winning filmmaker David Anspaugh (Rudy, Hoosiers) and acclaimed screenwriter Patrick Sheane Duncan (Mr. Holland’s Opus), Little Red Wagon is the inspiring true story of eight-year-old Zach Bonner.

Armed with nothing more than a blazing spirit of philanthropy and his beat-up little red wagon, Zach sets out to help the 1.3 million homeless children in America, one wagon full at a time. In the process, he sweeps along his fractured family and, ultimately, the entire country.
