Three children from a single parent family have a very adorable duck, Hildegarde. Two very sinister men steal Hildegarde and place the duck in their traveling menagerie of exotic birds, all of them ill-gotten. The children set out to recover Hildegarde and become heroes, while also effecting the capture of the two sinister men.
Ardustry Home Entertainment produced this family video, and they did a good job for an unknown company in the industry. The kids are cute and very good actors. The bad guys are really crummy slime bags, and the portrayals are also well done. Hildegarde, the duck, waddles its way into the children’s lives and proves to be the engine that keeps the story moving along. The story, while it may be predictable, is another tale for kids of good vs. evil and good winning out in the end. Recommended for kids of all ages.
