Synopsis

One...two...three...Willie is having fun counting the eleven ducklings parading behind mama duck outside the motel restaurant. But soon he realizes that some of the ducklings seem to be disappearing, and the grown-ups he tells don't take him very seriously. It's up to a resourceful young boy to show that good counting and caring are called for to get to the bottom of things.
