Love Is is a tender story about the love shown between a girl and her pet duckling which is used as a metaphor for the broader concept of love. The young girl finds a stray duckling and raises it until it is time to return to its family. During the year it is with her she finds love in “noisy midnight feedings” and “peaceful sleeping” and all the moments in between. After letting the duck go the girl comes back next season to see her duck all grown up, but still remembering her.
