To be honest, there isn’t anything necessarily mind-blowing about this short. However, there is no denying the animation, with the song, makes a well-crafted story. One that should get you emotional but, even with our level of sensitivity, it just didn’t bring us to tears. It felt like a commercial that was missing where you could donate money to a non-profit organization.
Rating: Mixed (Divisive)
