This award-winning animated short film, The Present, will take you on an epic journey from anger, to tears, to a warm lump of goo. Seriously, you have to see how this boy falls in love with a very special puppy.
Based on a comic strip by Fabio Coala, the short film fleshes out Coala’s simple but powerful tale quite beautifully. It’s been a huge hit at film festivals, racking up praise and awards, and the filmmakers have recently decided to make it available for free. Check it out below! Take a look at the original comic strip, too, after you see the film.
