A shy, middle school boy who struggles coming to terms with being gay, Sherwin, and the most popular boy in school, Jonathan. When their paths cross one day, Sherwin’s heart pop’s out of his chest to chase after the boy of his dreams. Now, Sherwin must chase after his own heart before it reveals his feelings towards Jonathan, and humiliating him in front of the entire school.

User review:

Sweet animated short about a young man and his heart pursuing the boy they have a crush on. Pixar quality animation but make no mistake it’s not and I don’t believe Disney are “there” yet.

As you can imagine right wingers and the religious would crap bricks if this short ever reached the masses and gained the acclaim it arguably deserves.

Very short and a bit cheesy this is a good effort and honestly if they made a feature length movie about this I’d happily watch it.

It’s not political, it’s not forced and there is no gay “agenda” this people is about one single thing…………
