This animated short film is based on the true story of a little girl in Brazil who visited an orphanage with her mother to bring gifts to the children living there. Her yellow umbrella stirs memories for one little boy of a life and loved ones now lost to him. The revealing of his story touches the little girl, teaching her empathy and kindness. She gives him a gift from her heart that he grows up to repay with his own acts of kindness.

    Thank you! This was beautifully conceived and brought to life. Thought provoking, wonderfully conveyed through exceptional animation. Nothing is worth anything if not used to make someone else happy.

    I cannot remember a time when something has touched my soul so deeply that the tears flowed throughout this beautiful short film. I will be sharing.

    The beautiful way his tears became the memories when it landed on the paper and how it flowed from moment to moment a story of loss, love and longing. When every tightly-held treasure becomes a gift again, when it is given away! Truly beautifully done down to the very detail. I will share it with my family tonight.
