In a world where people’s hearts are on the outside and exhibit the qualities of a pet, Mary loses her lovable Skip only to rediscover herself and learn what it truly means to ‘follow your heart.’

A really cute fairytale. The idea of metaphorizing the heart as a pet, with all the consequences of being heartbroken set as the pet being ill, is brilliant. It is also amazing the idea of following your heart represented as the “pet-heart” being lost after a new love. Everything is great in this short film: the story, the animation, the colors, the music, the changing in the mood. FOLLOW YOUR HEART will make you happy, sad, and then happy again. Just lovely.
