In Chick-fil-A’s first animated film, we meet Sam, a child eager to spend quality together time with her family. Thanks to a wise Timekeeper she encounters on her journey, she’s able to find the time with her family she’s been longing for.

Cute and very short, THE TIME SHOP is a short film made by the American company Chick-fil-A as a spot/Christmas special, alongside many others. In this animated short we follow Sam’s holidays with her busy family: nobody wants to spend time with her, they are all busy with anything else. But then, when she has given up, two magical cats (named Tick and Tock… as the clock’s sounds!) show up and bring her to the Timekeeper. Along with wasted time and time that flies, she finds together time, which she takes and gifts to her family back home: thanks to this Christmas magic, they are finally able to stay together and enjoy each other’s company. Sweet and heartwarming, with cute animation stile and a good rhythm. Could be interesting seeing the story, or the concept of the Timekeeper at least, developed in something slightly longer!

Happy New Year from Short Is Worth.
