In a Heartbeat is a computer-animated short film. It came out in 2017 and I love it so much. The film tells the story of a little boy (Sherwin) who has a crush on another boy (Jonathan).

You can see that Sherwin is really nervous and shy, but his heart isn't! During the video you see Sherwin's heart going crazy when it sees Jonathan.

I'm really happy that people are creating things like this. LGBTQ+ people are still underrepresented in today's media, so this short film is a step in the good direction. The film received many awards and has been shown at numerous LGBTQ events and film festivals - and I'm going to tell you why it made me cry.
-

- First of all, I cry with almost every animated movie, so maybe it's just me.
- How cute is Sherwin's heart? The big eyes, the enthusiastic gestures. How can you not love it?
- So when Sherwin's heart ripped in two, mine kind of did too.
- The sad music doesn't quite help either.
- Jonathan coming outside to comfort Sherwin is super sweet.
