We're not crying, YOU'RE crying!

Ok, be prepared for all of the feels, The Present, is an award-winning short film that tells the story of a teenager who hates his disabled three-legged puppy.

Based on a comic strip by Brazilian artist, Fabio Coala Cavalcanti, it's about a teenager whose mum gifts him a puppy, but when the boy finds out the dog only has three legs, he ignores it.

We don't want to spoil the ending, but have a box of tissues ready!

Jacob Frey made the film with Markus Kranzler last year when the pair were students. It's since been shown at 180 film festivals and won over 50 awards with the pair being offered jobs at Walt Disney Studios and Pixar!
