In a Heartbeat is a short animated film about Sherwin, a shy middle school kid, and Jonathan, the most popular kid in school.
These boys cross paths one day and Sherwin does everything he can do to keep his heart from revealing how he feels to Jonathan and the rest of their classmates.
“Hopefully it’ll resonate with those who identify with this character — and for those who don’t, we hope they’ll gain an understanding for people who go through this experience.” – the filmmakers previously told HuffPost.
In a Heartbeat doesn’t even need dialogue. It’ll give you the feels with its music and animation alone.
It’s a relatable story of someone struggling with their same-sex attraction, the humiliation those feelings can bring, and the realization that sometimes your crush might just share the same feelings you’re holding inside.
