Watch: A Short Film About a Treehouse That's Guaranteed to Make You Cry

Oct 01, 2014

Grab a box of tissues, and get ready for a good cry. Sam Shapson and A.J. Sheeran’s short film The Treehouse is an emotional sci-fi-tinged tale that is sure to tug at the heartstrings. Matt and Angela share a tragic past, and both neighborhood kids want to see their mothers again. But it takes Angela’s intergalactical solution to help Matt come to a greater place of understanding. 

The story is transformed from a tale of loss into a tale of empathy. The Treehouse is a real passion project, funded through Kickstarter and the filmmakers’ own savings. They made the short during university several years ago, but it’s just now finding its way online. The movie is touching enough on its own, but we could totally see someone picking this one up for a feature-length fantasy film that would really resonate with today’s kids (OK... and adults). Let us know what you think of The Treehouse.
