Title:Light Hearted

Centered around a very serious subject of Cardiomyopathy, the short film is a perfect example and balance of emotions, dialogues, and graphics. His heart, unlike most others, can't deal with surprises, and boom! He ends up jumping out of his window in an attempt to escape from his house. What was he escaping from, and could he survive this near-death experience?
