One of the most touching Pixar animated shorts created by Canada’s finest, Domee Shi. The film is about a Chinese-Canadian mother, suffering from empty nest syndrome, who gets a second chance at motherhood. Plot aside, with the CN tower being seen in the background or the Canadian flag magnet on the fridge how can you not be a proud Canadian watching this?
