Wonderful Short Film
7 February 2012 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

It is a wonderful short film. You could relate to each character's emotions as the story played out. Many families across the world could relate to the pain the family was feeling as well as the stress this pain put on all of them.

In addition, it showed you the true nature of a ferret as a pet (unconditional love and friendship). Showed you how much enjoyment a ferret can bring to your life even in the worse of times since they are nature's little clowns. I also enjoyed watching Jasper play throughout the movie.

The way the movie ended also allowed you to see the new path of the family, but also left room for a full length movie or TV series to take over.
