YouTube channel Fine Brothers Entertainment has already filmed an "Elders React to In A Heartbeat" video, and even a In A Heartbeat Animators React To Elders React To In A Heartbeat. Now we get to watch kids reacting to the short film, and it will give you a lot of warm fuzzy feelings. 

The kids, aged six to thirteen, sit down to watch the short, and they all have a wide variety of responses, from confusion, joy, frustration, and laughter.

"I'm trying not to cry," said 9-year-old Lucas as he watched the boys' love story. 

After the viewing, most of the kids agreed that it was important to share those kinds of stories, one that most of them had never seen on television before. "It goes to show that the heart always gets what it wants." Preach, Sydney!
