Curtis Kam posted this on another site, and it is so charming I wanted to repost it here. If you have a love of coin magic, and understand what it means to pay it forward, you need to watch this amazing animated short by DreamWorks.

That was wonderful, I enjoy the story, the message and of course the coin magic, which is very accurate (that retention to nowhere palm ^^)

About the toss and catch during a steeplechase, I devised a way to do it (at 0:23 in the clip) because I was looking for a flourish to close the steeplechase :)

This link seems to take you to the 1 minute trailer for the animated short.

The full short video is about 7-1/2 minutes.

Apparently, it's now streaming exclusively on Peacock (I read this on the Dreamworks Animation page on Facebook).

However, some people have put the full video onto Facebook. Here's one link to the full video.

I think you should be able to watch it, even if you don't have a Facebook account.

P.S. Here are a couple more videos about the film, "To: Gerard":
