The Birthday Gift: A Fairytale for Adults
Filmmakers, Chad and Amy Leigh Mercree, created “The Birthday Gift: A Fairytale for Adults” to share the positive message that kindness can change the world.
In the short film, Celeste is down on her luck but her thirtieth birthday changes everything. She is suddenly thrust into a supernatural world she never imagined, or asked to be a part of, full of fairies, confusing magic, and her estranged, alcoholic father. As Celeste learns the truth about her past she ends up finding her authentic self.
