Yeah, it’s true that people nowadays are more moved towards 5D or 7D animation but some 2D animated movies still have the same impact on the audience like this one, “If Anything Happens I Love You”. As the name of the movie is so intriguing, the storyline is equally amazing and well portrayed.

It’s about a pair of parents grieving about their daughter’s death in a shooting at the school. Soon after the death of their daughter, they both stopped talking to each other and isolated themselves. Once when both the parents visited their daughter’s room to look at her toys and stuff and were crying out of sadness, a shadow appeared out from the record player.

That shadow takes the parents back on the ride of their daughter’s life journey, how she grew, how she developed a love for soccer, and how on her last day the parents were telling her not to go to school but couldn’t stop her. That day she got shot and died with her final text “If anything happens I love you”. The story unites the parents and leaves everyone in tears.
