It’s Halloween folks, a time for dressing up and spooking each other.

But it’s not all about putting the willies up each other or freaking each other out.

Sometimes it’s all about expressing our trues selves.

And one very talented filmmaker called Alexander Day has produced a special short film which demonstrates that with a shock story that will have you weeping by the end.

In the short clip we see two loving parents get their son and daughter ready for a night of trick or treating.

Dressed as Wonder Woman and Batman, the two wee nippers have the time of their lives darting from house to the next until they have worn themselves out.

The clip ends with the rather foxy dad putting his kids to bed, looking at them while they sleep and whispers “My heroes.”

Why? Well, there is a big twist in the tale, one that will make you blub uncontrollably. So go watch it here.
