When a parent finally tells their child Santa isn't real, how many worms does the can let out?

In the best of times when a lie is revealed to us we can react badly. But Santa, that ones pretty big. Most of us remember just when that awful news was revealed to us.

In this short film, The Talk, an initially well meaning father breaks the news to his little girl.
