Top of the Shelf is a 2D animated short film that encompasses both the celebration and loss of one's life. After a lifetime of joyously putting his more than lively books away in a vast library, Dewey both comes toward the end of his life and the last book that must be put away. However, as his books have a hard time coming to the close of Dewey's own story, Dewey faces another problem entirely. 

The last book must be put on the absolute tallest shelf in the entire library. Through trial and error, and a little help from the books themselves, Dewey manages to get to the top of the shelf. It is here that he is rewarded with more than just the satisfaction of putting away the last book. Dewey gets the breathtaking chance to oversee his life's work before the final goodbye.
