(CBS) - Did you ever have an imaginary friend? Sure, lots of children did. It's a phase many of us go through and then (hopefully) grow out of. But what happens when you stop imagining your imaginary friend? Where to they go? This short film - "An Imaginary Life" - has the poignant answer.

We were all children once, and even though we might be grown up, we still have that person inside us. It's important not to completely lose touch with that part of ourselves. And that's the message of this short. Did your imaginary friend have a name? Do you remember it? They remember yours.
