Macy’s 2017 holiday advertising campaign kicks off with this two-minute anthem titled “Lighthouse” which tells the story of two children, and their families, being brought together by the perfect gift. 

This tug-at-the-heartstrings tale--which has the lad reaching out to a girl who recently lost her mother--was directed by Steve Ayson of MJZ for BBDO New York.

The two-minute piece is being shown online, while :60 and :30 versions will run both on TV and online.
