Delta gives a shout out to all the moms who work for the airline in this heartwarming Mother's Day film, which follows various kids of Delta employees on their way to deliver a surprise.

The film, made for Delta by Brooklyn-based Smartypants Pictures, trains cameras on the kids as they travel to different airports to meet their moms (who include a gate operator, an assistant pilot, a stewardess and a marketing manager). On the way, the kids are captured speaking earnestly about their moms in completely authentic (and often hilarious) ways. You'd have to be made of iron not to find it moving when they finally deliver their Mother's Day cards, flowers and hugs.
