Property and casualty insurance company Travelers has released its first brand campaign since 2015. The four-part ad series tells stories that tug at the heartstrings and remind us about the importance and value of insurance: to protect the things you love and the lives you’ve built around them.

TBWA\Chiat\Day New York tapped Lance Acord of Park Pictures to direct the new campaign which features stories of children growing up, parents growing old and relationships wavering and strengthening along the way—as told through the lens of their love and resilience through life’s unexpected hardships, under the care and protection of Travelers.

In this spot, “Footsteps,” we meet a daughter who sits sketching at the counter of her father’s cafe. The dad reprimands her for drawing pictures when she could be helping with customers. We watch her grow up, the years unfolding through scenes of her exploring her passion, and her father not understanding--until the fire. Fast-forward to her father finding her portfolio of artwork which survived the flames. He now realizes how talented his daughter is.
