This cinematic VR experience utilizes increasing degrees of participant agency and freedom of movement to structure the story of a mother coming to terms with the loss of her estranged son who has died of AIDS. Reading his diary, she finds a way to transcend her grief and herself by imagining him alive and in love. In the climactic scene, her son and his lover perform an intimate dance, filmed with a 3D volumetric video on the largest volumetric capture stage in the world.
