UTURN is an immersive live-action VR comedy where viewers get to experience both sides of the gender divide in tech. Viewers are placed in the middle of two intertwined stories, one told from a female POV, and the other one from a male POV. Viewers can choose which side of the story to follow at any time, and will only hear the scene they look at through a unique spatial sound design. Whatever they miss changes their perspective on the overall story.
