Synopsis

This is an adventure story about a hero of prehistoric China. It describes a battle between Shennong, the god-king of Chinese medicine, and a beast from his illusion. Shennong explores a forest, deep in a valley, to collect unknown plants with unique tastes and effects. A glamorous flower seduces him, but when he tastes the petal he gets poisoned. Shennong falls in illusion as the flower turns into a mythical beast, which torches him to his last breath. In the despairing darkness, he is revived by a secret friend. With the awakening’s superpower, he conquers the beast, breaks the illusion and acquires another valuable plant.

Directors’ Statement

The story combines Chinese mythology, an action film and the spirit of a super hero, all within a VR experience. By letting audiences follow the point of view of Shennong, we embrace VR as a revolutionary way to tell a story. We hope you can enjoy the experience!
