This is a story about a small girl doll whose goal it is to be a ballet dancer. The setting of the story is inside of a doll house which is placed in an old attic. Viewers do not just watch over the story but also pass a feather to her interactively.
The feather is a symbol which implies both ‘Courage’ as well as ‘Encouragement’. It looks white and light, and fluffy. When she confronts some difficulty, a feather appears in front of the viewer.
As she receives a feather from the viewer, she grows up to pursue her goal to be a ballet dancer.
In general, people think that ‘receiving’ creates happiness. Rather, we want viewers to realize that ‘giving’ brings happiness to us.
There are no dialogue or subtitles, so everyone can enjoy the film equally with a VR headset.
