Synopsis

Viewers are invited as a main character into a haunting fairytale world completely reimagined, and their choices determine the ending of this story of love, fortitude and magic. Sometimes a force for evil, sometimes a force for good, the enigmatic witch Baba Yaga uses her powers to stop the villagers whose settlement encroaches upon her enchanted forest. When the viewer’s mother, the village chief, falls deathly ill, it is up to them and their sister Magda to do the unthinkable – enter the forest, uncover its hidden mysteries and get the cure from Baba Yaga. Ultimately, every decision the viewer makes matters… even whether humanity and nature can live in balance.

Directors’ Statement

We sought to create our most ambitious work to date by exploring the idea of courage: not the lack of fear, but taking action despite our fear. We invite viewers to step inside this meticulously handcrafted fairytale. Using the fullest expression of VR, we hope they will not only see our world differently, but truly become part of it.
