At a train station floating in the cloud, a mysterious red tail catches the boy’s attention. Chasing the red tail, the boy has traveled through countless magical places, ran into the bizarre creatures, and finally he meets the gentleman, who seems to know his secrets more than he does. When the red tail reminds the boy of his own memory and sadness, what’s the secrets hiding behind, and where will it lead him next?
During the period of growing from children to adults, numerous struggles happen. Teenagers are eager to be understood, while the physical changes of their bodies are easy to be noticed, the dramatic inner transformations are often ignored. Through this VR work, I would like to let the viewers know: We all have red tails, as pain is a part of growing up. Let’s enjoy our lives with tears and laughter, and we’ll all become a better self.
