Miyubi is a 40-minute virtual reality comedy about a Japanese toy robot - inhabited by you, the viewer - gifted to a young boy on his birthday in 1982 suburban America. Over the course of a year, as the boy’s family fractures apart, you experience love and your inevitable obsolescence in an intimate, hilarious and endearing interactive story.
