Tokyo. A teenage girl jumps in front of a subway train. Her soul rises from the tracks. On the platform, the witnesses to the scene are in a state of shock. It has awoken a traumatic memory in each of them. A painful memory, that plays out again and again. To end its wandering, the soul must pass into each of their minds, delve into their memories, and help them find peace.
7 lives is an interactive VR tale that tells the odyssey of a soul, standing between the living and the deads. In this dreamlike experience, users go from a dimension to another and explore spaces that usually remain invisible. Taking root in Japan and shinto, 7 lives arouse an imagination shared by a whole generation, inspired by japanim and mangas. The narrative yet has a true universal dimension through the very contemporary notions of trauma and resilience.
