Produced by HTC VIVE ORIGINALS and TurnRhino Original Design Studio in 2021, The Sick Rose is the first immersive animation combining VR technology, stop-motion capture and traditional Taiwanese dough-figurine craftsmanship. Audience can get immersed in the hand-made “real scenario” and the storyline by putting on a VR headset.



Rose had a fight with her mother. Feeling sorry for saying hurtful words, Rose is determined to apologize to her mother who is currently working at the hospital. However, as the pandemic around her escalated, the way to the hospital has become dangerous and difficult. Would Rose, a sick little girl who does not know her way, be able to reunite with her mother?
