Set inside their home, a beloved hatchback, Pearl follows a girl and her dad as they crisscross the country chasing their dreams. It’s a story about the gifts we hand down and their power to carry love. And finding grace in the unlikeliest of places.
Directed by Academy Award winner Patrick Osborne, and produced by Google Spotlight Stories, Pearl is also available for mobile at youtube.com/gss. Google Spotlight Stories is where storytelling and VR meet. We are artists and technologists creating immersive stories for mobile, Cardboard, and VR headsets, and the innovative tech that makes them possible.
Viewing instructions: For the best experience, place a swiveling desk chair near the center of your area, put on your best headphones, sit down and enjoy the show. Vive controllers are not needed.
