Virtual Motion is a live-action cartoon, post-minimalist rock opera. Its jigsaw-puzzle narrative has a tragic love story at its heart, half sung and half lip-synched, and the score weaves together live instrumentals, electronic samples and sound effects. A man and a woman fall desperately in love, but are terrified to tell each other. At work, they collaborate on the creation of an underwater virtual-reality simulation. After a fearful, tortured courtship, they finally express their love for each other but their problems do not end after the epiphany.
