Low-level drug traffickers, Nick and Kid, have half a million euros in heroine stashed in an upstate barn. But they also have a debt to pay — to a canny operator named Frank, who suddenly turns up at their hideout looking to collect.
When they don’t pony up, they’re obliged to settle their score with a tense game of Russian roulette — and each round brings up a secret about each person in the room.
Absurd, profane, funny and suspenseful, this short drama would be enjoyable for its top-notch performances and well-paced script. But “The Invisible Man” leverages the unique qualities of VR to create a puzzlebox of a narrative.
How does Frank know where the bullet is? And just who is the “invisible man”? The viewer can explore the immersive image to search out clues — it might take a few views, but the answers are literally all around you.
