In a lawless world overrun by roving ships and ruthless men, a girl propels herself from a life of forced prostitution, into one of piracy.
Living the pirate's life is easier said than done. One has to somehow survive living in close quarters with a bunch of unruly male pirates, deal with the Qing Dynasty authorities ' decision to clear the coast of pirates, in order to establish their own power over the local population and last but not least , contend with almost constant seasickness.
It turns out, our heroine took it all on and ended but becoming the most successful pirate in history.
They called her Cheng I Sao, though history, mostly forgot about her and her exploits.
We made an immersive VR experience mixing animation and live action to bring the extraordinary story of Cheng I Sao to a modern audience.
