It's 1978, New York City. You’re running through a gritty subway station in NYC when WHOOSH! – a graffiti-splattered subway train nearly takes you out. Let punk music fill your ears as your adrenaline peaks!
Welcome to Battlescar - a three-part animated VR film series of 30 minutes, where you dive into the grungy punk world of two teenage runaways: Lupe, voiced by Rosario Dawson, a Puerto-Rican American 16-year-old, and Debbie, a badass with a mysterious past. Lupe needs a home, Debbie wants someone who “gets her,” and together they will form a punk band and take on the city.
