Rain or Shine is Nexus’ interactive 360° mobile VR short film made for Google Spotlight Stories. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, there’s a spring in everybody’s step.

It’s a perfect day until Ella steps outside. Everywhere she goes it rains. Rain or Shine follows Ella, who loves being outside in the sunshine, but whenever she puts her sunglasses on all loveliness disappears – her very own raincloud appears above her head and showers her with rain. The story illustrates Ella’s frustration in wanting to enjoy the sunshine, and follows her amusing attempts to dodge the rain.
