Description

A narrated extract from 'Speed Surf' by Michael Coleman where the main character's distress in the Atlantic Ocean is described using emotions and senses. We then discover he has been wearing a virtual reality headset. The description of the scene is convincing and this comes as a surprise to the audience.
