Iris is a girl who fell in love with her own reflection and one day disappeared in the bathtub. Inspired by the Narcissus myth. This Greek hero has become the first person in the world to comprehend art and the first person to fall in love with an image rather than the reality. His is hence a story about vanity, as well as about the perception of art. The motivation of this film is to refocus on the female character, Iris, and to retell the old story from her point of view in the social media era.
