Iris is a girl who fell in love with her projection and then one day just disappeared in a. It is inspired by the myth of Narcissus. This Greek hero became the first person in the world to conceive of art and the first person to fall in love with an image rather than a reality. That is why this story is about vanity, but also about the perception of art. The motivation behind this movie is to shift the focus to Iris, and then retell the old story from her perspective in the age of social media.
