Iris is an edgy neo-noir comedy set in Croatia in the 1990s, in a dark post-war age dominated by tycoons, corruption and war profiteers. Detective Nebojša Šarković really feels like staying at home, but takes a 'small' task: transporting a protected witness to the airport. Naturally, the situation becomes complicated and Šarković finds himself embroiled in a series of bizarre and chaotic situations that feature a bad-tempered and mysterious woman called Iris, two corpses, a police chase, the Hague tribunal, a nun and a burek cheese pie.
