IRIS, LENA AND MAYA
A set of three short screenplays that follow three young girls as they make small but important discoveries based around the themes of being open: opening ones eyes or opening oneself to others. Iris has to make it through the last of her school field trips by passing time with her over active imagination and ignoring her peers and zealous teacher. Lena, a 17-year-old (going on 34) independent young woman, has her orderly life disrupted when she’s saddled into babysitting her toddler nephew and, in the process, learns to rely on family. And finally, recently finished with her freshman year at college, Maya returns home to her old group of friends and has to come to terms with the nature of their friendship.
