    Set in 17th century Holland, this creative retelling of the Cinderella story is told from the perspective of an »ugly« stepsister, Iris (played by Azura Skye), who lives with her beautiful but scheming mother, Margarethe (Stockard Channing) and her sister, Ruth (Emma Poole). The family work as servants to a masterful painter named (Jonathan Pryce) who becomes inspired to paint Iris' portrait. Meanwhile a Prince is throwing a ball to search for his bride and a comedy of errors ensues.
