Still Life With Iris is a fantastical adventure which centers on a little girl's search for the simplest of things: home. Iris lives with her mom in the land of Nocturno — a magical place in which the workers make, by night, all of the things we see in the world by day. Also, in Nocturno, memories do not reside in people's minds but instead are kept in their coats. The rulers of Nocturno are determined to have the "best" of everything on their island — and therefore take Iris away from her home and bring her to Great Island to be their daughter. To ease the pain of this separation, they remove her Past Coat, leaving her with no memory of her home or her family. All that remains of Iris's past is a single button from her coat. Using the button as a clue, Iris joins with friends she meets on her journey and frees herself from the Great Goods.
