Casper is what looks like a naive young man who seems to be unable to even settle a date for himself. However, one day he accidentally arrives in a room with a mirror that reflects back the image of a young woman.
Paul Herbert’s film will take the public on a journey to parallel worlds on the other side of the Sun. His character will confront himself with the price of chasing what he believes to be true love at any cost. On the other side of the Sun things are “upside down” which easily favours the existence of unscrupulous inhabitants. So when Casper, driven by his enthusiasm and his unbridled feelings facilitates his trip to the young woman’s parallel world he will pay for it and get rewarded with feelings of betrayal.
‘The Flight of Iro and Casper’ is a strange Sci-Fi comedy with enough action to keep you entertained and curious about the story’s outcome – which is quite opposite to how one would predict it to end.
Paul Herbert’s characters all wear well defined comedic-masks which despite the inserted humour will need to learn how to face dramatic situations. By the end of the film Casper will learn how to deal with and reign over his emotions and will have learnt a tough lesson about reality.
Paul Herbert’s story is quite unique among short Sci-Fi films we’ve seen so far, managing to “reconcile comedy and drama under the same roof”. Should you arrive home on a tiring evening and feel like stirring up your curiosity, ‘The Flight of Iro and Casper’ will serve you half an hour of good piece of entertainment.
