The flapping of a butterfly can change everything.
Your family, your future.
But nothing can alter your desire.
An exquisitely playful film exploring the shifting boundaries of friendship and the inevitability of love, Mariposa (Butterfly) is the seventh feature by acclaimed Argentinean director Marco Berger, whose award-winning credits include Plan B and Absent.
A butterfly flaps its wings, and Romina's universe is divided into two parallel realities:
Flap. Abandoned as a newborn baby, at age sixteen she and her adoptive brother German, despite powerful feelings for each other, know their relationship cannot become a physical one.
Flap. Romina and German are drawn to each other as friends, their awkward, adolescent relationship threatening to turn towards something more emotionally fulfilling.
Their story alternates between realities, building up an awkward tapestry of endless possibilities...
