The Butterfly


About the Film:

Close friends for many years, U.S. born Ryan and Catalina, a native Chilean, are involved in a tragic motorcycle accident on the very evening they decide to take friendship to intimacy.  The accident leaves them both searching for meaning in their individual pasts, their relationships with family and, ultimately, their relationship with each other.  Their path of discovery, and closure, is revealed in an epic motorcycle journey they take together from Peru to Santiago Chile, along the same path Catalina took years earlier.

Catalina combines the elements of never-ending love from The Notebook with the adventure of The Motorcycle Diaries and the examination of life and death in The Sixth Sense.
