“Wild Butterflies”

Normally a good girl prone to hiding in her room reading fairy tales or jumping rope with friends, Ten-year-old Corey is baffling everyone by lying and stealing.

Rita’s angry and tired, and tired of it. What does that old man see in her, and why can’t her son just grow up and raise his own child?

Bill’s confused. about his bitter mother, his ex-wife, his estranged and withdrawn daughter and about the beautiful woman he meets one cold snowy morning.

Too caught up in their own dysfunction, anxiety, and drama, neither Rita, Bill, or Cory realizes a monster bigger than loneliness is waiting to strike. Thankfully, love comes to chase away their butterflies.
