BLUE BUTTERFLY is the story of a young family grappling with demanding careers, an abnormal child, and fundamental forces of nature. Natalie and Simon are struggling scientists who have turned to TEDx talks and TV to thrust their research into the spotlight, while their brilliant but dangerous seven-year-old daughter gravitates towards her grandmother's mystical beliefs. Their research into cancer, parasitism, and maternal-fetal immunology echoes the complex dynamics of a family blind to their own dysfunction.
When life spirals into crisis, we must ask ourselves: what do we want to believe?
