Obsessed by the memory of a past love, a woman takes refuge in the contemplation of butterflies that seem to populate a mysterious forest. In the grip of a complex feeling of bittersweet nostalgia, she brings together daydream and reality, fantasy and frustration, pleasure and pain. Believing she is escaping reality, the woman actually confronts it and unconsciously prepares for a rebirth. Shadow of the Butterflies is a beautifully animated mediation on life and love.
