Juan Pablo and the Butterflies

May 2017

Juan Pablo lives in El Rosario, Mexico’s butterfly sanctuary, where millions of winged creatures gather together in one magical place. He loves his music, the butterflies, and his grandmother, who has fallen fatally ill --- which is why he can’t leave, even when a nefarious drug cartel overtakes the town. But the threat of the cartel becomes ever more menacing, finally endangering the life of his best friend Rocio, the girl he loves. In a heroic act of desperation to save her, Juan Pablo poisons eight members of the cartel. Together, Juan Pablo and Rocio flee, following the instructions his grandmother gave before she passed away: Follow the migration of the butterflies, where someone will be waiting for you.
