The Butterfly's Nightmare

An artist wakes up in the middle of the night in her atelier full of unfinished works and remembers moments of her life: her birth, her childhood and her father’s death. She will have to deal with her wound on her own to free herself from her self-imposed imprisonment.

The story is centred around the loss of her father, victim of the Brazilian drug war, and reveals a process of human metamorphosis.
