“The only way to catch a miracle is to believe in it.”
Here’s what the distributor says about their film: A terminally ill boy has one dying wish: to catch the most beautiful butterfly on Earth.
With his brain cancer reaching the terminal phase, Pete, a ten-year-old boy, takes refuge in observing the world of the insects. His biggest wish is to capture the blue Morpho, a butterfly found in the tropical forests of Central and South America. Pete asks his idol, the entomologist Alan Osborne, to help him carry out his dream. At first flat out refusing, the scientist reconsiders after Pete’s mother pleads with him. The three of them fly to Costa Rica, but the season of blue Morpho is drawing to a close and Alan and Pete only have a few days to capture a specimen.
