    • Synopsis
    • Set along the diverse, picturesque and ever-changing backdrop of the North American milkweed highway, ‘Butterfly Tale’ is a coming of age animated feature film for the whole family. It’s the heartwarming tale of a loveable yet inept young, one-winged monarch butterfly named Patrick who becomes an unlikely hero when, with the help of his one-time butterfly foe Jennifer, he learns to embrace his differences and triumph over adversity - all while battling the elements, eluding hungry crows and averting certain disaster during the hazardous Monarch migration from Canada to Mexico. It is a tale of adventure, romance and heroism told with humor whose message is that differences are less important than the bonds we share and it is in adversity that our true character shines through.
