'Birth of a Butterfly' is made up of three short dramatic episodes shot in the mountains of North-Western Iran. In an area with a deep connection to the natural world, the characters in each of the parables have their faith tested by the challenges ahead of them. Two children struggle with the burden of responsibility as their father blames them for their mother's illness, an old man and a boy journey to a miraculous spring that is said to cure all ills, and a visiting teacher is hailed as a prophet after his advice yields beneficial results to a remote mountain community. These episodes interweave themes of faith, companionship and the survival spirit, and are directed with aplomb by Mojtaba Raei.
