Miss Butterfly

Shadi Ghadirian

Miss Butterfly as is going to meet the sun, looking for a way out and reaching for the light becomes captive in spider’s web. The spider moved by compassion after observing all the grace and delicacy in Miss Butterfly, comes to an agreement with her. She is supposed to bring one of the insects from the dark cellar and ties it up in spider’s web for him. Instead the spider is going to lead her to the way out and to the light. But after hearing the insects’ stories the Miss Butterfly feels pity for them and eventually returns to the spider empty handed with injured wings and makes herself captive in the web to the spider’s food. Knowing the truth, the spider sets the Miss Butterfly and shows her the way out to meet the sun. The Miss Butterfly recalls all the other insects in the cellar to share her freedom with them but she gets no response. She who is so frustrated by their reaction wide opens her weary wings and flies toward the sun.
