SYNOPSIS

Butterfly is the coming of age story of a young woman who invests her entire youth in one objective - only to see it crash and burn in front of her. Irma Testa becomes Italy’s first female boxer to ever make it to the Olympics and the Italian media goes crazy with her story: a girl raised in one of the poorest, Camorracontrolled areas of Naples who reaches international stardom at just 18 years old. Her success though brings out fragilities, and when she gets eliminated early at the Games in Rio, she questions some of her basic life choices. Irma tries to chart her own future, but is forced to take a hard look at herself first.
