Lithuania is proud of its great variety of butterflies. Around 100 species explore the country every year. Marija Stonytė has produced a documentary declaration of love to these magnificent summer birds. Tenderly, a woman breeds butterflies in her flat, observes them pupate, hatch, beat their wings for the first time. Humans keep trying again and again to stage nature for their own purposes. They may ultimately be no more than spectators on cheap seats who witness magic.
