For 30 years, President Trujillo’s iron fist of authoritarianism tightened around the throat of the Dominican Republic. But the people would not be crushed, they would not be silenced. As the revolution grew, so too did our butterflies—the Mirabal sisters. Four girls we see grow into women. Four women with deep love for their family and their country. Four revolutionaries, with only one left alive to bear witness, to speak out loud of the joy and laughter, terror and violence that shaped a nation and its people.

Ages: 15 +

Content Warning: imprisonment, gun violence, parent death, child death, rape, sexual violence, war/violent revolution, murder, torture, graphic descriptions of violence/gore, misogyny, gaslighting, emotional abuse.
