THE BUTTERFLY'S DREAM centers on two young poets in the 1940s of Turkey who make a bet on a pretty girl. Whoever's poem the girl likes will win, and the other will step aside. The poets however have to deal with other problems like disease, poverty, compulsory work in the mines and the Second World War in the meantime. As the story unravels, the poets travel through cities and events in search of happiness. Is it the optimist who's the bravest or the pessimist? This story will tell.

THE BUTTERFLY'S DREAM is the end result of a seven-year preparation and work of Yilmaz Erdogan who wrote and directed the film. The film reached an audience of 2.5 million in Turkey and Europe as it was released theatrically in countries like Germany, Denmark and Austria. The poster and trailers for the movie were created by IGNITION. We are in talks with Required Viewing about a possible co-operation for a roadmap for an awards campaign. We aim to do at least 10 screenings in the USA in order to ensure the film community gets to see the movie. We're also applying for a number of film awards.
