Whim­si­cally dressed in a homemade but­ter­fly cos­tume, Renée re­calls the beauty of a tiger swal­low­tail from her idyl­lic child­hood in Hun­gary and the hor­rors that fol­lowed when her fam­ily was sent first to the ghet­tos and later to Auschwitz dur­ing the Holo­caust. Renée’s fam­ily shares the story, based on real-life events, of how she was able to re­main hope­ful by play­ing mu­sic and fol­low­ing flut­ter­ing wings in her imag­i­na­tion, draw­ing com­fort from the but­ter­fly’s meta­mor­pho­sis.
