In a Turkish village, three siblings who neither know each other nor anything about their late father, wait to bury his body. As they start to find out more about their father and each other, they also start to learn more about themselves.
The film has screened and won prizes at many esteemed film festivals including the World Cinema Dramatic Grand Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival. Director Tolga Karacelik is a guest of this year’s Stockfish festival so there will be special Q&A screenings of the film.
“Tolga Karacelik’s bittersweet Sundance prizewinner sets up a familiarly dysfunctional family reunion, only to make several surprising switches in tone.”

“Butterflies’ is a “director-driven crowd pleaser,” Simon said, calling it “a funny and very emotional road trip influenced by U.S. independent film.”
