    Drama

    A butterfly, a creature symbolising rebirth and a new beginning, epitomises Romina's and Germán's world, a world that consists of two parallel realities. In one of them they grow up as siblings who desire each other and try to give shape to their love without sexual fulfilment; in the other they are a young man and woman who form an awkward friendship instead of succumbing to their feelings for each other. Germán finds himself in a discordant relationship with Mariela. Mariela’s brother is interested in Bruno. Bruno is with Romina, but wants to be with Germán. Playfully alternating between these two realities, the lovers find themselves drawn into ever new couplings in order to explore their intuitive feelings – cautiously, but at the same time prepared to lose everything.

    I love actors. For me, cinema is actors and script. I always look for good actors and clever people.

    Marco Berger (Argentina, 1977) studied at the Universidad del Cine in Buenos Aires and made his directorial debut in 2007 with the short films UNA ÚLTIMA VOLUNTAD and EL RELOJ. His first feature film was PLAN B, which was presented on a number of film festivals (Buenos Aires, Rome, London). But it was with the film ABSENT that he won the Teddy Award at the Berlin IFF. It was followed by HAWAII and BUTTERFLY, which premiered at the Berlinale Panorama.
