After a devastating death, can a once-happy family find its way past mutual blame?

Travel through the delights and occasional mishaps of a child’s worldview, tumble into a young adult’s view of her family falling apart and finally land in the world of the grounded woman of today. Her deep understanding of her mother’s love and her own love as a mother embraces her very approach to life, encapsulated like her beloved chrysalis and its emerging butterfly. The resulting pilgimage of self-understanding and acceptance takes the audience on a journey of laughter, music and poignant reflection.
