"Blue Butterflies Trailer" a new short film from 4th Street Park Productions.
Faith's life has been filled with pain. The hustle of the world would pass before her, but when she escaped to the beach and closed her eyes, her troubles would disappear. During those moments, Faith hoped that when she re-opened her eyes, she would be transformed in some way that would allow her to face her inner demons with whom she struggled for so long. One day, while escaping into her place of tranquility, she attracts the attention of a young, unassuming man, Austin. He is immediately captivated and decides to partake in Faith's unusual ritual. After a brief conversation, she opens her eyes and her transformation begins.
Faith continues her ritual and is continuously taken back to those fond childhood moments on this beach with her mother. Something draws her to Austin, but it is an unfamiliar feeling. He continues to ask questions in an attempt to discover what she is hiding behind her smile. Before she departs, she secretly leaves Austin with something that will touch him in a way that no one has ever done before.
Both return to their separate lives. Like a butterfly taking flight into a new life after being confined to a cocoon, Faith and Austin leave the old world behind. Austin searches for rejuvenation. Faith searches for resurrection. She toils over the decision to commit suicide. Before she met Austin, life was a journey that had come to an end. Now, she struggles to find a reason to die.
