|The Butterfly Lovers (Richard Mills)|
In a famous Chinese legend, doomed lovers find freedom when their spirits transform into butterflies.
Yingtai disguises herself as a boy to pursue an education. When she meets fellow student Shanbo, they become friends. Confused by their growing attraction, they eventually succumb to their love. But Yingtai is destined for an arranged marriage. Only as butterflies can they be together forever.
The Butterfly Lovers is above all else a celebration of love.
