About Float Like a Butterfly

From the producers of Once and Sing Street, Float Like a Butterfly is a powerful and timely story of a girl’s fight for freedom and belonging.  Some people say it doesn’t matter whether you win or lose. But for Frances (Hazel Doupe) losing is not an option – at stake is her own freedom, her mother’s honour and her father’s faith.  This unmissable multi award-winning Irish film shot in West Cork is about championing the underdog and features stellar performances from an outstanding cast, including rising star Hazel Doupe.
