On November 25, 1960, the bodies of three sisters were found near the bottom of a cliff on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. The official daily 'El Caribe' reports that it had been an accident, but it does not mention that a fourth sister lives. Nor does it mention the sisters' fierce opposition to the General Trujillo's dictatorship. This is their story: how Minerva started the tragedy by refusing Trujillo; how Patria became an opponent from the church itself; how Maria Teresa joined the revolution through the love. And how they lost their wings, but not their courage. They were Las Mariposas - "The Butterflies". Written by

Seems like it was written by someone without film schooling, or even kidergarten education. It has the need to remind us of how bad was Trujillo in every moment of the picture: No imagination, no intelligence, an insult to any educated viewer.
The acting is poor, someone even confused Marc Anthony with an actor, a recognized actress like Lumi Cavazos (Like Water for Chocolate) was given aproximately four lines in the entire movie, characters are non-existent, a butterfly would have more depth.
A portrayal of the horrors of that era deserves an infinitely better film.
