Storyline

Butterfly is a heartfelt and sensitive drama about the complex relationship between separated parents, Vicky and Stephen, and their division in opinion over how to support their youngest child, Max. From a young age, Max has identified as a girl but has tried to suppress these feelings in an attempt to earn Stephen's approval. When Max's feelings become increasingly distressing, Stephen seizes the opportunity to return to live at the family home, hoping to encourage male bonding and prove himself to Vicky. What unfolds is the greatest challenge and test of love and understanding imaginable. The social transitioning of Max to Maxine is initially thwarted because of the clear division of opinion between Vicky and Stephen. Written by ahmetkozan

17 October 2018 | by lisajuddSee all my reviews

So pleased ITV are showing this at peak time viewing, there is a lack of understanding how and what children and parents feel and go through. Well done for putting a neutral and balanced programme to aid understanding and awareness to all.
