    Butterfly Vision, directed by first-time director Maksym Nakonechnyi, tells a compelling story of Lilia, who was for months held as a prisoner of war, and now she struggles to resume her life in Ukraine as a soldier and wife.

Ayala from Sisyfos Film Production (Sweden) acting as co-producers. Butterfly Vision has been supported by the Czech Film Fund with amount of 108,000 EUR.
