What is the Storyline?
Emily Mariposa (Kayla Wallace) is a lepidopterist (a butterfly expert with a scientific name) who operates a thriving company releasing butterflies at marriages and special gatherings. Garrett Thorson (Kevin McGarry), a widow, recruits Emily to help with his daughter Amanda’s (Alyssa Gervasi) birthday party, and the three become friends.
When a well-known—but demanding—socialite hires Emily to launch over a thousand butterflies at her impending wedding, Emily gets the opportunity of a lifetime. Emily has a difficult task, but if she succeeds, she will gain important publicity for her company.
She decides to take it on, and Garrett and Amanda gladly volunteer to help. Emily’s affections for Garrett grow stronger. But his possible move to New York and the reappearance of his ex-girlfriend make her doubt their destiny together. To add to the drama, a parasite threatens the caterpillars they’ve been raising for the wedding. Emily is concerned she won’t be able to fulfill the socialite’s requirement.
