An eleven-year-old girl and her incestuous stepfather. Two star-crossed lovers. A strung-out drug addict. A struggling single parent. An aspiring ballet dancer. A single young woman. A loving middle-aged married couple. All embodied in one woman. Revealing the evolution of Alexander Scott. Bold and stimulating, Butterfly Uprising takes a provocative, uncompromising look at the metamorphosis of one woman's life in multiple dramas. Plunging headlong into the distinct fusion of heartfelt tribulations, this gripping emotional drama spans the resilient existence of a multi-troubled woman's struggles to overcome her stumbling blocks as they careen in and out of her life. In the gray areas between blaming others and self-destruction, the victimized and the perpetrator, there are no easy answers. Comedic, triumphant, and always unforeseeable, Butterfly Uprising creatively correlates the developmental stages of a butterfly through the maturation of Alex and uncovers our inner ability to prevail through undeniable grace. Butterfly Uprising tells interlocking stories of incest, infidelity, divorce, domestic violence, and drug addiction, the highs and the lows, the peaks and valleys, all these experiences embodied in the lifetime of one woman. Lesser crisis claim lives every day, leaving victims of shame and torment. Sometimes, yes, they rise above it, although it is never this simple. Their unrealized transformation may be in vain, their realized transformation may be life changing, and who knows what heights they can reach.
