WARNING: Although educational, this production centers around World War II and the holocaust. It is not recommended for children under the age of 10.

Irena, a prisoner of Terezin concentration camp, teaches children when there is nothing to teach with, helps to give them hope when there is little reason for hope, and creates a little world of laughter, of flowers and butterflies behind the barbed wire. Based on the true stories of some of the 15,000 children who passed through the camp, this is a story of how butterflies became a symbol of defiance, making it possible for them to live on and play happily while waiting to be transported.
