The greater the struggle, the more glorious the triumph.”


The Butterfly Circus is a 20 minute short film, dreamed up and directed by a husband and wife duo. They truly did a great job, as evidenced by the film’s numerous awards and the fact that the film is now in the process of becoming a major motion picture. The story is set in the Great Depression, when roaming circuses and sideshows featuring “freaks of nature” were commonplace. Amidst a business that aims to exploit human beings for profit comes the Butterfly Circus, led by showman Mendez. They “run a different show”, a show that honors its performers and inspires the audience.

Our family has probably watched it at least 4 or 5 times, because we keep showing it to friends and families that come over for dinner. The story is truly inspiring, and analogies between Mendez and our Heavenly Father are clear. Smile

If you haven’t seen the short film, I encourage you to watch it online!
