Plot

From the producers of 'Once' and 'Sing Street', comes 'Float Like a Butterfly', an Irish story that tells the story of Frances (Hazel Doupe), a gender-reversal of the character of Billy Elliot, who (literally) fights against the stereotypes. Her small-town society is not prepared for this apparent abnormality, and her father no longer supports her like he once did. However, Frances was not born to be broken and fights to win her father's approval by becoming a champion. It was written and directed by Carmel Winters ('The Snap').
