Every Autumn, fifty million tiny Monarch butterflies fly a mind-blowing 5,000 kilometers from the Great Lakes of Canada to their winter sanctuaries in the Oyamel forests of Central México, only to be confronted by deteriorating ecosystems along the way. "Papalotzin" is a nature documentary about the extraordinary adventure of pilot Vico Gutierrez, who in an ultra-light plane decorated as a Monarch butterfly, follows the Monarchs's journey with the goal of increasing awareness about the challenges they face and along the way meets passionate people dedicated to protect this migration for future generations. Papalotzin ensures an unforgettable visual journey through microscopic animations, ancient legends and spectacular aerial shots of Canada, the United States and Mexico that will inspire us all to take action in the conservation of this incredible butterfly.
