Float like a Butterfly, director Carmel Winters, 2018

“Float Like a Butterfly” is a powerful, timely story of a girl’s fight for freedom and belonging. In a gender-reversal of the classic film “Billy Elliott,” 15-year-old Frances must fight for the right to fight back. Raised in roadside camps in rural Ireland, Frances wants to champion her people inside the boxing ring and out, like her idol Muhammad Ali. But society is determined to break her spirit and destroy her way of life. And her father, once her greatest ally, is too defeated himself to imagine anything better for his daughter. But Frances was not born to be broken. In the mother of all fights, she must dig deep to find in herself the Champion her father once knew her to be.

The film duration is 1 h 44 min.

All films of the Sports and Olympic Film Festival SOFF 2024 will be screened with Estonian and English subtitles at the Elektriteater in Tartu (Jakobi 1).
