OPIS FILMU: Samotna Ann (Barbara Steele) mieszka w stylowym apartamencie. Jest surową matką, która na każdym kroku kontroluje swoją dorosłą córkę. Zbiera oprawione w ramki motyle. Życie skrytej Ann wzbudza ciekawość małej Alice (Julia Putnam), która mieszka po sąsiedzku. Dziewczynka zaprzyjaźnia się z miłośniczką motyli. Jednak kiedy Ann odkrywa, że Alice ją oszukuje, reaguje bardzo agresywnie. Reżyser Jonathan Zarantonello jest również twórcą scenariusza, który powstał na kanwie jego własnej powieści „Alice Dalle 4 Alle 5”.

PLOT: Ann, a reclusive elegant lady, with an obsession for butterflies, is surprisingly befriended by the eerily beautiful young Alice. Using her seductive innocence, Alice establishes a disturbing mother daughter relationship with Ann. Lured into her twisted world, Ann soon discovers that she is not the only recipient of the girl’s affections. Ann uncovers the truth; Alice takes advantage of lonely older women by using her childish and sweet demeanor in exchange for money. Enraged by Alice’s facade and the other women partaking in a relationship with the young girl, Ann murders her mother as well as another woman who often gifted Alice nice things.

Confronted by Alice’s other lady friends, Ann’s shock awakens a dark, hidden past, unchaining a spiral of madness: a series of brutal and bizarre crimes that Ann will have to commit to preserve her harmless and deceptive appearances. The only one who recognizes there’s something unsettling about Ann, is nine-year-old Julie, her next door neighbor’s daughter.

With the inevitable curiosity of a child, Julie begins to explore the corners of Ann’s apartment, discovering a dark secret hidden in the walls of the forbidden butterfly room.

No one believes what she’s seen except for Ann’s estranged daughter Dorothy. Horrified, she realizes that the fate of the young girl lies in her hands. To save both Julie, and herself, she must summon up the courage to confront an evil that has haunted her for years.
