Chasing A Butterfly
This is a film about post-Soviet Russia seen through the eyes of the filmmaker, as she returns to her home town (Vladivostok, Russian Far East) after a decade of absence with the intention of resettling there. Unusual places, unusual characters, unusual ways-about, unusual mentality becomes a colorful and contrasting carousel of her welcome-home. And she comes to the realization that there is no place for her in this drastically changed country. She decides to sell her apartment and come back to New York. The symbolic butterfly of fulfillment and happiness she was trying to find there lives neither in Russia or New York, but within.

If what happened in Vladivostok is typical of all of Russia, then it appears that both Russia and the United States have been robbed blind by the globalists who chase down cheap labor and lax environmental standards all over the world.
Hard to chase down the butterfly of happiness in an abandoned post-industrial wasteland. The contrast between public poverty and private wealth is striking. This documentary ends in tears. Literally.
