Salma Hayek (Traffic) gives a powerful, passionate performance as an idealistic young woman who wages a daring struggle for freedom against a murderous dictator (Academy Award nominee Edward James Olmos) in this moving thriller that, "with brutal simplicity, dramatises the personal toll of political tyranny" (San Francisco Chronicle).

For generations, General Rafael Trujillo (Olmos) has ruled the Dominican Republic with a mixture of terror and savagery...until Minerva Mirabal (Hayek) dares to oppose him. Inspired by her love for a rebel leader (Marc Anthony), Minerva and her sisters - known as Las Mariposas (The Butterflies) - endure unimaginable hardships in a battle for the very soul of a nation. But as their acts of bravery gain notoriety, Trujillo's forces close in, determined to put an end to Minerva's heroics.
