What would you do if you could have time alone with someone who may have killed a member of your family? Gravitas Venture’s Goodbye, Butterfly asks that question – when a father finds a man that might be responsible for the murder of his 5-year-old daughter. The only thing is… nobody else is one hundred percent sure the person he blames is the one responsible.
The synopsis for Goodbye, Butterfly goes like this:
Ryan Olsen is a loving family man with the perfect life… until the day his five-year-old daughter is murdered. When the official police investigation hits a dead end, Ryan has a chance encounter with Stan Granger, an oddball neighbor from down the street, and becomes convinced that Stan is the killer. But, after the police ignore his suspicions, Ryan’s obsession with Stan quickly turns violent and, as he takes the law into his own hands, he must ultimately decide how far he’s willing to go in order to find out the truth.
As you can see from the trailer below, things get sort of mixed up in the morality department. It looks to happen when the question is raised about the man’s guilt. I always dig these take the law into your own hands films. It really does allow your own morality to co-star in the narrative. I mean, what would you do?
Goodbye, Butterfly arrives theatrically and on VOD beginning January 15.
