There is a couple who has been together for 78 years. An old man carries out all the housework for his lifelong wife. They make each other smile in everyday lives. The director observes and records the daily life of them for long.
There live a senior couple who have shared their life for 78 years at the foot of Mountain Jiri at an altitude of 600m, at Dancheon village, Hwagae-myeon, Hadong-gun, Gyeongsangnam-do. Husband takes care of all the house chores including clearing a bedpan for his wife with reduced mobility. On a day while they live happily together, wife passes away. Missing wife too much, he loses passion in everything. What makes ''Butterfly'' special is sense of time in it. Focusing on the last days of the senior couple, camera follows the track of their life until the old man looks back upon the past and makes viewers savor the weight of time. When the time alone feels different the time shared with the beloved one, the feeling of absence doubles up lonliness of the old man. [KIM Youngjin]
