Butterfly Caught offers an indulgent peek into the darker side of Hollywood's bright facade, exposing the seduction of fame and capturing the thirst for relevance in a city that cycles through talent and destroys ambitions.
Three aspiring actresses set out to break into the cut-throat world of acting in Los Angeles. Naomi is on the verge of stardom, Joe struggles to keep her head above water, and Elsa is a fresh face on the scene. As each young woman is forced to face her deepest fears and insecurities, they all discover the lengths to which they will go to fight against failure. The promise of Hollywood is tempting, but what will they do when that promise is broken? How will they cope when pushed to their breaking points?
