The Butterfly’s Dream (2013)
Mr. Keating said “We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion”. This passion, zeal, fire, angst within us keeps us alive. It draws the tiny line between surviving and living. For centuries, poetry has been an escape for people from the misery of our material world. Muzaffer and Rüştü are our two poets embellishing their difficult lives with the glitter of poetry. It is only poets who can find beauty even in the bleakest moments, be it a coal mine, a war, a disease or a death. The Butterfly’s Dream is an elegant and aesthetic ode to these real-life forgotten poets and many others who lived to write and wrote to live. You will find romance, humor, pain and the best of all, a magnificence that friendship is.
