It has a wingspan of 10 cm and a body weight of 0.5 g but can fly over 5000 km on its migratory flight every autumn from Canada, where it is born, towards South: it's the monarch butterfly. Narrated by Kristin Scott Thomas, the film follows this amazing insect in a real odissey in which it will be able to fly for 10-km steps per day andperfectly orient itself during its journey to Michoacan, Mexico, where the local population practices a religious cult in its honor. <%YOUTUBE=rXWhXRBpwxM%>
