    A momentary act of violence caught on camera destroys the lives of three people. Now they need to tell us their version of how it really went down. Jordan is a quiet, nerdy, almost eighth-grade graduate. Leela, bubbling and following her passion, has just opened her own clothing boutique near Jordan’s school. And Daniel is an awkwardly sweet police officer on foot patrol in the neighborhood. The three of them lead us through their lives, dreams and the snap decisions that led them to that fateful moment.

    Two neighbors live side-by-side in Texas. A low fence separates their gardens, but much more divides them. One grows flowers; the other raises vegetables. One was born in the US, the other in Mexico. One speaks English, the other Spanish. Their differences have kept them so far apart that even the arrival of a caterpillar causes disagreement—until the resulting mariposa/butterfly, and its eventual departure, unites them in wonder, sadness and a new understanding of the beautiful world they share.
