The Butterfly Circus
The Butterfly Circus (20 minutes) At the height of the Great Depression, the showman (Eduardo Verastegui) of a renowned circus leads his troupe through the devastated American landscape, lifting the spirits of audiences along the way. During their travels they discover Will (Nick Vujicic), a man without limbs at a carnival sideshow.
This beautiful, touching movie, about a "...man whom God himself has forsaken!" is inspiring as the characters re-frame life's challenges and see the gift that they really give to us.
