A grandmother’s dying wish becomes the catalyst for healing and forgiveness in a once-divided family. They learn that God works miracles through the unexpected people he puts in our lives.

Dove Review

This is an inspiring movie about waiting to see what God does with the difficult tests and trials we go through. Just as butterflies follow the cocoons, God brings forth gold from the testing of our faith. In this movie, a man named John Archer takes his niece Lila out for ice cream but he receives a phone call when they arrive at the parlor. He sends his niece in by herself, but a robbery is taking place at that exact moment. Tragedy follows and Rachel, Lila’s mother, refuses to forgive John. On top of this, Rachel’s mother is dying of cancer and Rachel feels that she can’t take anymore on her full plate of suffering.

This powerful movie deals with forgiveness and waiting to see how God turns around the hardships of our lives. We are pleased to award “Waiting for Butterflies” our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages twelve plus. This movie will inspire you to wait on your own butterflies!
