Description by OLDIES.com:
For generations, General Rafael Trujillo (Edward James Olmos) has ruled the Dominican Republic with a mixture of terror and savagery...until Minerva Mirabal (Salma Hayek) dares to oppose him. Inspired by her love for a rebel leader (Marc Anthony), Minerva and her sisters -- known as Las Mariposas (The Butterflies) -- endure unimaginable hardships in a battle for the very soul of a nation. But as their acts of bravery gain notoriety, Trujillos forces close in, determined to put an end to Minerva's heroics.
General Rafael Trujillo (Edward James Olmos) is in the midst of his dictatorial grip over the people of the Dominican Republic. Minerva Mirabal (Salma Hayek) and her two sisters--collectively known as Las Mariposas (The Butterflies)--attempt to take down the vicious ruler with the help of a small rebel faction. This stirring drama documents the adversity the sisters face in trying to overthrow the murderous Trujillo regime and bring freedom to their nation.
