A feminist meditation on the violent struggle for independence in southeast Asia and butterfly metamorphosis. Framed by excerpts from Sylvia Plath's poem "Tulips," A Partial History of the Natural World, 1965, reminds us that comfort is a privilege and denial of the suffering of others is not an option.  With a live 1965 performance of Bartok's Solo for Violin 3.
