Synopsis
Evelyn views herself as a collector of butterflies, but the reality is somewhat different. Too much time is spent doing domestic chores for Cynthia, whose demands on Evelyn become increasingly unreasonable, verging on the sadistic. Far from resisting, Evelyn relishes performing her duties along with the punishments that come after. Within the delirium of these rituals, there lies a strong code of consent, yet it soon becomes very clear who is the truly dominant character in this relationship.
