A first official look at Float Like a Butterfly, the upcoming Irish drama movie directed by Carmel Winters and starring Hazel Doupe, Dara Devaney, Aidan O’Hare, Lalor Roddy, Hilda Fay
“Teenage Irish Traveler Francis (Hazel Doupe) lost her mother in a fight. The same fight which led to her father being locked up in jail for the last ten years. Francis has never forgiven the police sergeant who she feels is responsible for this. She’s got fighting in her blood, just like her idol Muhammad Ali inspiring her to be the Greatest.
When her father gets out of jail, Francis is starry-eyed. Together they can take on the world. But her father doesn’t turn out to be the hero she remembers. Required to keep the peace due to the conditions of his parole, he’s forced to endure humiliation from the police sergeant, much to Francis’ horror. And to make up for lost time, he is determined to make a man of his son and an obedient wife of his daughter.
Francis never wanted to clash with her beloved father, but when he forces her to give up her dream of boxing and behave like a ‘lady’, she is left with no choice. Cast out by the world and her family alike, Francis must fight even for the right to fight. Some people say it doesn’t matter whether you win or lose. But Francis knows that losing is not an option. This is a fight she has been training for all her life. And she knows, the only way she can end this war is to win it.”
