A film full of macabre humour, centred around two extraordinary women. Eunice, unpredictable and highly dangerous, paces the highways of the North of England in search of Judith, the only person who has ever loved her. She meets Miriam, a sad and solitary soul whose life is selling gas, looking after her aged and unstable mother and eating pot noodles in front of the tele. She has never met anyone like Eunice before - Eunice is funny, impulsive, passionate - and wild. Miriam is intoxicated, an emotion she has never felt, and is consumed.Eunice tests Miriam\'s love, time after time, as they travel together in search of Judith. Even when Eunice turns out to be a murderess the naive Miriam believes she can save her friend. The challenge is can Miriam make Eunice good before Eunice makes Miriam bad? BUTTERFLY KISS is the story of a tender and disturbing relationship that will stay with you.
