Embark on a journey that spans thousands of miles, three countries and several generations -
tracking real monarch butterflies that leave Canada for their mysterious Mexican winter haven.
Based on true events, Flight of the Butterflies 3D follows the extraordinary migration of the
monarch butterfly and the determined scientist, Dr. Fred Urquhart of Toronto, who spent 40
years to unearth where they went each fall. Discover a truly spectacular sight: hundreds of
millions of butterflies in the hidden butterfly sanctuaries high in the mountains of the States of
Michoacán and Mexico.
