Four Wings and a Prayer is a visually rich and exciting new documentary about one of the world's most beautiful and mysterious creatures: the Monarch butterfly. Nowhere in nature is there a more powerful mix of scientific marvel, awesome beauty, and epic struggle for survival.
This documentary, shot in stunning High Definition video, is a journey into the Monarch's secret and fascinating world. We will visit the spectacular locations it calls home, meet its friends and enemies (including humans in both camps), and fly with it on one of the most inspiring migratory odysseys imaginable.
