On a deserted mountain road in the Dominican Republic in 1960, three young women from a pious Catholic family were assassinated after visiting their husbands, who had been jailed as suspected rebel leaders. The Mirabal sisters, thus martyred, became mythical figures in their country, where they are known as Las Mariposas (the butterflies).
Here, each of the sisters speaks in her own voice, beginning as young girls in the 1940s. The subjects of their stories vary from hair ribbons to gun-running to prison torture. The narrative is framed by the surviving sister, who tells her own tale of suffering and dedication to the memory of Las Mariposas.
