Just after WWII, a young Japanese girl named Cio-Cio-San, known as Madama Butterfly, is faced with the aftermath of trusting and marrying an American naval officer, the reckless, pleasure-seeking B.F. Pinkerton. As Pinkerton’s intentions are revealed, Butterfly’s dreams are destroyed in ways of no return.
