Screens daily September 1 – October 31, 2023
Join millions of real butterflies on an amazing journey along with one scientist's 40-year search to unravel the mystery.
Weighing less than a penny, the monarch butterfly makes one of the longest migrations on Earth across a continent to a place it has never known. Follow the amazing migration and the scientific adventure of one man's decades-long search for where the butterflies go each fall — a mystery he solved in 1975 with a remarkable combination of perseverance and good luck.
