This is the story of Anita de la Torre, a 12-year-old girl living in the Dominican Republic in 1960. Most of her relatives have immigrated to the United States, her Tio Toni has disappeared, Papi has been getting mysterious phone calls about butterflies, and someone named Mr. Smith and the secret police have started terrorizing her family for their suspected opposition to the country's dictator. While Anita deals with this frightening series of events, she also struggles with her adolescence and her own personal fight to be free.
