The Other Way of Saying Goodbye

There is a superstition in South Korea that when people die, they become a butterfly and say goodbye to their family members and friends before going back to heaven. I had the following experience when my father passed away, I saw one butterfly coming into the bus where my family members were staying after his funeral. That was unusual behavior for a butterfly, coming into closed space, and I thought that it was my father. The butterfly flew around that space for about two minutes and then left without hesitating. I was curious how many people remember that moment and what was their opinion. Therefore, this documentary began.
