dystopian future with no wildlife… except a butterfly.

alright, so, there was this movie back in the 90’s, i think. it may have been a tv movie. it starts off with a writer or a director pitching a story to a movie studio about a dystopian future, set in a large metropolitan city where there’s basically no wildlife. the inhabitants of this society all consume various mood-altering drinks, and for some reason being overweight is in style. at some point the main character, a girl, is introduced, and somewhere down the line she comes across someone who has a butterfly in a jar, obviously something she’s never seen before. not realizing or caring for the value of the butterfly, this person accepts a slinky in exchange for the butterfly, and then somehow the movie becomes focused on preserving this butterfly. no clue what it was called, no idea who was in it.

Got something to say?
