With so many invisible barriers to success, a family from Latin America is working to accept Canada as its new home. Seven year old Carol's persistent efforts to pass a swimming test epitomizes the family's struggle to tread water in a new country where its credentials and experience are not recognized. La Mariposa is a heartwarming story of acceptance, perseverance and personal transformation.
