Eleven-year-old Alex, whose father is a doctor and seaman, is a daydreamer. One day, he receives a strange package holding many cocoons that shortly afterwards turn into shimmering butterflies. The most majestic of them can speak and has magical powers. Alex is so enthralled that he even repudiates Lucy, his best friend, to devote himself to this unique creature who warns him: "If you want to me, you must never leave the window open on the night of a full moon." But Alex forgets his promise just once while celebrating his father's return. He runs to his room, but it is too late: the butterfly has flown away for all time. But there is still Lucy, and Alex discovers that he is capable of accomplishing so much more than he believed possible.

Once upon a time, there was a world where the sun no longer pierced through the thick clouds. Once upon a time there was a city in the desert, living in rhythm with the heartbeat of machines and haunted by invisible motorcyclists. Once upon a time, there were a handful of children who alone, in this world of semi-darkness, had access to a source of light. They collected this light in small ‘‘sunboxes’’ to bring back to life those imprisoned in pictures. Once upon a time, there was a young woman who decided to find the children to help bring her beloved back to life. Beyond imagination, the young light catchers were hiding and reinventing the world so that the sun could shine again.
