A dark and deeply political meditation on life's repeating cycles of violence, this play tells the the tale of a mystery boy who falls from the sky into the muddy, murky and violent world of Jed Senior. On Jed's ranch the swine feed on butterflies, Latvian farmhands run internet scams and power flutters from the barrel of a gun. But the boy's eagerness to learn Jed's etiquette of violence upsets the balance of power, leading to a bloody conflict which leaves no-one on the Butterfly Ranch unscathed.
