Night butterfly is the latest Indonesian web series to grab viewers’ attention recently. The series stars Michelle Ziudit, Kenny Austin, Rizki Nazar and Luqman Sardi.
Night butterfly tells the story of Laura (Michelle Ziudit) who lives alone with her younger brother Dani (Muhammad Faqih Aladryus) after the death of both of their parents.
These conditions forced Laura to act as Dani’s sister and parent. The problem was even more complicated because Dani had heart problems, due to which he often had to receive resuscitation and medication.
This situation forced Laura to go to great lengths to raise enough money to pay for Dani’s treatment. He decided to become a night butterfly after he received an offer from Rachel (Dinda Kanyadevi), whom he calls his mother.
Despite prostitution, Laura adheres to several principles at work, which her pimp also supports. This caused one of Rachel’s VVIP clients to be curious and persistent in trying to win Laura over.
Let’s meet the 3 important characters from Night butterfly.
