Miss Butterfly as is going to meet the sun, looking

for a way out and reaching for the light becomes captive in spider’s web. 

The spider moved by compassion after observing all the grace and delicacy in

Miss Butterfly, comes to an agreement with her.  She is supposed to bring

one of the insects from the dark cellar and ties it up in spider’s web for him.

Instead the spider is going to lead her to the way out and to the light. But

after hearing the insects’ stories Miss Butterfly feels pity for them and

eventually returns to the spider empty handed with injured wings and makes

herself captive in the web to be the spider’s food. Knowing the truth, the

spider sets the Miss Butterfly free and shows her the way out to meet the sun.

Miss Butterfly recalls all the other insects in the cellar to share her freedom

with them but she gets no response. She who is so frustrated by their reaction

wide opens her weary wings and flies toward the sun.
