Goliath doesn’t fit in with the other caterpillars at Butterfly Village. She doesn’t mind much because she has her other bug friends to play with, but she hopes that when she becomes a butterfly, she will finally fit in with her kind. However, when she emerges from her cocoon, she finds that she still doesn’t. She decides not to fly around others for fear of embarrassment, but she can’t resist flying at night. Then comes the annual butterfly party in a high-up hanging planter. Goliath really wants to go, so she tries to get there without flying, to no avail. Will she ever belong? Will she learn to love herself? Find out in Goliath!
