Mariposa: Sa hawla ng gabi

Synopsis: Set in 1994 Manila, the story is simple; an innocent girl caught in a web of horror. The main protagonist is a probinsiyana (country girl) named Maya (Erich Gonzales). Maya however is not the typical probinsiyana--she kills and skins wild monitor lizards who feed on their live stocks. Maya receives a telegram from her sister's friend Vivian (Ma. Isabel Lopez) obliging her to take a trip to the city about something important and that her sister Mona needs her. In the city, Maya discovers that her sister is already dead. Maya needs to raise 40,000 pesos to claim her sister's body or it'll be sold to a local university. Maya, innocent and all inquires about a tacky tattoo that has the name "Carlos" on her sister's arm. Maya assumes that "Carlos" must be someone special and perhaps can aid her into claiming her sister from the morgue. Restless Vivian paves the way.

PARK Hee-soon YOO Sun

Are you tired from traveling?


I want you to learn

about the world.

This country is a vast place.

Learn the Russian language

and explore the world.

Yes, Father.

I prepared some gabi.

Oh, what a surprise...

Thank you.

- You love Dan.

- No, I don't...

- Yes, you...

- No, I don't...


Are you okay, sir?

Protect Dan.



Your dark eyes.

How I love you so.

How I'm scared of you.

Your burning eyes.

Have a good time.

What's this!

You must be Silver Fox!

I found gold bars

in those coffee sacks.

They're Japanese gold.

Why do Russians have these?

Those Russian officers

must be working for Japan.

Now we have to

go farther.

They are Icy Fox and Silver Fox

from Chosun.

They speak Russian fluently.

So they must have lived

in Russia during childhood.

Icy Fox can speak

Chinese and Japanese.

Silver Fox can change into

anything she wants

and make anything

she saw.

As freighters from Europe

stopped coming in,

they're stealing merchants' beans

to sell expensive to aristocrats.

After investing much money,

they even created peace

between gangs at borders.

We can't get any information

about them

because the gangs won't talk.

Now they even robbed

Russia's military trains.

Aren't you ashamed?

For the honor of Russia,

I'll get them executed.

I want to have coffee.

I'll teach you.

Try making your own coffee.

No, you know how I love

watching you make coffee.

Before leaving, let's go

say goodbye to your father.

Give him the coffee

you make on your own.

The grave of KIM Wu-hyeon

I made this coffee.

I know you often

came here alone.

Please promise my father

that you'll live as my man.


It's Russian soldiers.

Stop them!

Icy Fox and Silver Fox shall be

executed immediately

for theft and

disturbing Russian army.


Turn the light on.

I'm Sadako Tayama.

Since I saved your life,

you owe the Empire of Japan.

I didn't beg for my life.

You're KIM Jong-sik

who followed Japanese merchants.

What do you want?

Tanya... she's alive.

Japan paid lots of gold

to Russian army to save you.

If you don't obey,

you and Tanya will suffer

unbearable pain.

Go ahead.

This is enough to make any

strong woman an opium addict.

Stop it!

Are you accepting my offer?

I'll do whatever you say.

Let her go.

You'll become

Japanese Sakamoto.

And Tanya will go to Chosun

as a Russian.

Tanya will poison the King

and Sakamoto disturb his army.

When the Gabi operation begins,

you shouldn't know each other.


Many people will attend the

coronation of Russian Emperor.

Chosun's King also sent

MIN Yeong-hwan and envoys.

That's the famous woman

in Nevski Cafe.

Her coffee tastes amazing

and she memorizes

every order.

- Is that so?

- Yes, it's true.

- That's a rumor.

- Really?

She can't remember

every order.

- No, that's impossible.

- I think it's possible.

I bet she can't do it.

How about betting?


Yes, and let's switch

our seats.

Sounds fun.

- Let's do it.

- Call her.


Ready to order?

I'll have shashlyk.

And wheat vodka, please.

I got it.

I'll have jarenaya kartoshka

with mushrooms.

I'll have blini.

And a good cup of coffee

you make.


I'll have

Farshirovanie Perzi.

And red wine.

You have borsch

on the menu.

Instead of coffee,

I'll have vodka today.


- I'll have steak and vodka.

- Okay.

Is that everything?

Yes, that's all.


So, now switch the seats.

I'll sit there.

You come here.

- Let's move.

- All right.

Oh, I see.



Here's what you ordered.
