In ancient China, two young people from 2 different classes fell in love, the girl was from upper noble class, so they were not allowed to marry, the man died broken hearted, on the day of marriage, the bride insisted to pay homage to the tomb of her deceased lover, because the bride carriage had to pass the tomb on her way , while she was crying and burining incense to the tomb, the tomb suddenly split and exploded, she jumped into it, and then came out from the tomb some butterflies, among them were the two lovers, they had transformed into butterflies.  May be this is just an allegory which describes how people hope for freedom, as human beings you are often born in chains,I mean unseen chains, only animals are born  free.
