The film is a coproduction between Macedonia’s Sisters and Brother Mitevski Production, Belgium’s Entre Chien et Loup, Slovenia’s Vertigo, Croatia’s Spiritus Movens and France’s Deuxième Ligne Films.

The Macedonian Film Agency, the Belgium Film and Tax Shelter, the Slovenian Film Center, the Croatian Audiovisual Centre and Eurimages supported the project.

Sisters and Brother Mitevski Production will release the film domestically on 15 March 2019.
