One day, during a heated discussion with Bogdana, Alice confesses that she is pregnant and that she wants to keep the baby. The confession has a powerful effect on Bogdana, as she has unsuccessfully tried to get pregnant in the past.

The director tells Cineuropa that he and his writing partners have children of different ages and that they have been preoccupied by the challenges of parent-child relationships. He also says that important people in his life were adopted as children, “which makes the story rather personal, although there are no biographical details in the screenplay”. 

The domestic release is expected for 2018.
