Film facts:
Peter Kane pitched the story in 2015 to the production team at the time as he stated he had written a story for a specific actress to star in. Jimmy Hagri liked the idea so much that production of another film was postponed indefinitely to make this film. Filming began in February 2016. It has took over four years to from start to finish due to various cast and crew changes.
