Mustafić in an interview said: "We need a cathartic films that talk about our recent past. They are just as important as a testimony to the evil and stupidity of war does not happen again." The film was not only the debut of Dino Mustafić, but for the writer Zlatko Topčić as the lead actors Ermin Bravo, Ermin Sijamija, Mario Drmać and the young Croatian actress Helena Minić.
