The film was financed by an Israeli investor who wanted an X-rated sex film. Barbara Peeters changed this to be about a lesbian relationship. She feels the fact it was from a female director was significant. "If you are going to involve yourself in subjects that heretofore have been taboo, the first moves in that direction should be as close to reality as possible," she said.[1]
