"The amount of financial contributions of the producers is not yet finalized," Luther told FNE.

Production on the film started in autumn 2007 and finished a year later.

Continental Film, s.r.o. is distributing the film in Slovakia with eight copies. "Distributing the film in abroad will be discussed after its premiere in Slovakia," Luther said.
