The film script is based on the novel “The Revenge of the Butterfly” by Anatoly Zshuk with the events taking place in Western Belarus in the first post-war years.

No Russian actor takes part in the film, unlike other Belarusian films. And the director didn’t regret of having invited only Belarusian actors. Belarusian theatrical youth showed very nice acting.
