The movie will represent Russia at the Oscars (the best international feature film nomination) and the Golden Globe awards (foreign language film submissions).

The role of Iya is portrayed by then student Victoria Miroshnichenko. She graduated in 2019 (Directing department, class by Evgeny Kamenkovich and Dmitry Krymov).
