Update #7 (August 6th, 2019): We shot for about two weeks in Romania and now we’re back in Turkey, getting ready for another important scene. We also received an extra investment to finish shooting, and for the rest of expenses (editing, festivals) we plan to make a new crowdfunding campaign as soon as we have a trailer.

Update #6 (July 6th, 2019): We have a new investor: Luan da Silva Garibaldi! So now we only need $2,665 more to be able to shoot the movie the way we want! 

Update #5 (July 5th, 2019): Screen captures from the first two days of shootings:

Update #4 (June 22, 2019): We’re in Ceșme (Izmir, Turkey), a bit late on filming, doing the last technical preparations to start shooting till the end of June. We will continue to accept the so-much-needed donations and investments for the entire duration of production. Your urgent support is crucial!

Update #3 (May 22, 2019): We start shooting on June 16th. There’s very little time left to raise the full budget, so we did some changes to be able to shoot with even less than planned. But it’s crucial that we get more money, otherwise we might be forced to stop in the middle of shootings. Please check this page and support the project anyway you can, via investments, donations or sharing. Thank you so much!

Update #2 (May 7, 2019): We just got a new $335 contribution from Mladen Adamovic (the creator of Numbeo), so now we need $4,165 more to shoot the movie. Please share!

Update #1 (March 26, 2019): We just got a new $500 contribution from Jacob Hair and he became our new Associate Producer! So now we need $4,500 more to shoot the movie, either from investments or donations. Please share!

After a prolonged hiatus due to various reasons (con-artist Andrea Corbella being the main one), we finally managed to restart pre-production and this time for good, with a highly improved concept and a mind-blowing ending for the movie. We’re getting ready to shoot this spring (June 2019), but we need at least $5,000 extra budget because of all the extra expenses.
