The film has been supported by “Euroimage”, while the Ministry of Culture in FYROM has allocated an amount of 500 thousand euros.

A day before Orthodox Easter on 12 April, 4 Macedonian children who had gone fishing and an adult were killed in the lake of Smilkova in the suburbs of Skopje.

6 Albanians from Skopje were given life prison sentences for this, but the murder has sparked debates because there are suspicions that the men who were convicted, may have been wrongfully sent to prison. Protests were held as a result of this. The murder is being  investigated by the Special Prosecution. /balkaneu.com/
