Fun fact:

Nika's actual grandmother Dina (legal name Jenny) played the lead role in the film. She always dreamed to be a film star, and had her dream fulfilled at the age of 82. Together with the director, Jenny attended festival's screening in Los Angeles in the heart of Hollywood. Something she couldn't even imagine before. And at the age of 86 she moved back to Russia after living in Canada for 6 years. The film resembles some true stories of her life. In November of 2020 she'll be celebrating her 95th birthday.
