The movie stars Sonny Mandal, Archana Puran Singh, Mehrunissa Hassan, Arsh Singh, Joseph Whipp, Ari Barak, and Ellen Geer. Raz said in an e-mail interview that they had been invited to several other film festivals. "We are currently in talks with mainstream Hollywood distribution companies about a release of the film."
