This is the story about woman whose husband cheated on her. Then she cheated on her husband herself and walked out on him to her lover. He died in the accident and the woman started to look after his widow and children. A little after she met a good man who was very rich. They didn’t work out though.

Her ex-husband set both her and himself up and checked into a hospital. When she almost lost everything her life seemed to get its groove back. This is the short summary of the movie.

The inconsumable genre of melodrama had attracted me for a long time, I just never had the opportunity to do such a movie when suddenly I found this.  Film company “The Russian” offered me to make this melodrama in a short period of time. The script wasn’t even finished but I agreed as that was kind of the living on the edge. 

The script was so twisted adult-like, the dialogues were written rough-and-ready and left much to be desired. But I could understand the scenarist as he wrote it for the wide audience. I got used to it.

The cast was just stunning as well as the crew (it was so great to work with them all) and production process sailed through. The atmosphere was full of creativity because of the script. I couldn’t judge what the result was like and how it met our hearty expectations. It was up to the audience to decide.
