Fyo will do anything to be with Nastenka, even if it means helping her win back her dream lover.”
The cast of the film is rounded out by Jemuel Morris as Fyo, and character actress Amanda Plummer who portrays Sister Sarah. The screen adaptation was written by Amin Matalqa and Matthew Antonelli. Amin Matalqa also directed the film.
