The footage for the film was shot in 1988 but due to the outbreak of Croatian War of Independence (which started in 1991) it had to be abandoned and much footage was lost. The missing pieces were eventually recovered and it was released officially in 1997, by which time Pitt was a major star. The film was later featured in an episode of Cinema Insomnia.

He risks it all for the love of a lifetime!
