Principal photography on the film started on May 24, shooting in and around Berlin and Moscow.
Delpy plays Isabelle, a scientist and divorcée who has difficult contact with her ex-husband James (Richard Armitage) due to their co-parenting of daughter Zoe (Sophia Ally). After a tragedy befalls the family, Isabelle takes matters into her own hands, turning to a couple (played by Arterton and Brühl) in Moscow for help.
The cast also includes Saleh Bakri (The Source) and Lindsay Duncan (Gifted).
Malte Grunert (Perfect Sense) is producing for Berlin-based Amusement Park together with Gabrielle Tana (Philomena) and Metalwork Pictures’ Andrew Levitas. The filming is funded by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg and Filmförderung Hamburg as well as the German Federal Film Fund (DFFF).
UK-based Protagonist Pictures is handling worldwide sales, with the film scheduled for release in 2019.
The film is Delpy’s seventh feature as a writer-director, with her previous titles including 2 Days In New York (2012) and 2 Days In Paris (2007).
