Making his debut in cinema, the young theater director from Leningrad Dmitry Astrakhan, along with his permanent co-author playwright Oleg Danilov, turned to the Jewish theme, which was as popular in the late 1980s as the Stalinist theme. According to Astrakhan's recollections, he was allocated 100,000 rubles for a movie worth a million rubles at the prices of that time on Lenfilm. The remaining 900 thousand he found through a journalist Vladimir Kamyshev.[3]
