As is usually the case with an independent film, we spent years and executed many strategies to build a creative package of talent and find the financing. Finally in 2005, Lee Daniels came on board the project and brought the resources necessary for the film to be made.
It took another two years after Lee joined the project for the film to go into production. In 2007, the film was shot in both New Mexico and Tennessee. The cast of Mariah Carey, Adam Rothenberg and Ethan Peck brought the characters to life and the film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2008. What a journey it has been!
