The film was shot in 2018 and went on a two-year festival tour before being released on Amazon Prime and YouTube in 2020 and 2021, respectively.

According to the directors, the film follows Shade, a 16-year-old refugee whose escape from her war-torn African country lands her in a remote, uninhabited part of Australia, and her subsequent battle for survival.

According to Daniel Okoduwa, the film director, the project aims to further amplify the plights of refugees risking their lives in search of better opportunities in the face of harsh realities.
