Gary LeGault, the director of the film, explains how the project came about:

"I've known Holly for twenty-eight years, after video-taping her appearance at at a nightclub called S.N.A.F.U. in New York City during 1978. I never really expected for us to be working on a film together but a few years ago we were reunited in California and I thought that I would write a screenplay just for her. Happily, she has given our little movie her complete attention. Her performance in the film is quite dynamic and I think that people will like what they see. The other actors are also very good. Holly's leading man, Frank Messina, played a regular character on the daytime soap opera, Santa Barbara, during the 1990's and her co-star, Robert Sherman, was one of the subjects in some of Robert Mapplethorpe's photographs."
