Trivia

This film "is inspired by the true story of the singer Suzanne Tamim, whose 2008 murder led to the prosecution of an Egyptian businessman.” - The guardian.com

In a sadly ironically situation, director Saleh was forced to shoot his film in Casablanca, Morocco after Egyptian security forced disallowed him from working in Cairo - "a sign that the new regime has kept many of its old ways" as illustrated in the film. - The Hollywood Reporter
