Speaking about the film and its subject, the makers said in their official statement, "A very special thing about this short film is that it's entirely shot on an iPhone. The film highlights the fact that nature gives us warning signs, but we choose to ignore them. It warns of the impending catastrophe much before it became a worldwide pandemic."

The film was shot at various locations in Mumbai before the nationwide lockdown was imposed by the government.
