The film was produced by US-based Morning Star Entertainment and directed by Andrew Nock, who along with cameraman Michael Ojeda and soundman Joe Egan traveled to Vietnam three times between November 2011 and January 2012 to create the story of Hai’s life.
Morning Star Entertainment used some footage provided by Tuoi Tre Newspaper for the film.
