After the earthquake in Nepal last year, the crew managed to raise a bit more than £2,000 notably for C.H.A.N.C.E for Nepal and MAITI Nepal. A year later, the filmmakers wish to use the release of their film to keep on supporting the two associations’ continued efforts for the children and families who fell victim to the devastating earthquake by donating 25% of their profits.
