The fact that the video was shot in Georgia did not stop Jamala from drawing parallels with her homeland Crimea. She shares her thoughts about the video on her Facebook page.

“When I first saw the video, I felt homesick because Georgia looks like Crimea. There is virtually no beautiful scenery in this video because our goal was to show a man on an inner quest. This is a story of loneliness and returning to one’s own roots, the ultimate beginning,” wrote the singer on her Facebook page.
