The concept of the video is based on feelings and symbolism. "The main goal which we wanted to aproach during shooting was getting in the right mood", Julija Fricsone-Gavriss explains. "The video was shot in two days in Riga, the capital of Latvia. Two shooting days in a row started at 5:00 am with sunrise and ended at 20:00 pm with sunset. We used only natural lighting."
