Director Phan Gia Nhật Linh, who gained success recently with the film Em Là Bà Nội Của Anh (Sweet 20s) will work on this film project.
The novel which tells a romantic story of innocent love between adolescents, has been added to the curriculum of all Vietnamese language faculties at Russian universities.
