Can You Dream of More filming started

• 16.07.2020

Recently, filming of four-episode melodrama under a working title Can You Dream of More started as a joint project of FILM.UA Group and Ukraina TV channel.

The first filming day took place in a contemporary clinical center. According to the plot, the mother of Ksenia, the protagonist, is admitted into a clinic. And the girl finds out that her mother needs a complicated and expensive surgery. To earn money for treatment, Ksenia is hired as a nurse in the house of a wealthy widow Olga. And suddenly she finds herself in the midst of a confusing story…

Aleksey Esakov, director, tells about the new film:

“In the life of every character, some events happened that radically changed them. And the film is not just about good or bad people; it is about circumstances and challenges changing them. Some become better and stronger while others break. This is a story of choice: every character decides on their own which road to take… I’ll add that working on such a complex and multilayered plot is truly fascinating.”  

Aleksey broke the plate and wished the team every success.

A significant portion of filming will take place in a suburban house of Bolgov family. In the beginning this place will seem gloomy, full of riddles and mysteries. But with the arrival of Ksenia the protagonist the house will start changing as well: it will become lighter, more hospitable and open.  

Tatyana Nosenko, producer, also commented on the new project:  

“We are filming a melodrama. And actually our film is about skeletons in the closet, the secrets in the past that keep impacting the characters’ lives. The mistakes and unsolved problems don’t disappear on their own; they shape the present.”


With the development of the plot, characters will show themselves more and perform different actions – noble, pragmatic or treacherous…

The lead roles are played by Aleksandra Sizonenko, Irina Verenich-Ostrovskaya, Sergey Dzyalik, Vlad Nikityuk, Aleksandr Kryuchkov, and others.

We wish successful shifts to the team crew. The film will be premiered on Ukraina TV channel; we’ll additionally inform you about the date.
