The story unfolds in Astana. Three young men are given a chance to enter the world of women, a world where women stand tall and have all of their whims gratified and wishes fulfilled, Tengrinews.kz reports.

“However, doubts arise as to whether a life where only girls live and everything is set according to feminine principles is that perfect. Will the main characters want to become the idols of millions of women or will they try to return to a regular life?” the authors ask with the film, according to the news agency.

The creators of the successful “Nichego Lichnogo” (“Nothing Personal”) series are doing the filming and the Bernays company the film production. Shooting on “Vse iz-za Muzhikov” will be completed by about the middle of August and the creators plan to bring the film to theatres next year.  

“Creating a feminine setting was the hardest thing in this film. We had to keep an eye out to make sure no men wandered into a scene, look for dozens of feminine models of cars, recolour walls to pink and a lot more,” producer Aleksander Suslov shared, Tengrinews writes.
