Keko and children's book author Shpresa Veto tackle socialist Albania's taboo subject of divorce. A sensitive child acting in a partisan drama tries to reunite his separated parents. After her husband, documentary filmmaker Endri Keko, was seriously injured in a 1979 car accident, Xhanfise Keko started looking for more serious material. Much of When Shooting a Film's story was drawn from the director's personal observations of one of her child actors and his fighting parents on the set of Tomka and his Friends.
