For a short film shooting next week (23rd and 24th Feb) casting:

  • GIRL – 15-17 (actress ideally over 18 and can play younger) – The Girl is an optimistic person. She has been trying to save her mother from herself for years now. She has always tried to be her best, and tries truly to be the perfect daughter, but after one particularly bad argument, she realises that she will never be able to escape her mother’s abuse, and that she cannot be fixed.

The film is about a teenage girl that commits suicide because she feels as though she cannot escape her abusive mother.
