Casting for short film “Why They Slept” A.S.A.P. (Detroit)

Hello, I am looking for a principal lead in my short film titled Why They Slept. The character is a young, middle eastern girl in her mid to late teens named Beverly. The plot synopsis is as follows:

Meghan is a curious and lonely fifteen-year-old girl from Michigan whose sudden and brutal kidnapping by sex traffickers offsets an unnerving turn of events. Confined in a dingy apartment for forty days by a concealed organization and their ruthless lackey, Benjamin, Meghan fights for her life while forging an unlikely bond with a kidnapped girl from Syria named Beverly. Together, the two girls struggle to endure and rebuild their lives in a world that will never be the same.

The character synopsis for Beverly is also as follows:

Beverly – A young, humble, apprehensive Syrian girl in her mid-teens who was raised in a Jewish home as a child. Beverly was lured away from her home, kidnapped, and trafficked to the United States as a sex slave.

I will need someone who is available A.S.A.P. as I want to begin filming right away.

I’ll also be needing several extras of all ages so please let me know if you are interested.
