Forge Entertainment Inc. is casting for a short piece from a feature film in search of funding. We will be shooting 10 pages from the feature length script. This film is a gritty dramatic thriller. We are seeking men and woman who can speak Russian, although not all characters will be speaking Russian.
This is a story of revenge. Every year human trafficking, as an organized crime, is approximated to generate 32 billion dollars in revenue. The industrialized countries are the main source of slaves or labor servants approximated at 15.5 million victims. Individuals under the age 18, make up half of the total number of humans being trafficked. They are brought to cities across America to work in brothels as prostitutes.
Young Lana has escaped, but she has only left one hell to be lost in another. Forced to grow up and find her way on the cold and mean street, she grows strong. And now she’s reaping revenge on those whom she deems evil. Be the criminals who rape and murder or the police who turn a blind eye. Now that she is free, the blood will spill.
