New York Casting Calls: Female/Male Asian Actors needed for short film “Miss You Much”

This is a dramatic narrative short film about coming to terms with the death of a loved one. The main character is a young woman whose best friend died tragically in an urban traffic accident. She refuses to acknowledge his death by acting as though she is entertaining him in home one afternoon. When her friend seemingly goes missing during this fantasy visit she ventures out to find him. While looking for him she is overcome with a feeling of fear and foreboding which leads to her realizing that her friend is dead. This epiphany leads to a descent into madness for the young woman as she struggles to fight off the oppressive emotions she is forced to confront. The focus of this piece is the young woman’s inner battle.
