NELLIE - (Actress must be 18 years or older; role requires filming scenes of an intense adult nature) Tough 15-17 year old girl, abused by her stepfather, living on the street with her younger sister. She's protective, watchful, and mourns the loss of her own childhood by fiercely protecting her sister's. The role is physically demanding. Nellie must convincingly hold her own with a gun, in a fight, while still seeming to have the hint of warmth that is her natural self. Role requires a comfort to film scenes of her initial abuse, as well as later attempts to make money by selling herself on the street. NO NUDITY REQUIRED. Ability and comfort with improvisation is needed.

ANNA - (Actress can be under 18, but over 18 is preferred) Bright and fun 11-14 year old living on the street with her older sister. She is smart and strong willed, but more oblivious to her dire situation than her sister. Has a great smile, big laugh, and irresistibly cute. But her defining characteristic is her big heart and her bond to her sister. Role requires filming scenes that are violent and briefly sexually suggestive. NO NUDITY REQUIRED. Ability and comfort with improvisation is needed.

Nellie and her younger sister, Anna, cling to happy memories of growing up on Venice Beach, when a normal childhood seemed within their grasp. The harsh reality of their mother'sheroin addiction and string of abusive partners erode those memories little by little. When the latest boyfriend abuses Nellie and threatens Anna with the same, they take off. Nellie and Anna is the story of their harrowing new life on the streets, protected only by their fierce devotion to each other.
