Two Actresses Wanted - Student Film

I am looking for two actresses (early to mid 20s) to perform in a short student film I am producing as a digital media and film major. The piece, tentatively titled "Our Worlds Collide", begins with Kayleen, who's life has been at a crossroads since recently admitting to being gay. Isolated and frustrated she finds things take another turn when a girl named Bekah suddenly barges into her home as she frantically tries to flee from her controlling husband. While homosexuality plays its part in the piece it is a very emotionally driven and dimensional than that and is more about two young people trying to see the world in new ways. Due to school conflicts anyone interested would have to have weekday morning availability to shoot (preferably Tuesday, Thursday or Friday).
