One female and two male actors are required for an edgy political thriller (short film) told in reverse chronological order.

Logline: A young Asian woman murders a prominent Australian doctor in his workplace, but as the events of the previous day unfold, she realises that she has become a pawn in an international conspiracy – torn between appeasing the much larger forces at play, or saving her family back home overseas.

I'm a student filmmaker with experience in screenwriting and have university qualifications in cinema studies. This project is for a final submission for a filmmaking diploma, which I've been working on writing/pre-pro for close to a year now.

The film will be entered in multiple Short Film Festivals and is intended as a show reel/promotional tool for initiatiating future film production opportunities.

There is one scene where intense graphic violence is implied, but not shown. No stunt work is required.
