A young man returns back to his hotel the night of a trial - for what, we find out later.
As he falls asleep a woman embraces him from behind - but he realises though that he should be alone. He looks, but nothing's there. He tries to fall asleep again, this time the arms embrace him again, but then move up to his neck, choking him. Again, nothing is there.
Freaking out, he invites his friend/love interest over who's been texting him throughout the day asking how the trial went. Not wanting to be alone, he asks her to fall asleep with him...

This film explores a young man's inability to be honest with himself about what he's done, and the people that it's effected.

Please be aware that this short is a conversation on on the effects on pornography to real sex (based on a male perspective) - and how it can lead into abuse. Being such heavy themes, I (the director/writer), don't take this lightly and promise to ensure a highly professional and supportive set for all involved.
I'm a very experienced director - I've made a feature film before (sugar cube), and I'm constantly creating new works. Although this is unpaid, it will be a great piece for your showreel and hopefully a great experience as well. Applicants that have a video showreel will have preference (even if it's a basic rom-com scene filmed on a phone or webcam, it doesn't matter. We just want to see your performance style). Thanks for applying!

StarNote note for talent: Please note the Casting Professional has indicated this production contains strong themes including the discussion and implied scenes of sexual abuse. No abuse is ever shown on screen. Applicants may wish to clarify details regarding these themes with the advertiser before attending an audition.
