Home Grown.
A story about two illegally trafficked migrants locked in an isolated house in the Irish countryside with just enough food and equipment to grow and harvest a large crop of cannabis in three months time. Though they cannot speak each other’s language they must keep each other alive and sane until the job is done and they are released into their new home country.

This is an independent production with a limited budget – but it will be paid work.
We are still planning the shoot but it will likely take place over 48 hours on a weekend in late June in a house in the Wicklow mountains.

We are looking for two male actors of Asian and Caucasian ethnicity respectively, preferably able to speak both English and another language fluently.

Auditions may be conducted in pairs depending on the casting response.

Character 1: A boyish, naive and willful day-dreamer with hopes and aspirations. He has only recently been trafficked into slavery and does not fully appreciate the inescapable permanence of his situation.

Character 2: A hard working, mature man with a philosophical outlook, stoic principles and a paternal instinct. He has been a slave laborer for some years and understands that to survive he must be absolutely obedient and thankful for every last moment of life.

Speaking Extras – Thug 1 & Thug 2: Male and/or female hardened criminal gang-members who will not hesitate to exhibit brutal and if need be lethal force to maintain obedience and ensure good harvests. English speaking with Irish accents.
