WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
[ZOE] (11-15 to play 13) Zoe is a 13-year-old girl, the cherished adopted child of a loving couple. Zoe’s life has been ordinary in the very best way. A stable home, school, gymnastics - she's a regular kid on the cusp of teenage hood, which means she can seem like a little kid one moment, and a young woman the next. She can be smart and instinctive, then childish and emotional. She’s a regular thirteen-year-old girl. This regular life ends when her identity is discovered, and she is violently kidnapped in an attempt to draw out her real mother. Separated from her adopted parents, Zoe is thrown into a relationship with her birth mother who is ill-equipped emotionally, but who has a primal need to love and protect her. And teach her how to survive... NOTE: ACTRESS MUST BE ABLE TO PORTRAY PARTIAL LATINX HERITAGE.
