Synopsis: 
Vivian, a young Asian-Canadian mother of two, inherits a rusty family wok from her elderly grandmother. Although not an avid cook, she recognizes the cultural and historical significance of this heirloom and endeavors to restore it. This proves to be a difficult and tedious task: one that takes time, patience, effort, and resilience. In the process of restoring the wok, she ponders her life experiences, her cultural identity, and the future of her family.
Submission Instructions: 

Please email your headshot and resume to rheanna@rheannatoy.com, SUBJECT LINE: "[Your Full Name], Vivian". You will then be forwarded sides. Please send a pre-recorded audition tape link uploaded privately to Youtube or Vimeo, by 12:00AM November 5. The sides do not need to be memorized as most of the dialogue in the film is in voiceover. Shortlisted candidates will be called for an in-person reading at a later date.

Character 1 Name: 
Vivian
Character 1 Age: 
30-40
Character 1 Description: 
(LEAD, Asian or partially Asian decent) Vivian is a first-generation Canadian, and the mother of two. Through the restoration of a rusty family wok, she contemplates the importance of preserving one’s culture and passing on that knowledge to future generations. This role requires voice-over narration, and previous experience is beneficial but not required. On days of filming, the role is largely physical with scarce amounts of dialogue, but with room for improvisation with other cast, including younger child actors. On-set, the part will involve Vivian restoring a rusty wok through various methods, and eventually preparing a meal for the family. Experience cooking, particularly with a wok, is a big asset.
