short story for short film

What are some short stories/myths etc. with a sole female protagonist for film adaptation?

The setting is a city (dark in mood, the usual city locations such as parks, metros, bars available). The cast consists entirely of one young female actress and possibly other people for just bit parts. The film is to be silent and about 10-15 minutes long.

I'm looking for any stories that come to mind that could be adapted.

Little Matchstick Girl (although it might be a bit short for 15 minutes)

If you wanted to end on a less dark note than the Little Match Girl, The Star Talers could be reset to the city.

The Myth of Cupid and Psyche might work.

I bet an urban parkour version of Atalanta and Hippomenes would be pretty visually kickass.
