Synopsis: Jesse is a young man who just can’t seem to grow up. Unfortunately for him, life has different plans. He witnesses the abrupt disappearance of everyone around him and is forced into adulthood as he must band together as the leader of a small group of kids to find out what in the world is going on. Is this a dream, the rapture, the apocalypse, or just in his head? And the better question… how does he get out?

Character Breakdowns:

-Jesse (Starring, Age: 16-19, Any ethnicity)- Jesse is on the verge of growing up, but wants to stay a kid as long as possible; collecting action figures, playing videos games and watching cartoons. He is forced into being a leader.

-Teen Jesse (Supporting, Age: 11-14, Any ethnicity)- The main character’s teen/pre-teen self. A shy type that is forced into a bad situation. Can display pure hatred.

-Kid Jesse (Supporting, Age: 6-9, Any ethnicity)- The main character’s kid self. Must be able to enunciate, must be able to pronounce complex words, must be able to perform an extended monologue. In other words, he needs to sound as if he’s an adult in a child’s body. Playful, but also very wise.

Sam (Co-Starring, Age: 13-15, Any ethnicity)- Rough around the edges. Has grown a cold heart due to his upbringing. We still see that he may have been a sweet, shy child when he was young, but life has hardened him. Acts like a thug.

-Alice (Co-Starring, Age: 9-15, Any ethnicity)- Sweet, if not, subtly/unintentionally annoying young girl. Very charismatic, but may have seen Hannah Montana one too many times. Craves the spotlight. Skilled in Dance (ballet or jazz preffered).

-Reina (Supporting, Age: 15-19, Any ethnicity)- Attractive, strong, intelligent. Must be skilled in Dance (ballet preffered, but other styles also welcome).

-Teen Reina (Supporting, Age: 10-14, Any ethnicity)- Reina’s teen/pre-teen self. Physically abused, timid, traumatized.

-Gabriel (Featured, Age: 17-25, Any ethnicity)- Strong, rebellious young man. Toughened up by life. Fit and serious.

-The Pretty Girl (Featured, Age: 13-15, Any ethnicity)- Attractive. Girl-next-door or teen model type. Charismatic.

-The Mother (Featured, Age: mid 30′s-early 50′s, Any ethnicity)- A very sweet mother. She is the glue that holds her family together, becomes very sick.

-The Step Dad (Featured, Age: mid 30′s-early 50′s, Any ethnicity)- An old Boxer, well past his prime. A gentleman one minute; a mean drunk the next.
