Asian/Asian- American Male (Toshi) – Toshi is trying to learn English and stumbles upon Philip who offers him some ‘choice’ English phrases to use. Pleased with the result of the new phrases he asks Philip to continue teaching him in exchange for bicycling lessons. – Preferably 20-26 years old. An accent that may be considered East Asian is desirable or the ability to accurately mimic an accent.

Young White Female (Lisa) – Preferably between 18-24 years old to play Philip’s daughter. Lisa wants her father (Philip) to be more active in life and to get out of the rut he’s been in, however she has little faith that he can accomplish his bicycling dream.
