MANKER – LEAD ROLE – MALE – 50-60 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
33 LINES – 3 SCENES
Hardened by all the injustices that he’s seen in the world, Manker and left cruel and apathetic, and carries suspicion towards everyone. He places his faith in technology because it is fair and just. As a result, he is eager to work hard for his regime even if it means overstepping boundaries and embracing risks because he is doing work for the greater good.
MOM – LEAD ROLE – FEMALE – 30-40 YRS OLD – ASIAN
17 LINES – 4 SCENES
This unnamed mother aims to nurture her artistic sensibilities and childhood innocence in a way that she never received as a child. She uses storytelling as a way to offer her daughter a better interior life than their exterior circumstances allow. They have been homeless, fleeing in sickness and hunger, ever since the government raided the impoverished squalor community that they were finding refuge in.
GIRL – LEAD ROLE – FEMALE – 6-15 YRS OLD – ASIAN
11 LINES – 6 SCENES
Curious, immensely, creative, cheeky with a great sense of humor. The origin of her superpower to draw things to life is unknown. She is not yet tainted by the evils of her world, not yet aware of the motives of bad-hearten men. Like all children, her objectives are the pursuit of freedom, happiness, and her mommy.
MANKIE – LEAD ROLE – MALE – 6-15 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
10 LINES – 1 SCENE
Mankie is the child version of General Manker. In the film, he is brought to life by Girl. Not yet cruel and apathetic, Mankie is hopeful and wants to grow up to become a great cop like his father. He is playful, active, and cheeky.
