Tamara: (40-50) Protective mother of her only son, Curtis. After being invited to dinner at the family of a school colleague of her son’s, Tamara projects an aura of being “everyone’s friend and ally” but right or wrong, her true raw emotion reveals itself when she perceives her husband and son as being overtly attacked.
Bill: (40-55) Opinionated father of 17 year old Curtis. Over confident on the outside, Bill covers up his insecurities by projecting a macho, insensitive character, all the while harboring his pain and difficulty moving forward.
Michael: (40-55) A politician. Father of Joel and married to Debora, tried his best to be a good father and family man, but expresses guilt and difficulty in looking at the full picture, the current reality and guilt at not having spent more time with his son.
