CRAIG: late 20s-early 30s: Escaping a painful past, he's determined to make something of himself. After a hellish childhood he can't imagine ever being a father. He's serious about his goals and hard on those he loves, even harder on himself – but a hard edge covers a wounded soul.

ZED: 50s-late 60s: A hard drinking, hard living sonofabitch. He'd kick your ass, then buy you a beer. An ex-hippie/biker, he's his own man, proud of living outside "the system" for as long as he can remember. He owns a beat up pick-up and squats on a patch of desert.


3. Email:  Female / 18-24 yrs. / Any Ethnicity.

MINA: (early 20s-30): A free spirit, spontaneous and impulsive, youthful and full of hope, but neither naive nor foolish, equally comfortable in an evening gown or overalls. She wants to be a good wife and mother.
