"Into the Canyon"  (working title)


Logline: When a woman's past involvement with a gang of outlaws catches up with her and destroys her new life, she's torn between seeking vengeance and protecting what remains of her family.


Josephine: A good-looking woman, between 28 and 35, she is pregnant with her first baby and has been taking care of a young boy as her own.  She's pretty, warm-hearted, and strong, but can be secretive about the fiery, more assertive and dangerous side of her nature.


William:  Josephine's husband, he's older (between 40 and 50) and likes to act as a guiding voice of wisdom for her (and serve as her protector), although he acknowledges she needs neither.


Henry:  William's 8 year old boy, Josephine has been raising him for the last several years. The bond between them is almost as strong as the bond between him and his father.


Wade Bowler:  Male, 30's, Wade leads the gang in a firm but relatively quiet manner. He speaks eloquently and is conspicuously well-dressed, though his anger with upper class society is expressed at every possible chance.  He is clever and sly, and has a mischievous side, which can turn to viciousness easily. 


Edwin "Flint" Nelson:  Male, 30's, Flint is a quiet but strong presence in the gang, and it's readily apparent that Wade considers him his right hand man. He's clearly more of a thinker than the rest of the gang, though quieter and often less assertive.


Jasper:  Male, mid 40's, Jasper is quick to laugh and almost as quick to pull out his gun, often at inappropriate times.  He has the nervous air of someone eager to prove themselves to their colleagues.


Hiram:  Male, late 20's, Hiram is a thick and tall young man whose presence is much like a tree trunk: quiet and solid.  His favorite pastime is cards, which he plays with and beats his colleagues in regularly.


Otis:  Male, mid 20's, Otis is skinny, and clever, but has very few other positive qualities other than being exceptionally handy; fixing things is his specialty.
