Synopsis: In Birmingham, Alabama 1961 a teenage interracial couple strive to gain perspective in a relationship under the pressure of society, expectations and advantages.
Essentially a movie about love. Must be comfortable with exploring the themes of race and privilege.
Ruby- 18-28 (African American)- High school senior who is very studious and driven towards her goals. Brave and knows exactly what she wants.
Ray- 18-28 (Caucasian) A very popular and likable guy. A high school football player admired by his peers ( think of Troy Bolton from High School Musical). Sweet kid but naive.
Jo-Ann- 30-50 (Caucasian) Stereotypical sweet southern woman with an underlying racial bias.
Guy- 18 (Caucasian)- Alpha Male. Total Jerk. Bully.
Police Officers 1 & 2 ages 20 and up (Caucasian) respond to Jo-Ann’s call for “help”
Extras- All ages, caucasian- Occupy the cafe in which ruby and ray confer. Give judgemental looks.
