JIG / Lead / Female / 25 – 35 / Caucasian

As soon as we meet Jig, we can tell that her past has left her troubled.

Even when her neighbor gives her refuge, she can’t bring herself to call the police.

PAUL / Lead / Male / 25 – 35 / Caucasian

Paul is a generally well-meaning guy, but when he gets worried… he feels the need to relieve it, even if that means hurting those he loves. Our story finds him attempting to convince his wife to get an abortion by expressing that he’s looking out for the best interest. Of course, when he has to speak to the neighbor, Paul seems to be the most charming and friendly man on Earth.

CONNOR / Supporting / Male / 20 – 30 / Any Ethnicity

Connor is the nice young guy who lives next door. Fresh out of school, he’s never been in a long-term relationship, and he’s never been faced with the kind of situation that he frequently hears occurring next door… heavy arguing, followed by crashes and shouts. He’s hesitant to get involved, but can’t bring himself to stand by and do nothing.
