(Lead) Lucy: Gender: Female: 22-25
Franki’s mom is completely beside herself. She had Franki at the age of 18 years old and is raising Franki as a single mom. She received the news only a few weeks prior to Franki starting chemotherapy, she’s feeling overwhelmed and helpless.
She’s a very petite brunette, and naturally pretty even without makeup.
(Lead) Jennifer: Gender: Female: 28-35
Noah’s mom is very protective of her son. She is a momma-bear. She’s very easily stressed and overwhelmed but mostly confused. She was once happily-married until her and her husband found that their life was put on hold because Noah was diagnosed with Autism. She doesn’t know how to cope.
She is very fit and well taken care of. They are a wealthy family.
(Lead) Franki: Gender: Female: 4-6
Franki is the firecracker in a room. Nothing can tear a smile off her face, not even chemotherapy. Franki loves to play dress up and wear her pretty dresses and costume jewellery out. Franki and her mom, Lucy, are closer than anything else. Her mom is her superhero, her best friend, and her fighter. Although Franki doesn’t understand what’s going on, she never fails to show affection when in need.
Franki is fragile and petite.
(Lead) Ben: Gender: Male: 16-19
Jacob’s older brother. He’s been raising his brother since their mother passed away, especially now. He’s very overprotective of his little brother except for the one time he wasn’t able to. He now has to step up and be the adult figure in his little brothers life after he stabs his father to death for being brutally beaten.
A bad-boy looking, not well groomed young kid.
(Lead) Jacob: Gender: Male: 6-9
A little boy of no words. Although Jacob doesn’t have any dialogue, he has very strong facial expressions. Jacob is the younger brother to Ben.
