MAIN CHARACTERS

(MORE ON THE WAY)

EMMANUEL

13  Shy, withdrawn.

 

Not great at soccer or team sports but excels riding Pasos.

 

He might lack social skills but doesn't lack for courage, when push comes to shove. 

                                               

JORGE

12  Archetypical 'boy.'  

Nice kid, Opie-sort.  Bit of a day-dreamer.

Effortlessly athletic, but not         competitive. Confident.  

When tested for the first time in his life he wakes up, figures out what matters in life. 

MARIELLA

13  Quiet.  Virtuous. Strong.  Super sensitive to others.  Serious. Sometimes humorless.  Sees her future in academia.

 

She's the 'good one' but smart enough to know when to break rules.

MARTA

 

65  Emmanuel's Grandma. Wrinkled, brown, laughing twinkling eyes.                                                          

Gives off a vibe of obliviousness, yet she's watching all the time, carefully calculating her next move.

HUMBERTO

63  Emmanuel's Granddpa

Task master.  Gruff.  Unsentimental. Deep down, he's kind and observant.

SILVIO

32 Isabel's father. 

Bar owner, 'Donde Mi Apa'.

 

Deeply serious.  Passionate music collector, obsessive chronicler of Colombian heritage music.

 

Smiles once - at the end of the movie

EDGARDO

75  Luz Music Foundation Director.

 

Graciously paternal.  Smiley.  But haunted by deep worries.  

 

Shifts quickly - from silly and playful, to sadly contemplative - depending on whether he's with kids or adults.
