Claire, at the beginning of the film, finds her mother’s lifeless body in the front of the house. She constantly wears a scarf to hide the bruises on her neck to hide the fact she’s abused at home. Kevin, who just moved into the city, starts to wonder about her scarf. He begins to befriend the girl who wants nothing to do with him. The father lashes out at her in front of her new friend who later tries to save the day. Everything is not what it seems.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

Claire- innocent/quiet doesn’t really care about other people. Not very open about her problems… or family issues.

Kevin- Energetic, total opposite of Claire, will fight for what is right. Usually sarcastic/dry sense of humor.

Henry- Claire’s father, alcoholic, abusive, super grumpy, depressed, resentful of his daughter. Looks dirty, has stains over stains. Doesn’t shower often, once every week if lucky. Is ignored throughout the neighborhood.

Naomi- Claire’s mother is the nicest person you would ever know, religious, is missing throughout the film. (all we need is a photoshoot)
