Seeking:

FISH
20s, Caucasian, a brutal back alley fighter who has been in and out of jail all of his damn life. He’s lived hard and ain’t done much good. But Cherry is his last shot at redemption and he’s going to try real hard.

CHERRY
20s, Caucasian, Fish’s girlfriend. Feral. She has been living on her own since age 10 and can be tough as razor wire or soft as a feather. She believes in Fish like a dog believes in meat.

DUFFY
20s, Caucasian, Fish’s brother. He’s a car mechanic who barely scratches out a living. He supplements his income by moonlighting as Fish’s cut man in legal and illegal boxing matches. Life ain’t given him much and he don’t expect much. But he’d like to see his big brother not fall in the shit this time. He loves his wife hard and is a good husband and a decent man.

BUG
20s, Caucasian, Duffy’s wife. She is a midwife for the poor and a hard core pragmatist. Most of life has been hard as cement for her, but she has a good husband and they have good, small dreams. And that just might be enough.
