BREAKDOWN
After their father’s death, two unhinged siblings reunite with Amy, their movie-loving sister who has Down syndrome Together, they careen down the Great American Long Island Expressway, navigating strip malls, traffic jams and some serious (and not-so-serious) family drama. An unexpected turn reveals the moment that changed their lives…and the fact that Amy may be the only one who knows her own mind.
SEEKING THE FOLLOWING:
SARAH:
33. Married to Bobby. Has brought Bobby to a couples retreat in attempts to mend their broken marriage and convince him that they are making the best possible decision for the family.
BOBBY:
36. Married to Sarah. He is somewhat heavyset. A likeable underdog. Slightly oblivious to the problems in his marriage but willing to attempt a fix to salvage the family.
JACOB:
60’s. Eldest child of the Jewish family, Jacob finds solace in his newly discovered Christianity and juicing. He is tightly wound and clenching to keep it that way. He is disconnected from the family, seeing Amy once a year and Maggie even less than that. He attempts to re-establish his relationship with Amy.
KATHY:
Late 20’s – Mid 30’s. Latina. Devoted caretaker to Amy at her place of residence. She is visibly pregnant. Kathy is no nonsense and doesn’t hesitate to make her opinion known. She is outspoken but takes her job and her patients seriously and remains devoted to their care.
