BREAKDOWN

EMILY: (This role has been cast) 20 year old college student. Brilliant science major.

BEN: Emily's father. 40s. A stay-at-home dad. Former scientist now an inventor. Bit of a dreamer with a dark past.

MICHAEL: Emily's friend and lab partner. A science nerd. Socially naïve.

LUISA: 35-45. Chicana. Hard-working manager of The Melting Pot, a fondue restaurant. A single mom who is ambivalent about motherhood. Emily's boss. A seeker but down to earth. Good sense of humor and irony.

MEDIUM MOLLY: 40-60. A spiritualist with an endearing sense of humor. Practical, direct, and honest. Not a quack. A true professional offering access to the beyond in the way a psychotherapist does.
