BREAKDOWN

Burning passion, cunning deception and outrageous melodrama combine in this enormously entertaining homage to Latin American soap operas. A storm brews in the small town of Bellarica, Mexico, when two baby girls are born on the same night in the same hospital. One will have wealth and privilege, and the other will live in poverty. Yet the drama is bound to unfold when a former beauty queen switches the babies at birth in her lust for power. Eighteen years later, fate finds the two girls together again, prompting secrets to be revealed and lies to be unraveled. After all, nothing is impossible in Bellarica!

SEEKING:
HORTENCIA DEL RIO/AS CAST (Female, 35 – 50, Latinx, Alto) A poor and beautiful, grounded, smart, and loving woman who lives with her husband Ernesto on a farm on the outskirts of Bellarica. In order to help pay for the needs of her beloved sick daughter Victoria, she becomes a maid and nanny to Fabiola, the richest woman in town, and cares for Fabiola’s sad, sensitive, and spoiled daughter Pilar. She sings one song.
ARMANDO CASTILLO/AS CAST (Male, 50 – 75, Latinx) The rich, elegant, and arrogant owner of The Castillo Casino. He is the most powerful and wealthy man in town. He lost his first beloved wife in a boating accident and is now married to the scheming former beauty queen Fabiola. Their daughter Pilar dreams of being a poet. Armando loves his daughter, but only on his terms and dreams of wedding her off to increase his casino empire. He is estranged from his son from his first marriage, Sebastian, at Fabiola’s urging.
DR JORGE RAMIRO MENDOZA/CASINO DEALER/COP/AS CAST (Male, 40 – 60, Latinx) The corrupt head of Bellarica’s hospital. An arrogant and scheming doctor, he handles Victoria’s heart surgeries and care. He falls madly in love with Hortensia and goes through great lengths to be in her presence. He disparages his estranged son Dr. Diego for being a king, hardworking doctor dedicated to healing the poor.
