Hank
Hank is a drug dealer living in a caravan dealing with the loss of his son. Due to his lifestyle and upbringing he has always had to show of this 'hard man' image, which can resort to violence, swearing, alcohol and drug abuse. But deep down he has a sensitive soul and the one person he loved the most in the world was his son. When he was with his son, he was himself and happy.
His ten year old son died from a drug overdose and Hank's initial reaction has been one of anger, violence and hitting the bottle/drugs. However, deep down he blames himself and is searching for some kind of redemption or escape from this hell.

Tommy
Hank's mate and partner in crime over the years. Looks up to Hank and respects him. Is sensitive to what Hank has been going through but scared to bring it up. Always projecting his 'hard man' persona but worries for Hank. Hank has always been nice to Tommy unlike most people.

Maria
Drug addict who has had a on/off realationship with Hank over the years, although this is very much sexual and drug fuelled. She can see Hank's sensitive side clearly but has also had to endure his temper and abuse. She is a strong woman and will stand up to Hank and anyone when fully pushed but her drug addiction has dragged her down for years.

This is a very exciting small project. The whole film will be shot from the inside of a caravan. It is a brutal, violent and sad story.
