JOHN DAVIS [Gender: Male – Age: 20-25 – Race: Mixed or African-American]
John is a young, homeless male prostitute trying to make it on the streets of Atlanta. John’s deepest desire is to have a connection with his father and live like a normal kid. He desperately wants out of this life, but with no family and nowhere turn, his chances at survival are slim.

SUGAR [Gender: Female – Age: 40-45 – Race: Caucasian or African-American]
Sugar is a hardened, crack addicted prostitute who is John’s only companion. To John, she is part friend and part pimp. As a preteen, Sugar was molested by her father and by her early teens, he had begun prostituting her to his friends. Over time she developed a hardened shell, but inside of her still lives a small girl who longs for a decent family and a normal life.

Paul is an older, kindly shop owner and recovering alcoholic. He is the first person in a long time to notice John and becomes a key figure in his transformation.

Walter is a closeted gay policeman who, instead cleaning up the local prostitution ring, seeks out John’s services and takes from him much more than he asks for.
