In every group of slackers, there is always one member with the will power to take on life matters more serious than their companions, and the potential to make a difference. Thatís Suge---the only one with a real job, and the only one with an idea of responsibility out of his close-knit group of friends. But when he is challenged by Perks, the dominant antagonist and friend to use his workplace as a heist goldmine, Suge must decide to follow Perks' lead, or take a lead of his own and break from the pack.

SUGE: 20. Male / 18-24 yrs. / African American. SUGE is the protagonist and acts as the voice of reason among the group. He is the most successful because he is the only one with a job. He feels the robbery is a bad idea because he works for the store they're trying to steal from, and has the most to lose. He also has difficulty turning his back on his friends whom he considers to be his brothers. They have been through it all together; but now he faces the conflict of riding with his boys or doing the right thing and breaking away from the pack.
PERKS: 20 Male / 18-24 yrs. / African American. PERKS is the antagonist and thinks of himself as the brains of the operation. He is of smaller stature, but commands a room with his presence. Perks wants money, thinking it will bring him happiness; however he is not willing to work for it responsibly. He feels that he was dealt a bad hand in life and rather than working hard to change his situation, he blames his lack of success on his environmental circumstances. He derives the idea to rob the clothing store to start a business. He is a confident speaker, but is really clueless about what he is doing.
BOOM: 21 Male / 18-24 yrs. / African American. BOOM is a secondary character and the pretty-boy of the group. He pulls the ladies in with his debonair smile and smooth talk. He has been friends with Suge, Perks, and Fries since moving from his hometown, Hyde Park, California. Boom has a desire to be a model thinking his pretty looks are being wasted, feels this heist could aid him, and finally break into the modelling world.
FRIES: 19 Male / 18-24 yrs. / Any Ethnicity. FRIES is also a secondary character, and the youngest of the group. Fries has dealt with being bullied in his life (mostly because of his weight) and turns to food as a source of comfort. Perks and Fries have both experienced bullying in their life and have bonded because of it. Fries looks to Perks for support and encouragement. As his closest confidant, he will do anything Perks asks. Physical traits: Chubby, big-bodied
