Acting experience is not necessary. The right look is.
Amos just moved back to his home country of the United States from South Africa after his parents' recent divorce. Fighting with his three brothers, he wants to go live with his dad thousands of miles away. To do that, he has to convince one of his brothers to move with him, splitting up the siblings and leaving their mom. The only thing standing in his way is his older brother who refuses to break up the already fractured family.
BREAKDOWN OF ROLES
[ABEL] 12 to 16 years old, Caucasian male. tall, slender, non-athletic, intellectual look.
A brilliant and effeminate genius. His intellect manifests in every situation whether to manipulate his brothers or win an argument. He always wants to maintain power and authority.
[AMOS] 12 to 16 years old, Caucasian male. tall, athletic but skinny. A brooding rebel, Amos carries the weight of his parents divorce like an anchor around his neck. He can't find forgiveness for his mother or acceptance of his current circumstances
[AARON] 12 to 16 years old, Caucasian male. a smiley goofy kid. A loving peacemaker, Aaron is the glue that holds his brothers together. He loves games, but doesn't compete. He feels most fulfilled having a deep conversation and feeling needed.
[ZACHARIA] 12 to 16 years old, Caucasian male. scrawny, big eyes. A bright mind and warm heart hides behind the long shadow his older brothers. He soaks up everything like a sponge but is easily forgotten.
