Ben is an Asian-American teenager with a physical disability and a deep passion for music. However, his traditionalist father has very different plans for his son’s life. When Chloe, Ben’s best friend, confronts him with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Ben must make a decision: appease his father and give up his passion, or pursue music—and his subsequent happiness—wholeheartedly.

Character Breakdown / Project Needs
Characters:
Ben Hoang (M, Vietnamese or half-Vietnamese, 18+)
*Actors with disabilities are highly encouraged to audition. Ability to play piano is a plus, but not required.
**Actors should be able to pass for 17/18 years old.
*Ben is a high school-aged boy with a physical disability that requires him to use a cane. Music is his greatest love—a connection he has with his late mother, as well as the disability he inherited from her. While Ben is respectful and understanding of his father’s overbearing nature, he can’t so easily shunt his love of music to the side, despite his father’s wishes.

Binh Hoang (M, Vietnamese or half-Vietnamese, 40-55y/o):Binh is a successful engineer, grieving husband, and father to Ben. Not only is he very traditional in the way he parents Ben, but he’s also very protective over his son, especially in the wake of his wife’s death. While he loves his son more than anything and wants him to be successful, he disapproves of Ben’s wish to pursue music, believing it to be an ultimately unfulfilling path.

Chloe (F, all ethnicities welcome, 18+)
*African-American, Latina, and Pacific Islander actors especially encouraged.
**Actors should be able to pass for 17/18 years old.
Chloe shares Ben’s passion of music, being a very talented singer herself. Music has always been an integral part of her life and upbringing, and she wants to see Ben flourish as a pianist. Due to their cultural differences, she has a hard time understanding why Ben is quick to bend to his father’s whim, but as his best friend, she offers him her unyielding support and encouragement.
