[JOHN] 30 years old, Male, 1st generation Afro-Cuban. Ambitious, no-nonsense, and protective. An Uber driver in Miami. His world and language shift dextrously between English and Spanish. Proud, defensive, sexual, charismatic, a first generation immigrant working his way up the ladder, he has no patience for privilege. He appreciates the pleasures of life, but is an uncompromising realist.
[JULIE] 25 years old, Female. A Miami socialite, daughter of a real estate mogul, Colombian and gringa. (ALREADY CAST)
[CHRISTINE] 35 years old, Female. A cocktail waitress, just moved to the US from Venezuela. (ALREADY CAST)
Story line: It's Art Basel, Miami's week-long festival where the rich and famous party with impunity. Julie reigns queen at the South Beach hotel owned by her real estate mogul father. Tonight he’s thrown a decadent blowout but when her fiancé breaks up with her in front of the crowd, Julie hides out in the storage kitchen, humiliated and devastated. She is comforted by Christine, a cocktail waitress from crisis-ridden Venezuela, whom her father has paid to get her home discretely. Christine calls her fiancé, John, an Uber driver from the Miami slums. But Julie refuses to let the night end unless it’s on her terms...A bold and contemporary take on Strindberg’s Miss Julie from a writer of the Emmy-nominated The Americans.
