CHARACTER BIOS:
RICARD, MALE, AGE: 30-40
Ricard is a wiry, glasses-wearing immigrant trying to make it big in the United States. He works as an artist at a tattoo parlor, which is how he is barely able to scrape by. He loves his son and works hard to provide for him, but is ultimately frustrated by him. He soon becomes very sick throughout the film; vomiting, night terrors, and even having bizarre and vivid hallucinations. Although he tries not to show it in front of Palu, he is at his core a very nervous and terrified man, caught in the clutch of something beyond his control.
