V is Valerie’s inner demon who drives her into reckless behavior. She tells Valerie daily that she is alone, she always has been and always will be. She will die alone. And if no one else cares about her, then why should she. So why not have some fun on the way out?

Andy (30s) has successfully navigated sobriety and wants to help others. He runs an AA meeting at the community center and encourages others to be vulnerable

Nurse: He’s a “mean nurse” with a heart of gold. He doesn’t take any nonsense and will make you follow directions but only because he cares about his patients.
