Jake isn’t exactly sure of what he wants. He’s outwardly mild-mannered, if a little quiet. While his upbringing wasn’t perfect, he’s never had to confront much serious adversity. He is thoughtful and romantic at heart; though often takes his long-term girlfriend for granted. Jake has been pursuing a not-so-lucrative career as a freelance critic while also working in bars and restaurants.
As his life-changing surgery approaches his insecurities and flaws start to get the better of him.
Males, aged 23 to 29
Emily Holmes is sure of herself. Her quiet confidence carries her through life as a decisive, organised, and practical person. She cares deeply for the people closest to her; and ultimately, she’s an optimist. For her, there’s no problem that can’t be fixed by a good list.
Emily works as a shift manager in a hotel; and she’s damn good at her job. She doesn’t get along with everyone though, and gets frustrated when others don’t seem to be trying enough to reach their full potential.
Females, aged 23 to 29
Dr. Amy Cartwright is a curious and considerate general practitioner. Despite being overworked, she makes a concentrated effort to give her patients all her attention when they visit; something she is well-appreciated for.
Jake’s complex condition piques Cartwright’s interest, and so she continually checks in with him through the build-up to his surgery to monitor not only his physical health but his mental health too.
