Role Description

Milan: (Lead) boy whose greatest dream is to be a magician. Walks through the streets of New York and pays attention to every single detail of his environment. Thinks with his magic wand he is able to make the leaves move in the wind, let the doves fly, the traffic lights change to green, elevator doors open and sometimes even people smile. Looks up to his father, his role model. Therefore his beliefs change when his father opens up his eyes and makes him aware that all these thinks are not caused by him because he is also capable to let these events occur or they are just ordinary events which happen frequently. In the beginning he refuses to believe so. Instead he is convinced that therefore his father must be a magician too. Thus his father asks him to let his teddy bear magically move. He naturally struggles to do so and his hopes of becoming a magician are shattered. He is devastated and gives his dream up by breaking his wand symbolically. He stops seeing the beauty and magic in the small things happening around him. In a foreshadow of 20 years he walks down the street hand in hand with his daughter and gives her a present, it’s a Magic wand.
