Role Description

Vernon: (Lead) a high school senior in a small Southwestern town. Born on the wrong side of the tracks, quiet but edgy, someone who knows he doesn’t fit in and given the money and opportunity, would definitely leave town and strike out on his own far away from the small-minded world he grew up in. Raised by a simple-minded, materialistic, single mother, he has a haunted vibe to him; a good kid who knows what is right and is surrounded by shallow human beings with no moral compass. He feels disconnected from the world around him. When he witnesses his best friend gun down their classmates, he is profoundly traumatized and then is accused of participating and gets no chance at "innocent until proven guilty." When he realizes the truth is getting lost in the media swirl, he flees to Mexico, where his best friend Jesus is from, and thinks he has found a better life.
