STORY: THE LAND tells the story of four teenage boys who devote their summer to escaping the streets of Cleveland to pursue a dream life of professional skateboarding.  But when they get caught in the web of a local drug Queen-pin, their motley brotherhood is tested, threatening to make this summer their last.

CISCO: MALE 16-18, ETHNICALLY AMBIGUOUS, CISCO is very quiet and attentive.  He’s the ringleader and the brains behind every operation, good or bad.  He is a reckless rebel, though he has a reason for almost every crime he commits.  Cisco is sharp, but uses his skills for selfish reasons.  Cisco appears as fearless due to his rowdy behavior, but underneath his tough surface he’s a scared child who fears being alone.  His mother died of a drug overdose when he was a small child and he was left to live with her pimp/junkie – UNCLE STEVE.  He’s an outcast and feels very abandoned, which is why he’s so independent and attached to his crew…LEAD, MUST HAVE BASIC SKATEBOARD SKILLS, OR ABLE TO LEARN QUICKLY.

BOOBIE: MALE 16-18, AFRICAN AMERICAN, He has a rugged outward appearance, however, he’s a ‘clean cut’ kid.  Boobie is the voice of reason.  He’s not afraid to voice his opinion and he constantly reminds the group of the consequences behind every action.  He’s more mature than the rest of his friends and the most talented skater of the group.  The difference between his skating and Cisco’s is disciplined.  Boobie plays it safe when it comes to skating and life.  He lives with both his parents and his father is a lineman at a Toxic Waste Factory.  The family works overtime to keep up with the bills, which is the reason Boobie agrees to sell Molly.  Thus taking care of himself and removing any pressure from his father…LEAD, MUST HAVE BASIC SKATEBOARD SKILLS, OR ABLE TO LEARN QUICKLY
