THE STORY

Two grown orphan brothers live in an old dilapidated house in North Philadelphia.  Older brother Treat provides for his younger brother Phillip by being a petty thief.  Treat kidnaps and ties up a Chicago gangster named Harold intending to hold him for ransom.  Harold escapes and turns the table on the two brothers. In a strange, hilarious and moving way, Harold becomes an important part of the two brothers' lives which neither Treat nor Phillip could have imagined.

TREAT

Older brother (mid to late 20s)  Brutal and violent with a quick temper.  Overprotective of Phillip and takes on the role of father figure in the household.  Far too serious for his age.  Thinks he knows everything.

PHILLIP

Younger brother (early to mid 20s)  Innocent and childlike.  Phillip is not learning disabled.  Treat has kept him sheltered from the world and hidden away in their home so Phillip has never "grown up".  Very athletic and energetic.

HAROLD

(Age 40-60)  Chicago "gangster" who always has the upper hand and control of the room.  Harold recognizes himself in the two brothers and takes them under his wing changing their lives forever.  Harold is serious but always has a glint of humor in his eyes.  He knows more than he lets on.
