SYNOPSIS: In near future dystopian America, a state in the center of the Continental United States secedes from the Union, forming its own municipality. This land is called The People’s Republic of Freedom of Missouri. We follow Joseph and Margot, two workers for the Ministry of the People’s Republic of Freedom of Missouri. These partners work to infiltrate the ranks of the Jefferson School, a traitorous organization led by Atticus Milbourne, who speaks out against the PRF’s fascist tendencies.
CLEARANCE NEWMAN, 60, MALE – A balding older man in a slick suit. He is a traitor to the People’s Republic of Freedom of Missouri.
JOSEPH ATWOOD, 35, MALE – Works under the sovereignty of the Ministry of the People’s Republic of Freedom alongside Margot Tibbons. He is far more optimistic than his partner, choosing to focus on the satisfaction of the jobs they complete and not their moral connotations.
MARGOT TIBBONS, 35, FEMALE – Works under the sovereignty of the Ministry of the People’s Republic of Freedom alongside Joseph Atwood. Comparatively, Margot is no-nonsense and a realist.

PHILIP, 35, MALE – A sniveling coward of a man who is very quick to anger. He speaks on behalf of the Minister of Censorship.
THE MINISTER OF CENSORSHIP, 50, MALE – A non-speaking man characterized by a large grate covering his mouth and hysterical heavy breathing. He himself is censored.

ATTICUS MILBOURNE, 20, MALE – The charismatic leader of the traitorous Jefferson School.
YOUNG BOY, 9 – 12 – Sings the anthem of the People’s Republic of Freedom.
HOMELESS MAN, AGE UNIMPORTANT – Pees on a telephone pole and is subject to Margot and Joseph during a job.
