CARRIE WATTS (Age Mid-60’s.): An aging woman of great will and conviction who longs to return to the home of her youth, Bountiful. She is feisty, earthy, mischievous, sometimes hard, often tender. Her gaze is backward, even as she plans her future.

He lives in a small Houston apartment with his wife and with his mother. His mother traded their family home for his education. He is nervous, amiable, childless, sometimes defeated and usually passive. He is hopeful about his new job.
