Mercury grew up in the Philippines jungle, and was left for months on her own at 11 years old to care for her siblings. She grew up washing her clothes in the river because they had no water or electricity. As an adult, her unemployed husband’s womanizing and gambling forced her to leave her children and her home to work overseas to support her children as a live-in housemaid. She did this for 10 years, earning only $250 per month, and was only able to see her children once every two years for Christmas. Her children grew up and only knew her as a stranger, but the sacrifice allowed her to send money to feed and support them. Her children were often told “Mommie left them because she did not love them, if she did she would be here.” She is a Queen by all accounts. Tough Mama. Matriarch. Grit.

The only child sent away from her family in the Philippines at 9 to an adopted family in the United States. She was all by herself half a world away from her brothers, sisters, mom, and dad. Quiet, cute, and funny, her playfulness and style makes her special as she is the opposite of her pal Maxly. Make no mistake about it, she barks and bites when someone crosses the line.

Uncle Mike’s right hand man. A driver and confidant, well read and knowledgeable assistant. A quiet killer. He gets it done with no fanfare and without hesitation. A former drug addict who spent many years homeless and couch surfing. Genius.


A longtime friend and fellow crack addict who Mike took in 13 years ago. Mark is a fix it guy. Pumps, faucets, HVAC and pools are his specialty. Also he quits everything at 12 noon for lunch. Very pragmatic. Avid golfer and pain in Mike’s ass. They are inseparable although they can drive each other nuts. Jokester.


A newcomer to the clan, he is a guy who has to listen to old farts telling him he is doing it wrong no matter what he does. They can’t shake his spirit no matter how much they try. It is this redeeming quality that earns their respect. His commitment and loyalty and just won’t quit attitude is a bright spot for them. Newbie.


They come as a package. They have never separated since they got married. Ever. Not for a minute nor night. Their wild fashions and dress and outgoing positive personality is a breath of fresh air. Here are two people that are living the American dream as immigrants. He is an Italian from Brazil and she is a demanding dame from Budapest, Hungary. They are hot shot realtors and great friends who love to party. Dynamic Duo.


A quick and sharp 9 year old girl with all of the trappings of a performer waiting to shine. Dance, song, piano, or gymnastics awaits this little cantankerous at times 9 year old going on 26 sensation to be. She inserts herself into the narrative like a seasoned actress demanding a close up. Cheeky Innocence.


A 10 year old autistic boy whose smiles and imaginations float him through his days. He is a very intelligent specimen with a devious nature to his shenanigans, often being caught trying to download gaming favors. He smiles, is non-confrontative, and struggles communicating with others, thus doesn’t have many friendships yet. Bargaining Bouncing Boy.
