Whenever you’re with him, he makes you feel like the most important person in the room. Ana (Cuban, 50’s): Ana is loud, unpredictable, and pretty self involved. She leads the life of a twenty year old and disregards any social norms. As the middle sister, there is always a great deal of jealousy and need to prove herself in front of Martica. Underneath all the exterior, Ana means well and cares deeply about her family. Eric/Anthony (Caucasian, 30’s): Eric, A wholesome, handsome, All-American dude.

Although by this point he is more American than Cuban, he still carries himself like he just got off the boat. Vero (Cuban, 40’s): Smart, affectionate, and passive aggressive. Vero struggles with speaking her mind. Her passions and feelings have always taken a backseat to her husband’s needs.
