Terrified of failure, she is plagued by nightmares and fears that her late father’s schizophrenia is starting to show in her. Tia has ‘hallucinations’ where people around her step outside their living bodies and express their deepest, darkest fears and desires and rages.”

Levi Miller, formerly known from Streamline and Disney’s A wrinkle in time, will play Ben, “a troubled teenager who makes ends meet by writing papers for other students, but he has a hot temper and if he hits another student, he gets expelled.

He has recently made a disturbing discovery about himself, he can force others around him to move according to his will, and that is something that inexplicably draws him in Tia’s direction.”

Bianca “b” Norwood is known from their previous work on WeCrashed, and they will play Ben’s best friend, Corey, who is called “an outsider with tattoos. Corey is a very mature teenager who appears older than they are. They are one step away from expulsion and put more emphasis on looking like a My Chemical Romance song turned anime fan. Corey works at the local diner with Ben and is in his circle of trust, but doesn’t appreciate it when he tries to act as their protector.”

Jackson Kelly (Right man) plays Peter, one of Tia’s closest friends. It is described that “Peter is infatuated with Tia, but she is oblivious to his charm and equally oblivious to his devotion.
