Descriprtion of Characters


Jon is a jung man full of dreams. He counts the days until he turns 30 while he waits for success. He is a composer and fights for his new master piece „Superbia“. But nobody is blown away by his piece. Instead of the finiancial hit he hoped for, Jon is forced to work in a diner to pay his bills.

Despite his obvious flop he sees his life with a charming humor and postpones his long-due decision. He’s enjoying the bright sight of life with his girlfriend Susan and his best friend Micheal.

But how much must Jon give up to achieve his dream? Who is holding him back and who is supporting him? What will the future bring for him?



Susan is Jons girlfriend. She is a dancer, beatiful, likable and intelligent. Susan earns her money by giving dance lesson to kids, instead of dancing professionally herself. But this does not annoy her. She wishes for a house at the sea and a touch more reliability in her life.

Eventhough Susan admires Jon for his ambitions and life goals she desires more attention and a final decision. She can not take his insecurity any longer.

Will their love survive their different the hard times ahead?
