BEBE CHOW (LEAD ROLE)
Female. Early to mid-20s. Chinese.  Must speak Chinese as fluently and authentically as a recent immigrant.  Illegally residing in Shaker Heights, Ohio after overstaying her visa, Bebe waits tables for tips at the local Chinese restaurant.  She confides in co-worker Mia (Kerry Washington) that, unable to care for her daughter, she left her baby at the local fire station a year ago.  It comes to light that the baby is being adopted by close friends of the Richardsons, and a well publicized custody battle ensues, pitting Bebe against people with far more money, support and resources than her. But hardly a shrinking violet, Bebe is scrappy and fierce. And finding her daughter fills her with hope as she enters into the fight of her life.
