A Latin protagonist
Jess is a girl of Latin origins, a central point in this new project. She is also a DREAMer, meaning she is part of a government program created in 2012 under the Obama presidency and designed to allow people illegally led in the United States, such as children, to enjoy, study and work temporarily in the USA. Jess will take over from Benjamin Franklin Gates , the hero played by Nicolas Cage in the films directed by Jon Turteltaub . In the cast we will find Justin Bartha , who in the film saga played the role of Riley Poole .
