Sides are unique pages, usually taken out of a script in order to help the actor prepare for the audition. The sides are the most important thing that helps the actor to rehearse the part. They are usually sent by the casting office to the actor or to his/her representative. In some cases the actor can download them himself as a pdf or word format, and print them. Many sites take money for this service. You can use this service for FREE at Actors Pages.

EXT CAR PARK - CALLE OCHO MIAMI - NIGHT
CAMERA SWOOPS DOWN through the trees as a taxi pulls up in front of a mobile restaurant (Lonchera)in the car park. The area is roped off with festive lights and has clearly been the favorite local hang out for some years. Family and friends gather outside in groups around makeshift tables and chairs. The salsa music blares, kids are chasing dogs, and plates are piled high with Miami’s best Latin food. The action centers around ENRIQUE AND MARIA TORRES who are in their late forties. It’s their restaurant, built with their personality and sweat, over the years. The taxi pulls right up into the car park and GLORIA steps out of the cab. She’s hesitant, not completely recovered from her dog-food experience at Gama Gamma an hour ago.
INSIDE THE RESTAURANT WAGON
ENRIQUE sees his daughter and breaks into a big smile -- he calls out to his wife.
Well look who’s here.., our little chiquita Mia’s back.
Yeah? something’s wrong.
No! Why does something always have to be wrong?
She just come back to see her parents. She loves us.
Go find out what’s wrong, I’ll take care of these orders.
Enrique throws down his apron, steps out of the wagon’s kitchen, and greets his daughter with a big smile and a hug.
Bombon de chocolate, estas de vuelta!
It’s so good to see you.
Thanks, I need a hug right now.
Maria looks over at Enrique from the kitchen and gives him that “I told you so” look.
Here, sit here at the family table. You want something to eat?
No! Nothing to eat!
Enrique is taken aback by her response and tries to comfort his daughter.
Hey, hey, hey, you don’t like our food anymore?
No that’s not it, I love your food. That’s why I’m here.
But... you don’t want to eat any of it?
No! I’ll throw up if I eat anything.
Gloria looks up at him with big eyes about to cry. Enrique sees he needs help.
OOh...Maybe your mother can help.... Maria?
She’s beside them in a flash, Mothering Gloria.
Hello baby. Come here, tell me all about it.
Enrique watches them go to another table.
OK. I guess I’ll take care of those orders...
