The Block - Characters - Julie and Jerry

Every neighborhood should have a couple like Julie and Jerry. Young, carefree, fun-loving, and fit, they seem almost too perfect. But these are real people who harbor real secrets; and they're finding that the more open their lives become as they entwine themselves into the block's social scene, the harder it is to keep their darker natures private.

We all build walls around us. Some of us do so to keep the ubiquitous negative forces at a distance. Others, like Julie and Jerry, might build theirs to keep those forces close.
