Ana (2020) Script

Hi, I'm Congressman Jose Maria Vega.

And with your help, I am going to put Puerto Rico back on the map again.

If I am re-elected, I will make sure that our schools, our hospitals, and our church organizations that have been doing such amazing work for the community, receive all the support they deserve.

You can trust me on that.

We are going to rebuild somehow, some way.

I think we did a fantastic job in Puerto Rico.

Thanks to the business incentives I have already implemented, I think we can all agree the powerhouse that is the Puerto Rican economy is booming once again.

Is the crisis getting you down?

Are you feeling confused? Worried?

Relax, what you need is a new car.

No credit? No problem.

Bad credit? No problem.

Bankruptcy? No problem.

We have certified bank officials on site who will arrange a car loan that's right for you instantly.

And this weekend, it's my "Name Your Price" extravaganza.

We have live music, we have pinchos, Brinca-brinca for the kids, because as we say in Morales Alto, we can't solve the crisis, but we can sell you a new car.

And that's my promise to you.


My name is Rafa.

Rafa Rodriguez.

And I'm offering you the best used autos in all of Puerto Rico.

If you can find a better price on any of these models, I will pay the difference, and that is my offer to you.

Rafa Quality Cars!

Hello, I'm...

Hello, my name is Rafa.

Rafa Rodriguez.

And I'm offering you the best used cars in all of Puerto Rico.

If you can f...

Hey! What's going on?


Let's go. Get out of the car.


Open the door and get out of the car.

Get out of the...

Not through the window.

How did you get in there? It was locked.

With a slim Jim.

Get out of here.

Give me back my Slim Jim.

I'm gonna give you back your Slim Jim.


I'm gonna call the cops.


Hello, my name is Rafa.

Rafa Rodriguez, and I'm bringing you the best used autos in all of Puerto Rico.

If you can find a better price...

I thought I told you to get out of here.

Why aren't you at school?

Shut, because of the crisis.

Still no power.

Anyway, what are you doing?

I am making a commercial.

Shouldn't you be a bit more...


Like the guys on TV?

Show some hustle.

I was getting to the hustle.

You wanna do me a favor?

Go home.


My mom got arrested.

That was her?

You only just moved in, right? Mm-hmm.

You have any relatives to stay with?


Trying to run a business, you can't stay here.

Oh, yeah, I have an aunt.

But I need a ride.

"Hello, my name is Rafa.

Rafa Rodriguez.

And that is my promise to you."

Yes, very funny.

Do you have a wife?

Got any kids?

Geez, just making polite talk.

I have two boys, all grown up.

How much further is this?

Um, here.

This is it?


Not so fast, I have angina.

Forgot which one.

Home sweet home.

Where's your aunt?

Probably moved to Florida, you know?

Most people do if they can.

Okay, well, thanks for the ride.

Oh, no, no. You can't stay here.

Titi won't mind.

What's Titi's last name?



Yeah, Rodriguez.

What a coincidence, that's my name.

So? Lots of people in Puerto Rico called Rodriguez.

Hello? - Directory assistance.

I'd like the number for Social Services.

No! Yes. San Juan, yes, I'll hold.

You can't do that!

They'll put me with foster parents.


They take in kids just to get the money.

And some of them even interfere with them.

You know what that means? The word "interfere"?

No, but if that happened to me, that one would be on you.

Come on, let's go. Gotta get back to work.

Did you have a fight with your sons?

Is that why you don't see them?

They stay with their mom.

And we don't talk much.

I guess we're both on our own.

What's that island?

It's not an island. It's Florida.

It's where I'm from.

You came from Florida to Puerto Rico?

That's right.

Why? Good question.

They were supposed to give me one more month to pay.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait!

You're supposed to give me one more month!

The bank said installments!

Hey! Wait, wait, wait. Hey!



Oh, shit!

Did he just steal all your cars?

Just go, will you?

We're done here.

Yeah, is tonight a good night to see Jupiter?



God bless you, princesa.


Hey, Diego.

What the hell were you thinking?

Because even winners lose sometimes.

Five thousand dollars.

It was a big bet, Rafa.

Never understand why people bet so big when they need money.

I don't need money. Things are good.

So shall we say... two days?


I'll give you five.

It can be hard to get a hold of cash right now.

Sounds good. I'm easy.

Just one thing.

Don't push it, Rafa.

We out of luck.


Are you insane?



You bet $5,000!

Stop breaking into my car.

You seriously thought a rooster would solve all of your problems?

I need $10,000 to get my cars back from the bank.

Without my cars, I have no business.

Without my business, I have no income.

Without income, I have no home.

Look. You've got four days, 23 hours, and 36 minutes to pay that guy.

And we need a real plan, you know?

Like, show some hustle.

What is it with this "we" thing?

There is no "we" here.

I can help you.

Come on, let's go, Joe.

I saw what they do to people who don't pay on time.

What's your name?


My name is Rafa.

I know.

It says it on your car lot.

Night, Rafa.

Good night.

Do you WhatsApp him?

Ana, leave that. Come on.

Sit down. Have some breakfast.

"Rafael Rodriguez.

Auto Trader Magazine Car Dealer.

Year 2002. Runner up."

You won.

Runner up. Come on. Sit down. Have your breakfast.

You should have it here so that people can see it.

Okay, sure. Thanks.

Listen, don't... Don't hold... go like this... don't hold it.

You're not gonna kill somebody with it.

Hold it like this.

Like that. Like that.

No, that's not good. Come on. Stop. Stop that.

Don't do that. You know better.

Where are we going?

To see if your mom's home.

See? Gate's open. She's back.

Mom's douchebag boyfriend.

Okay, so he can take care of you.

Go. Uh-uh.

Come on. Let's go. I got things to do.

Get up, crackhead!

You shut up, bitch!

Let me in! Open the gate!

Keep shaking the gate like that and you see what happens.

What you doing with this kid?

Bringing her home.

Ana, get back here!

How you dare behave like this after I talked to you before?

Show some respect, okay?

You mean you.

Why should I respect you?

Get away from me. You can't tell me what to do.

I'm the one putting food on the table.

Come back here!

So, you are the guy who's taking care of my kid?

Aren't you the guy from the car lot?


So, where is she?

She didn't wanna come in.

I'm sorry. I can't look after your child.

Man, just chill out. I'm gonna be out in a week.

Maybe even less, okay?

She needs to go to Social Services.

You take her there, I'm never gonna see her again, okay?

I'm not asking for much.

Just take care of her for a couple days, man.

I'd do the same for you.

If you were in trouble, I'd take care of your kid.

Where is the father? I don't know, man.

Somewhere in Palmas del Mar, I think.

He's never around.

What am I supposed to do?

If I take her to him, is he gonna understand?

Understand what? That I'm a screw-up?

Listen, this is not about you. This kid needs a parent.

You gotta call him.

I don't have his number.

Give me his name.

I'll keep you posted.

Thank you.

I'm taking you to your father's house.

Sure, like he'd even know who I am.

Well, he better, because I'm driving halfway across the island.

You like that?

Do you?

I found it in my phone.

I'm putting in your telephone number in case we get separated.

Do you want my number?


Here. Put this address in your GPS.

The one on top.

Is that where my dad live?

No. It's on the way.

Somebody owes me money.

It'll only be a minute. Stay in the car.

Rafa. Hi.

Sorry, I hope you don't mind. I was in the neighborhood.

No, no. Of course. Come in, please.


Who's this?

My name's Ana. I'm Rafa's neighbor.

He's giving me a ride to my papi 's house.

May I use your bathroom?

Of course.

Hey, don't touch that.

You look amazing. Thank you. Likewise.

Rafael and I go way back.

We met when he opened his first car lot.

Good times, right?

Good times.

And let me tell you, this guy used to love to party.

We used to go dancing.


He was always very kind to me.

Oh, bathroom.

Top of the stairs.

Do you want some iced tea?

Thank you.

Puerto Rico investigates.

We asked him about his campaign donations, where he gets them from, and what exactly is his connection to the Church of the Well of God.

All that and more, coming up next.

Let me make this quite clear, okay?

I have heard all the stories about my campaign funds being used for money laundering, all right?

And how I supposedly help certain church organizations, you know, embezzle funds to buy condos in Florida.

And I also heard that... that even they say that... that I feed my enemies to... to crocodiles.

I mean, this is ridiculous, guys.

Please, come on.

I mean, this is... this is fake news.

It's even worse than fake news.

So, how's business?

Well, uh...

Actually, not what I would like.

Thank you.


Camila, come on.

He was always very kind to me.

Would you like some iced tea, sweetheart?


How much does she owe you? What?

How much does she owe you?

Like a thousand dollars.

She's good for it.

You don't know that.

She's got that screwed up there, and a shit ton of perfume, the expensive kind, not spray.

He needs the money you owe him.

I mean, only if... only... only if you... if you... if, if it's, you know, if it's convenient at this time.

It's not exactly...

Rafa, I feel dreadful.

The crisis is affecting us all in so many ways right now. I...

You got the car out front.

I mean, I can't even afford to run it.

What, with gas prices... Then you won't miss it.

We have our own tow truck.

It's a small one.

A thousand plus the hundred I made us at the bar.

We make a good team, right?

I'm taking you to your father's house.

I don't need your help.

Sure, you don't.

You'll be fine when those guys come after you.

You need gas.

Wait in the car.

Want me to go pay?

Hi, can you put 20 on pump four?

Have you had enough politicians who lie and cheat and make promises they can't keep?

Well, now's your chance to make a real change.

Vote for Congressman José Maria Vega and...

Do you have a restroom?

Out back.

Is it clean? Or kind of icky?

This is a gas station, honey.

Sometimes if it's really bad, I prefer to wait. One time I...

Are you going to give me the 20 bucks?

Shoot! I forgot to take it. Then you get it.

I'll go get it, then I need your restroom.

Vote Vega, the only politician you can really trust.

Oh, do you sell gummy bears? No.

Let's go, Joe.

Go! Go!

I just made us 20 bucks.

You didn't pay?

What are you doing?


No, no, no, no, no!

Now you're gonna go back in there, you're gonna say you're sorry and give her back the $20.

Like hell I am. You can't make me.

You're not my mother.

By the way, your mother's in jail, and that's exactly where you're gonna end up if you don't start doing the right thing.

Now go in there, tell her you're sorry.

What if I tuck it in the pump?

Go in there and say you're sorry.

Tell her you made an error in judgment.


Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay.

Put your hands up. Now!

The floor.

You saw nothing!

...the fifth of August for the Church of the Well of God Summer Spectacular at the San Juan Arena.

Join us for an afternoon of song, prayer, and the celebration of God with your prophet, Pastor Helen.

You okay?

...the more you give, the more you shall receive.

They're gone.

I forgot to give her the 20 bucks.

What are you doing?

I wanna show you something.

Why are we staring at some dumb pond?

Thanks a bunch.

Now I'm all wet!

It's a blowhole.

You just have to wait for the right wave.

The wave comes in underneath the rocks and it blows out the blowhole.

Be careful, or you're gonna end up like Saint Tino.

You ever heard the story of Saint Tino?


Saint Tino was a local farmer who was crippled, couldn't walk well.

Be careful.

And he was walking his cow, stopped by the water, and the cow fell into the lagoon and dragged Tino into the lagoon.

The rope that Tino was holding got tangled in his leg and, ooh, pulled him into the lagoon, and this lagoon is really deep.

And he was going down and he knew he was gonna drown, and that was it.

As he was going down, God took pity on him because Tino...

Listen to this.

He was a good man, he was humble, and he was honest.

Suddenly, a wave came and blew Tino out of the blowhole, up into the sky and landed him on the grass.

God saved his life.

And was he cured?

What? Was he cured?

Like, he was no longer a cripple.

No, I think he was still crippled.

That's not such a great story.

What happened to the cow? The cow?

Cow drowned.

You have one new message.

Rafa, in case you were thinking, I don't need any used cars, okay?

Just so we're clear, I need to be paid in cash.

How are you gonna get the rest of the money?

You sure we going the right way?

Yup. Next right.

You definitely put in your father's address?

Check that map again.

You sure?


This doesn't have a signal.

It doesn't?

I guess it just dropped out, but this was definitely the right way.

I don't remember seeing any water on the map.

You did this on purpose!

Don't shout at me.

I'm only eleven.

I don't have time for this, Ana.

Oh, you think I don't know that?

Just see if you can get a signal.

Will you not jump on my car?

Give me the phone.

You've got a flat.




See that?

I... I lost my jack.

I wouldn't suppose you have a spare jack you can lend me?



There you are.

I got us a jack.


Okay, here we go.

Thank you very much. We appreciate it.

We need to buy cañita and sell it.

Are you out of your mind? It's illegal.

If you get busted, you're gonna end up like your mother, in jail.

I don't get you.

You put a lot of money on a dumb gallo, but you won't do something like this?

It is against the law.

I'm not a criminal.

I'm a car salesman.

Without any cars.

When are you gonna show some hustle?

It says there's a bar.

It's open 24 hours.

Exactly the right kind of place to make a sale.

Go on. Stay in the car.

Good? Hey.

If you might be interested in buying some...


What? - Cañita.

Why are you whispering? I'm not sure.

Is it good? It's very good.

You're gonna show me?

Bring it in?



What the hell you doing?

People will totally love this color.

They'll think it's flavored.

Flavored is a big seller.

You know, fruits.

I mean, that's what they say.

It's cool, right?


Yeah, that's not gonna fly.

Is it the color?

That's Smurf blue. It's what the kids like.

That's not a kids' drink.

Great idea!


You should call your sons sometime.

They might like to hear from you.

We're here.

We're done for the night.

Unless you wanna drive.

Certified bank officials on site who will arrange a car loan that's right for you instantly.

And this weekend, in my "Name Your Price" extravaganza, we have live music, we have pinchos, Brinca-brinca for the kids, because as we say...

The money raised in our church goes to helping our community.

We're in the middle of a crisis right now.

These are the times that as a community, we come together and help others.

We saw Congressman Vega here a few minutes ago...

I'm good, thanks.

What's your connection to him?

Congressman Vega is helping in any way possible to get us out of this crisis.

He's a huge supporter of our church.

We love him dearly.

Hello? - What's going on, Rafa?

Hey. How you doing, Diego?

I'm at your car lot, and it's empty.

It's because I sold all my cars.

I told you business was good.

I'm down south buying stock.

Just relax.

You're gonna get your money.

I hope so, Rafa.

I really do.



I gotta take you, Ana.



This looks great. You're gonna enjoy it here.

Is Javier home?

He's in the garden playing with the kids.

Who should I say wants to see him?


One moment. Thank you.


It's your daughter, Ana.

Her mother is incapacitated.

I don't have a daughter called Ana.

With all due respect, this is your daughter and she needs a place to stay.

Javier? What is it?

They got the wrong family.

Are we clear?

May we go now, please?

You know what we need?

Some ice cream.

Wait here.

Hi! I got some presents. Vote please.

Tell your mom and your dad to vote for Vega, okay?

When they come back from shopping, make sure to tell them.

Señor Vega will make Puerto Rico great again.

Go Vega!


Ana! Ana!

Ana, come on, I have angina!




Hey! What you doing here?

I'm looking for someone.

I'm someone.

What do you want? I got...

Oh, no. A girl.

We got girls.

A young girl.

Il our girls are young, chico.

Really young. Like, ten years old.

No, no, no! She's from my neighborhood.

She's a neighbor. I'm looking after her.

I'm looking after her. Just looking after her.

Hey, hey!



Hey! Where's my car?


I'm sorry I ran away, okay?

But I got back and this guy broke in and drove it off...


The GPS says it's Jackie's Repair Shop on Calle Sicilia.

I can't see anything.

Listen, just stay calm.

Wait for me, stay in the car, I'll be right there.

I'm hiding under myjacket.

Okay. I'm here. I'm here.

I see... Okay, I'm here. I see it. I see it.

I see it.

See me?

Come on, come on.

You okay?


Excuse me?

Excuse me?


This car was stolen. It's my car.

Somebody stole my car and brought it over here.

I want my car back.


I'm talking to you. Hey!

Sir... have my papi's car.

I know the crisis is affecting us all in so many ways right now, but since my older brothers left the island, and my mother passed, my papi has had to raise me all by himself.

And all the time, he has had to carry on cleaning gas station toilets.

I've spent my life in that car.

That car is my home.

Please, señor, don't destroy it.

Okay, I'll give you 400 cash, right now.

Maybe you should start buying and selling used cars.

Are you at least gonna thank me?

Come on, get out of the car.

Get out of the car. Now what?

Come on, come here.

What do you want me to thank you for, huh?

Breaking into my car and then causing me to lose my stock?

Oh, sure, like that one's on me now.

Or maybe I should thank you for almost getting beaten up or maybe killed because I went into the barrio looking for you, and some thugs thought I was a pervert.

A what? A pervert!

A pervert! Forget it!

Listen, I'm done going throughout this island acting like a babysitter.

I know you don't take responsibility for any...

Okay, watch me take responsibility.

Let's go. Wait!

Stop it! Come on, let's go. Come on!

Stop! Come on.

Let go! Let's go.

Come on, I'll show you a little responsibility.

Let go! Come on.

Get off, you're squishing my arm!

This church is gonna look after you.

'Cause, frankly, right now, I can't help you anymore.

And if you're lucky, you're gonna find some help in there.

Now, go.

Fine, you don't think you need help?

Well, I do.

Say, hallelujah!


Say, hallelujah!


♪ Sing hallelujah ♪

♪ Hallelujah ♪

♪ Hallelujah ♪ The gospel tells us that Jesus addresses each individual he encounters, whether rich or poor, in terms of their common humanity, not in terms of their bank accounts.

Reminds me of one my favorites, John 12.

We heard how Mary took an expensive ointment to anoint the feet of Jesus.

"But why was this ointment not sold for 300 denarii and given to the poor?" asked his disciples accusingly.

Despite their protest, Jesus received the gift well worth a year's wages for most people.

This is the same Jesus who was born in a stall, the same Jesus who died on a trash heap.

What does this tell us about our Lord?

It tells us that Jesus in His infinite wisdom, His infinite wisdom, a wisdom that is sometimes perplexing, yet always greater than ours, allowed us to enjoy the fruits of our labor while still on earth.


I'm only here with you a limited time, but let me be an example of what one can achieve through God's blessing.

Can I hear "amen"? Amen!

The crisis that He has sent this island, we all share together, is His will.


He knows.

He knows we struggle.

While across the water we imagine the wealth of others.


This is God's challenge to the people of Puerto Rico, a challenge we shall overcome.




And remember, remember.

The more we all give, the more we receive.

Hallelujah! Amen.


Amen! Amen.

In a church?

Are you out of your mind?

Oh, in case you forgot.

You don't think I could've taken care of all that by now if I hadn't been stuck with you?

Stuck with me? Yes.

You're showing some hustle around here.

Excuse me, sir?

Four hundred and ten, four hundred and forty, four hundred and fifty, four hundred and fifty five, four hundred and sixty, four hundred and seventy...

Either I just saw somebody pretending they couldn't walk taking money from good church-going people or I'm witnessing a miracle.

Which is it?


As a pastor, it is my duty to try to help you and your daughter.

Oh, he's not my dad.

What is your relationship to this child?

Uncle. Neighbor.

A neighbor who tries to sell cars.

I'm more like a family friend.

No, just neighbor.

Ana would like to apologize.

Yes, I'm sure she would.

I'm sorry.

The church teaches forgiveness.

And penance.

Fraud is a serious matter.

Obviously, she's gonna...

She's gonna give back the money.

And perhaps a small atonement could be made, if, say, she did a little work at the church.

Well, we'd be happy to come back another time, but right now I'm kind of in a crisis.

Or we could call the police.

Thank you.


It's good being on the road.

Isn't it?

Why don't we stay here and never go back to San Juan?

You should bring your sons here.

It'd be really nice.

They have a busy life.

They have family, they have kids.

What are their names?

Nicolás and Andrés.

Why don't you see them?

You can just get a flight to Miami or get them to get a flight.


Authorities in San Juan suspected foul play after finding the body of a man washed up on Luquillo Beach.

Police believe this is yet another homicide linked to increasing gambling debts as people search for ways out of this crisis.

And now it's time to check our local weather...

...who wishes to share her life experiences and how her faith helped her accept God's choices for her.

All right, Ana.

I want you to tell the story exactly as we discussed about how the church and prayer has helped you live with your disability, okay?

Thank you, Pastor Helen.

My name is Zuleika, and this is my story.

When I was five, my father became a drunk and pushed me down some stairs.

I broke my legs.

They told me I would never walk again.

A few days ago, I met a kind man.

That's him right there.

He'd lost everything through his misguided behavior.

He was a heavy gambler, and he took tablets for his vagina.

But he told me the story of Saint Tino.

One day, Tino was leading his cow beside a small lagoon and the cow slipped on a rock and fell in, pulling Tino with him.

Tino thought he would drown.

So he put his hands together and said a prayer.

Tino stood up and was amazed to see that he could walk again.

A few days ago, I went there myself and I gently dipped my legs in, and I said a prayer.

Oh, my God.

What an amazing story.


Open your hearts, everybody.

Tell your friends and family about what you have seen and heard today.

Bring them to our church to hear this miracle for themselves.

If we get ten percent for every atonement, we can pay Diego on time, and I bet I can get her to raise our cut.

We're just trying to make it through the crisis, Rafa.

Come on, let's go. Bedtime.

Good night.


My name is Zuleika, and this is my story.

When I was five, my father became a drunk and, in one of his drunken rages, he pushed me down the stairs.

I broke my backbone.

They told me I would never walk again.

Until a few days ago, when I heard the story of Saint Tino, a crippled farmer who thought God had forsaken him because he was poor and he couldn't walk well.

One day, Tino was walking his favorite cow beside a small lagoon when the cow slipped on a rock and fell in, pulling Tino with him into the dark depths.

Tino thought he would drown because the cow was sinking, so he tried to swim, but he didn't have enough air.

So then he put his hands together, he said a prayer.

And suddenly, the waters of the well rose up.


And placed him gently on the grass, as if God's hands are made out of water.

Camila! Wait, let me explain.

After hearing that story, I was inspired.

My friend took me there.

Using a child to make money?

No. Listen.

Embezzling? From a church?

I'm not embezzling from them.

It's more complicated than that!

I used to have feelings for you, Rafael.

I said a prayer and...

Now I understand why your business went bad.

Because you're a crook.

Because you are a crook!

Listen. Hey! Hey!






We're done here.

That's it. We're done.

Ana. Leave that.

Hey. Hey. Leave that.

Let's go. We're out of here.

You wanna call the police? Go ahead. Call the police.

'Cause what you're doing here is not only fraud, you're taking advantage of people who don't have anything which is exactly what's wrong with this island right now.

People like you coming in and taking advantage.

And where are you from?

I'm from San Juan.

But you're not Puerto Rican. I'm from Miami.

Oh, yeah? Miami-Cuban? Yes!

So you probably came here to sell cars because of the Puerto Rican tax breaks?

I came here for many reasons. Ana.

But you came here with the hope of making more money and paying less taxes.

So isn't that taking advantage?

Look, Rafa.

Helen's given me a great job.

You never know how much money there is inside this.

Ana has decided she wants to stay with the church for our summer camp.

Oh, Ana's decided?

Yes, she has.

Ana? Ana?

Got Diego's cash, Rafa?

I got it in the car.

How you doing?

Wrong move, Rafa.

Now you're really pissing me off, Rafa.

...that you are receiving campaign donations from a well-known church organization.

Here we go again with the below-the-belt corruption accusations.

Hardly surprising that people would be suspicious if you are not prepared to reveal the sources of your campaign donations.

Just a minute.

Hi. I'm here to pick up Ana.

Oh, we have no record of anyone coming to collect her.

And, in any case, she's giving a big testimony this week, so...

Giving a testimony?

Yeah. I'd like to speak with her.

I'm sorry, sir, we just don't allow unaccompanied adults on the grounds.


You okay?

Worried about you.

You mustn't worry.

God takes care of us all, especially the goodly.

You see? Ana is safe and well.

I will say a prayer for you, that you are able to see someday the wrong roads you have taken in life.

Why don't you go and give your friend a hug and then we go back to your game? Okay, Ana?

Excuse me.

Ana wanted you to have this.

Thank you.

Sorry, we're not here at the moment.

Please leave a message.

Nicolás, this papi.

Listen, uh...

I wanna talk to you and your brother.

I love you, guys, and I miss you.

Please call.

All right. Let's go.

Remember, the more you give, the more you shall receive.

So please do whatever you can to help us, help the people of this island.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, it's time for the Church of the Well of God Summer Spectacular.

Put your hands together for your host, our very own prophet, an angel sent from God, the amazing, the awe-inspiring...

And now...

Pastor Helen.

When I was five, my father broke my spine with a metal bar.

I was made to sleep outside our yard in a pen with the roosters.

Sometimes, they would peck at me.


You know what has to happen next.

I don't know what to say.

I don't have your money.

What the hell, Rafa?

Do what you gotta do.

Drop me in the ocean somewhere.


The waters of the lagoon rose up.

Tino was at the top floating, saved by the clear blue waters of the pool.

Finally, he was gently placed down on the grass.

It was as if God had placed his soul in a giant car wash.

After hearing this story, I wheeled myself up to the lagoon.

I dipped my legs in and I said a prayer and well...

♪ Hallelujah, Hallelujah ♪






Smile. God bless you all.

Thank you. Let's go, darling.

What time are we playing later? I don't know.


I need my cut.

Well, that money belongs to the church.

It's been donated.

We're giving it to the Vega Campaign...

What? make Puerto Rico great again.

The church got that money because of me, because they believed my story!

No, dearie, they liked your story because it gave them hope, and that made them feel good.

And that's your reward, giving these people back some hope.

We had a deal.

And that deal is done.

Sir, is this your vehicle?


It's in a handicap spot. Shit.

Sorry, I'll move it. What's that?




It belonged to a friend of mine.

I gave her a ride, left it in the car.

Can you open the trunk, please?

Hands behind your back, sir. Please.

Wait! Stop!

Stop it!

You can't do that.

Are you two together?

No. Yes.

He's taking care of me.

My mother's in prison.

I have a moonshiner hawking outside the San Juan Arena.

And I'm also going to need someone from Social Services to deal with the matter.

No. - Backup is on the way.

Copy that.

...weekend, it's your "Name Your Price" extravaganza.

Got any cash?

Where's your mommy, then? She's not here, is she?

You're all on your own.

What the hell is this?

She has nothing.

She has just dirty laundry.

They'll probably take her out with the dirty laundry.

Don't worry. We'll be around.

Don't speak. Just listen.

I've got a plan.

I'm not seeing Rafa.

Yeah. About that, he's in jail.

Is this a joke?

Look, you want your money back, right?

The man's a loser.

Even losers win sometimes.

You just gotta trust me, Diego, and you'll get your money back and some.

We just gotta show some hustle.

Let's go, Joe.

I got blown out of the blowhole!

I know all our inner circle members are grateful to Congressman Vega for helping us exceed our fundraising target.

Señor Vega, we wanna show you our gratitude and our love.

We know God is smiling upon you for the upcoming election.

Today, you are blessed.

Our crisis will soon be over.

Amen. Amen.

Are there any other local businesspeople who wish to have a blessing today?


Ah, welcome.

Can you... Can you help them up?

And you are?

My name is Rafael Rodriguez.

And what is it you do, Rafael?

I run a business in Barrio Obrero.

And God willing, that business is prospering.

We all do what we have to do in order to survive.

Let me say a few words for you then.

Lord... Let me say a few words for you.

There is a man in the front row seat in the aisle and he's got a suit on.

He's from the Department of the Treasury and he wants to have a serious talk with you regarding your illegal donations to the Vega campaign.

As you said, fraud is a serious business.

You can't prove anything.

Well, that money belongs to the church.

It's been donated.

We're giving it to the Vega campaign to make Puerto Rico great again.

I can't hear anything at all.

What is that little girl showing Helen?

Because it gave them hope and that made them feel good.

And that's your reward, giving these people back some hope.

Twenty-six thousand, twenty-seven thousand, twenty-eight... Twenty-eight.

...twenty-nine. Twenty-nine.

...thirty. Thirty thousand.


Come on, baby. I'm so done.

Come on. So many times.

Yeah, there you go, tough guy.


Looks like your mom's cleaning house.


You're not done with this car yet?

What's the matter with you? Come on, let's go.

Let's go, slowpoke.

Get a move on.

Show me some hustle.

I'll show you some hustle!

This enough hustle?

Come on! I'll hustle you up.

I'll give you something to hustle!

You know what you need?

You need a car.

A cool car, a second-hand car from Rafa's Quality Cars.

Name it, we have it!

We got white cars, one owner.

We got blue cars filled with half a tank of gas, four-nine-nine-five.

We got SUVs, like new, nine-nine-three-nine.

So many cars, we don't know what to do with them.

They're cheap, they're old, they're classic.

I can wash it for you, but I can't drive it.

I'm only eleven!

Rafa's Quality Cars.

He doesn't just have the coolest cars in Puerto Rico, but he is the nicest guy, and you can trust him.

That's my promise to you.

And cut.
