Babel (2006) Script

It's almost new.

Three hundred cartridges.

The guy who gave it to me said... you can hit as far as three kilometres.

How much are you asking for all of this?

One thousand dirhams.

One thousand dirhams?

I'll give you five hundred.

And a goat.

With this rifle, your sons will kill plenty of jackals.

Here, let one of your boys try.

Let Yussef shoot.

Dad, I want to shoot first.

This is the safety. Push it in when you're ready.

If he doesn't hit the jackals, at least he'll scare the shit out of them.

Your turn Yussef.

He shoots better than you.

Good luck, have a good day.

God bless you.

Kill at least three jackals.

Make sure no one sees you with the rifle... if you see someone coming, hide it.


What are you doing?

I told you, don't spy on her.

What do you care?

Move it.


Five to two.

There's a jackal.

Where?

Over there.

What are you doing, you idiot?

Zohra doesn't mind.

She doesn't, but I do.

This is between her and me.

You're both pigs. Next time I'm going to tell Dad.

Stay out of this.

If you want me to stay out of it, don't do it.


What are you doing?

Hassan said this bullet could reach three kilometres.

That rock didn't move.

You don't know how to shoot. Give me the rifle.

See.

Yeah, but that's not three kilometres.

I bet the bullet can't hit that far.

These bullets are lame.

You're not aiming right.

What'll you give me if I hit that car?

I'll shoot.

You see? Nothing.

Let me shoot.

Shoot at it.

See... nothing.

You're right, they're useless.


Where are these kids?

Where are you?

I'm coming to get you...

Base!

You win.

Yes? Amelia?

Yes, sir.

Hi. How's everything?

Everything is okay, sir.

Mrs Rachel told me. I am very sorry, sir.

How's Mrs Susan?

She's better now. They're going to have to operate, but...

Look, Rachel's flying in tonight.

She's gonna find someone to take care of the kids so you can go.

Thank you, sir. Thank you. I really appreciate it.

So, look after them, okay? Don't tell them anything.

No, no, no. Don't worry, sir. Don't worry. Okay.

- Put Mike on, please. Yes, sir.

Mike? Your dad is calling.

Hi, Daddy. Hi, sweetie. How are you?

Good. Dad, guess what? Today they brought hermit crabs to class.

Oh, really?

I held one in my hands. It bit me. It really didn't bleed, but...

Dad? Are you okay?

I'm okay. Everything's fine.

Mariana wanted to take one home. But the teacher didn't let her. She was...

I don't want to go to sleep. I don't want to go to sleep.

Mike. Mike.

Did you brush your teeth?

Sleep with angels, my darling.

Sleep well, sweetie.

Amelia?

Could you leave the light on?

You are already sharing a room... didn't we agree to sleep with the lights off?

But I'm scared.

There's nothing to be scared of.

But I'm scared that what happened to Sam is going to happen to me.

No, that won't happen to you.

Sam died while he was sleeping.

No, baby, no, no.

That only happens to some babies when they're really, really little.

Your brother is already high in heaven, baby.

I'll sit here with you. But you can't talk any more, okay?

Go to sleep.


But today is my son's wedding, sir.

Cancel your son's wedding. I'll pay for another one, I'll pay for a better one. I need you to do this, Amelia.

Everything is ready, sir.

Can't anyone come to take care of the kids? It's just one day, sir.

How do you expect me to find someone from here?

Susan's still recovering, and Rachel can't make it to take care of the kids.

Can't do it. Hold on.

We're really counting on you, Amelia. I'm sorry, but you have to do this.

But... Goodbye.

How can I be in two places at once?

I'm just asking you to take them for today.

I can't, the mister is still home.

And they aren't going out?

No, I don't think so.

Okay, I'll talk to you later.

I can't Amelia.

Please, it's my son's wedding.

Just for the day, Lucia. I'll be back for them tonight.

And what do I say to Mrs Catherine?

I don't know. Tell her they're your nephews.

Right, because they look so much like me... with my American looking face!

Are we going to see your house?

Yes. You are going to see my house.

Is it far?

No, no.

What's up?

Hi Auntie.

Great to see you, Santiago.

Mike. Debbie.

Hello!

Hello, hello.

They're really shy.

What? These kids are coming with us?

I couldn't find anyone to watch them.

Their parents won't return tonight.

Why bring them? They'll drive you crazy.

Don't worry, they're very good kids.

Don't you want to leave them with somebody?

I know a girl who can take care of them.

Are you crazy? I have to take them with me.

I can't leave them with just anybody.

Are you sure, Auntie?

You want to order?

Yeah, I'll have the chicken couscous and a Coke.

What do you have that doesn't have fat in it?

Everything is delicious.

I'll have the fried eggplant and a Diet Coke.

Sorry, we don't have Diet Coke.

Then a regular Coke. Two Cokes.

Richard, why did we come here?

What do you mean, why?

Really. Why are we here?

To be alone.

"Alone. "

Throw out the ice. The Coke's hot.

Yeah, but you don't know what kind of water is in there.

Jesus Christ. Why can't you just relax? Why are you so stressed?

You are the reason I'm stressed. You're the reason why I can't relax.

You could if you tried.

You don't think I tried?

You're never gonna forgive me, are you?

You know what I'm talking about.

Hey. I'm not gonna argue.

Okay.

You just let me know when you're ready to argue.

If you're not gonna run away again.


Honey? What happened? I'm okay.

Honey, what happened? What happened?

You're bleeding, you're bleeding.

Oh, my God! She's been shot!

Jesus. What happened?

You're bleeding. Oh, my God!

Stop the bus!

What happened? Stop the bus!


The ball was out.

That was out.

No, it was good.

That was out.

I'm deaf, not blind.

You're out.

You shouldn't have lost your temper. We lost the game.

It wasn't my fault, it was the ref.

If you hadn't been thrown out, we would've won the game.

Why are you in a bad mood?

She's always in a bad mood because nobody's fucked her yet.

I'm gonna fuck your dad to get rid of my mood.

I'll see you at the J-Pop.

What do you want to eat?

I said I'd meet my friends from the team at J-Pop.

Didn't you tell me we would have lunch together?

Dad, I told you I was going to eat with them.

You never pay attention to me.

My mother always paid attention to me.

Why do you want to fight?

I miss your mother too.

I'm doing the best I can.

Don't forget the dentist at three.

Take care.


Do you have a table?

Why all the way in the corner?

Isn't the view nice?

Do you like him?


Hello.

Can I play with you?

Or you can have a drink with us?

Tell him to speak slowly.

Can you say that a little slower?

You assholes, how embarrassing.


What's the matter?

They look at us like we're monsters.

Oh, come off it.

What are you doing?

Now they're going to meet the real hairy monster.


Don't forget your appointment with the dentist. Papa.

I have to go.

I'll see you at your place, then.


What are you doing here?

Something we ate gave us a stomach ache.

The goats will die if they don't eat.

Wash your face and take them out again.

My stomach hurts.

There are other chores to do then.

Move it. Let's go.


God bless. Bye, bye.

Thank you, I'll see you tomorrow.

Tell your mother to prepare dinner.

Did you kill any jackals?

We shot at them, but didn't hit any.

You have to kill them. If not, they're going to eat all the goats.

Why did you come home late?

They closed the road, we took the long way.

Apparently some terrorists killed an American tourist.

An American?

Yes, the terrorists attacked a tour bus on the road.

No, there aren't any terrorists here.

You never know.

How do you know the American died?

That's what they were saying. The police are looking for the culprits.


You see how easy it is to get into paradise?

Is this Mexico?

Yes, this is Mexico.

My mom told me that Mexico is really dangerous.

Yeah... it's full of Mexicans.

Don't talk like that.

It's not true.

I mean, yeah, it's full of Mexicans, but...


How wonderful, you made it.

You decided to bring them?

Hey, what's up?

Oh, son, look how handsome.

You look like Julio Preciado.

Forget Julio Preciado, he looks like Luis Miguel.

Debbie. Mike.

These are the kids I take care of.

Say hi to Luis.

Lucio, come here.

This is Mike and Debbie.

He's called Lucio. He's gonna take care of you, okay?

Take them to play.

Mom, I don't know how you did it, but it zipped up perfectly.

And it's been 15 years since I wore this dress.

You haven't changed a bit, Ma.

Working dear, hard work... that's what keeps you young.

What are you guys laughing about?

Nothing Ma, nothing.

I'll give a buck to the first who catches a chicken.

Careful with the 'huevos. '

Very good, Debbie got one.

Debbie's the winner.

Okay, now we need another five.

So we have five chickens here.

Okay, now who's going to help me?

You? Okay, come.

Hold it tight, like this.

Grab it right.

Everyone back up... give me some room.

Someone, help!

Is anybody a doctor? Please, a doctor!

Where's the nearest hospital? It's far away. About four hours.

Is there anything closer? There's a clinic.

But on the south. In the bus it will take us an hour and a half.

Away from Ouarzazate? Yes. It's the closest thing we've got.

Get down!

Put that there. Okay.

Stop! Stop!

We need your help. My wife's been injured.

I need your help. Help. Hospital.

Help, come here. Tell him we need his help!

No, wait! Wait! Wait! Stop him! Stop him!

Ouarzazate isn't this way. They're going to start shooting at us.

Turn the bus around, Anwar! It hurts.

Turn back. Turn the bus around! It really hurts.

We got to get somewhere closer. Is there anywhere else we can take her?

We can take her to my town.

It's near here, and there is a doctor. We can call Erfoud for an ambulance.

Okay. Okay.


Watch her shoulder! Watch her shoulder!

Okay. Okay.

Turn this way. No, no.

Through the next door. Come on.

We got to call an ambulance. I need to call my embassy.

Okay. If you have the number of your embassy, I can go call.

Where are you going?

I'll make the call. Okay, I got to go make a call.

Please don't leave me here alone. You're going to be all right.

Can she help? Yeah, yeah.

Where are you going? Please don't leave me here alone.

Can she help? Yes.

Listen, listen. It's gonna be all right. I'm just gonna go make a call.

Wait, wait, wait, wait. Tell her she has to keep pressure right here.

She cannot let go. Does she understand?

Yes.

I'm just gonna make sure help's on the way. I'm coming right back.

Please don't leave me. Does she understand?

I'll be right back. Richard, no, don't leave me here.

I'll be right back. Richard, don't. Richard!

I'll be back, sweetheart. Just gonna make the call.

How's your wife? It's bad. I can't stop the bleeding.

Get her out of there and let's go. Where? Where do I take her?

In Egypt in a town like this they slit 30 German tourists' throats.

They might do the same to us. No, sir, not here.

What do you know? We've got to get out of here as soon as possible.

It's unbearably hot.

We have to get back for our children. Look, you can't leave us here.

What is the point in our staying? I n case we need the bus!

He can drop us off and come back for you.

No. I'll stay with you if you need me.

Please just wait. Let me figure this out.

We're not gonna risk our lives, so hurry.

I need your phone. I will pay.


Rachel? Rachel? It's Richard. Listen.

Hey, where are you?

We're still... Listen, listen. There's been an accident.

Your sister's been shot. She's been shot.

I don't know. I don't know.

She's hit in the neck. Oh, my God!

Listen, listen, I need you to call the embassy and tell them what happened. And call Mark, okay? Call Mark.

Where are you?

Where are we?

Tazarine. Three hours southwest of Erfoud.

Tazarine. T-A-Z-A-R-I-N-E.

Three hours southwest of Erfoud.

It's in the desert. It's a village.

- How are we supposed to find you? Listen, listen, listen!

This is urgent, okay? Okay.

Call the embassy. They will help us. And call James!

This is the doctor.


Easy.

Easy, easy. Easy! Easy!

I can't, I can't.

Tell him, easy.

The bullet didn't touch her spine.

If she stays like this, she will bleed to death.

What did he say?

He says she will be fine.

Don't you fucking lie to me. You tell me what he said.

Tell me what he said!

Hospital. Hospital.

I know, hospital! What can you do?

Is there anything we can do?

I have to stitch up the wound to stop the bleeding.

He says he need to sew up the wounds.

What did he say?

He said you need some stitches, honey.

Stitches? What do you mean, stitches?

What kind of doctor is he? He's a veterinarian. But he is good.

And tell him her clavicle is broken.

He says she has a broken bone and he has to put a splint on it.

If he doesn't sew up her wound, she might bleed to death.

Wait. Wait, wait. Richard.

No, no, no, Richard.

We have to hold her down.

Richard. Richard. No, no, no, no. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait.

Richard, don't let him. Honey, we have to do this.

It's still bleeding. We got to stop the bleeding. You gotta do this.

We have to do this. No, no, don't let him.

Listen to me. No, no, no, please.

No, no, no, no. Richard, don't.

No! You got to be still.

Richard, don't let him! No. You got to be still.

Be strong, be strong.


Here are the sterilized drill bits.

You have cavities in two molars.


What are you doing?

What's wrong with you?

Get out.

Get out right now.


Yes, I'll let him know.

That's Mr Wataya's daughter.

Thank you.

Are you Yasujiro Wataya's daughter?

She's deaf-mute...

Face her when you speak so she can read your lips.

Are you Yasujiro Wataya's daughter?

We are Yoshjo Hamano and Kenji Mamiya of the Metropolitan Police.

We would like to see your father.

No, it's nothing bad. We just want to talk to him.

Do you know where he is?

Please tell him to call.

Don't be scared. We just want to talk to him.

Thank you.

Chieko, I waited for you. I have a meeting so I'll be back late.

I left you a bento box. Papa.

I'm on my way to your place.

Where are you?

Hurry up!

Moroccan officials are investigating suspects... in the shooting of an American tourist.

Officials said the shooting took place...

Are you ready?

Yeah, I'm just going to get my bag.

The cops came again?

Yeah. They hadn't come in nine months. But these were different cops.

Did they come to ask about your mother's death?

No, but they're probably going to ask my dad about the same things.

They're just not convinced, are they?

Believe it or not, I liked one of the cops.

Idiot.

Did you put on some panties?


Are you sure it was here?

An American stopped me.

I was scared. He was covered in blood.

Where was the bus stopped?

Over there.

Captain Alarid... Captain Alarid.

I found cartridges.

We found four. Here's one.

Did you search all over?

Yes, the whole mountain.

They're from around here.

Find out who has a. 270 calibre rifle.


Hassan Ibrahim?

Yes. Drop your weapon.

I don't have a weapon.

Drop it now.

I told you to drop your weapon.

This is just my knife.

Get on the ground.

What did we do?

Get down on the ground... face down.

Don't look at me.

What did we do?

Take these skins to Najib, see if he wants to buy them.

Why did you shoot at the bus?

I didn't shoot at anyone.

Then who?

It wasn't me.

That was your rifle.

I sold it yesterday.

Who did you sell it to?


Do you know where Abdullah Adboum lives?

Yes.

You have to go over those mountains.

Who lives in this area?

We live here with our mother. Abdullah lives on the other side.

If you're lying, I'm going to come back and cut your balls off.

You can come back anytime you like.

Don't walk between the graves.


Papa... Papa...

What happened?

The police... they're looking for you.

Me? Why?

No, not for you... they're looking for us.

Looking for you? Why?

Because of the tourist.

What tourist?

The American... Yussef killed her.

Liar, we both did.

What are you saying?

Yussef started shooting at the cars... because Hassan said that the bullet could go far.

Liar, you started shooting at the cars.

But you killed her.

What are you saying?

Yussef killed the American and he spies on Zohra naked... and Zohra lets him watch her.

That's garbage.

It's not garbage. She's a street girl and he spies on her.

Time to drink!


This song is dedicated from Luis to Patricia... the most beautiful bride in the world.


I think Aunt Amelia has to dance.


Amelia, can I have this dance?

I don't think your wife would like that.

Ohh, she passed away 10 years ago. Come on Amelia.


Let's go dance... You have something white on your face.

Don't get excited, it's only cake.

Today, near Tazarine, there was an incident.

An American was shot.

Authorities say it could have been a robbery.

But, the American government was quick to suggest a terrorist link.

Minister Hassan Hazal has said... that terrorist cells have been eradicated in our country... and one act of vulgar banditry... followed by superficial evaluations the U.S. places on it... cannot ruin our image or the economy.

I want to call the kids.

Richard, I want to talk to the kids.

We can't move you right now.

We'll call them later. I want to talk to the kids.

I got to talk to them.

I got to talk to the kids.


You have to turn on the air-conditioning, my husband is ill.

No air-conditioning, no gasoline near. I'm sorry.

Please, it's too hot. We can get dehydrated.

What did he say?

He says we can't turn on the air-conditioning because it uses the gas.

Oh, fuck that. Come on.

Fuck you.

Tom, where are you going?

Get back. Wait there. Get back.

Look, we're leaving. You're not leaving us.

There's old people here. The heat is really getting...

Wait for the ambulance, and then you can leave.

There's a man in the bus who almost fainted, and there's a woman who needs to get back in time to take her medication.

We can't leave him here. Well, let him come, then.

His wife's in no condition to travel.

There's people in no condition to be kept waiting.

Can't you see that?

Please wait. The ambulance is gonna be here any minute, right?

It's gonna be here any minute.

So I'm asking you all to please wait.

Thirty minutes. We're giving you thirty minutes.


Who are they?

My cousins.

Is he deaf-mute like us?

No, but he understands some.

What is your name?

Chieko.

My name's Haruki.

It's whisky.

Do the cops come around here?

Sometimes.


You smell good.


Welcome home... may I help you?

Are you sure you want him to come now?

Is this Detective Mamiya?

The deaf-mute girl you met this afternoon asked me to call.

Yes, her.

She says she needs to talk to you, alone... about her father.

Why did you do this?

Answer me, damn it!

We were testing the rifle.

Are you idiots?

You killed a woman.

And you...

You got naked so your brother could watch?

Zohra got naked lots of times so Yussef could watch her.

Is it true or not?

Why did you do this to us?

Where's the rifle?

I told you, a hunter gave it to me.

What hunter?

A Japanese hunter... gave it to me.

I've got a picture. She can get it.

Go get it.


He's holding the rifle he gave me.


We're going to Najib's house.

If the cops come, tell them we went south.

This Abdullah doesn't live in the area you told us.

Are you playing with us?

He lives in the area he told you.

He lives there?

You're going to take us.


They're over there.

The police, the police.

Run... run.


Get down.


Mom, stay here tonight.

I can't, I have to get these kids home. It's almost dawn.

But this fucking guy is really drunk.

Drunk my ass. I'm fine. I'll be right back.

Stay a little while, the party's just starting.

I would like to, but these kids have soccer practise tomorrow.

See you soon, Son.

Congratulations, my darling.

Take care of my grandchild. I'm dying to be a grandmother.

Seriously, you're not drunk man?

Drunk my ass. I'm fine. I'll be back.

Remember, they got you once already and you got in a lot of trouble.

Bye, Ma...

If things don't work here, I'll meet you with the 'gringos. '


Hey, be careful.

I'll cross the border through Tecate... that will get us to San Diego super fast.

Papers?

Where you coming from? From Mexico.

From a wedding.

Where you from?

From Valle de Guadalupe.

Valle de Guadalupe.

Where you headed today?

To San Diego. We're going... I'm taking them.

Who are they? Her nephews.

Her nephews. They don't look like you, ma'am.

No, no, no, no. I'm in charge of them.

Do you have their passports? Yes.

Is there a problem?

Should there be one?

Wait right here just a minute.

Don't say anything. Let me do the talking.

But you're provoking him.

I was just kidding.

Can you open your trunk, sir?

What? Open your trunk.

Yes, yes, yes.


Close it up.

Get back in the vehicle.

Glove compartment, ma'am.

Purse?


All right.

What now? Motherfucker...

Ma'am?

You said you were in charge of them? Yes.

We need the parents' letters of permission.

Parents' letters?

What's that?

Hey there, sweetie.

Tell me, is this lady here your auntie?

No, she's not my auntie.

She's in charge.

Are you drunk, sir? Me?

Are you intoxicated? No.

Sir, I'm gonna ask you to step out the vehicle.

Why? I need you to step out the vehicle.

I need you to step out the vehicle now!

Sir, can I explain? No, you cannot explain!

I'm telling you that you will step out the vehicle!

Don't make me ask you again!

Wait, sir. Get back into the vehicle.

What you're gonna do now is you're gonna follow me to the secondary inspection area.

Can I explain? No, you cannot explain.

Sir, you will shut your mouth and you will follow me...

I heard you... stop shouting.

You will park your vehicle and you will get out.

Don't shout at me.

You will shut your mouth and you will do as you're told. Follow me!

Stop shouting at me.

Step out of the vehicle as told.

Easy Santiago, please.

Upon passing this van, you'll turn to the right and park your vehicle.

I got a port runner.

What are you doing?

I got a port runner! Tecate border! Officer Brigg, Tecate border!

What are you doing, Santiago? What are you doing!

See, I told you! You shouldn't have brought them.

Santiago, stop acting like a madman and stop the car.

Please, Santiago, stop!

Shut those kids up! Shut them up!


Sweetie, everything is okay.

Don't cry.

Please stop, Santiago.

Motherfuckers, fucking gringo assholes, here they come.


Get out. Get out.

Are you crazy? Where?

Get out. If they catch us, we're all screwed...

I'll lose them, then come back for you.

Get out, for Christ sake!

Santiago, calm down.

Aunt Amelia, get out... for the love of God!

Get out, kids.

Come on, come on, get out!

Santiago is going to come back soon and... the sun is going to rise.

I want to go home now.

Be careful, baby.


Thank you.

Is that your daughter?

Yes. The third of five.

Do you have kids? Yeah.


Just two? Yeah.

You should have more.

What about you? How many wives you have?

I can only afford one.

Come on! Find another ambulance! Do something!

Why can't you call another ambulance?

They just told me the ambulance isn't coming.

And you know we don't have another ambulance.

There isn't another ambulance.

What do you mean, there's no other ambulance? What do you mean?

Fucking move! Fucking find me an ambulance! Find me an ambulance!

He wants to know how he will get his wife out of here.

Tell him they said his embassy will deal with it.

Your embassy will deal with it. What can my embassy do?

This is your fucked-up country! It's your responsibility! You do something!

The Americans stopped the ambulance.

They want to send a helicopter, but there are problems.

He says it's your embassy who stopped the ambulance and they will send a helicopter.

Now I'm supposed to wait for a helicopter? Fucking do something!

Fuck you! Fuck you!

How's your wife? We can't stay here any longer.

Stay away from me. It's gonna get dark soon.

People are not feeling well. It's dangerous.

Don't you push me!

Fuck that! We're leaving!

Shut up! Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!

Take it easy!

Shut up! Shut up! Calm down. Come here.

Get off me! Calm down!

If you leave, I'll kill you. I'll kill you.

Come with us. Come with us.

Are you all right?

No, we need help now. We need help now. Do you understand?

I'm doing everything I can do. I've got the State Department on the other line right now.

They're doing everything they can do.

Due to some political problems that are being resolved...

I don't give a shit about political problems. I need help now.

Everybody is doing everything they can. Okay? I don't know what else I can do.

It's all over the news.

Everybody is paying attention and doing everything that they can.

Richard...

Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop!


Good evening.

The doorman called to say you wanted to talk to me.

I don't understand.

Could you speak slowly?

I'm sorry.

What was it you wanted to tell me?

Do you have tea?


"My father had nothing to do with my mother's death. "

What's this?


When your mother jumped off the balcony, your father was asleep?


You saw her jump?

You've already told the other officers?

What are you talking about?


Does your father still hunt?

There was an incident involving a rifle in your father's name.

That's why we want to talk to him. Understand?


Your father isn't going to jail. We just need to talk to him.

I have to go.

I really have to go.


What are you doing?

Please stop.

No, this is wrong. You're just a girl.

Enough, stop it!


Give me that rifle.

They're going to kill us.


I killed the American. I was the only one who shot at you.

They did nothing... nothing.

Kill me, but save my brother, he did nothing... nothing.

Save my brother... he did nothing.


Help!


What's happening?

Why are we hiding if we didn't even do anything wrong?

Because they think we did something wrong, baby.

That's not true. You're bad.

No, sweetie. No, I'm not.

I just did something stupid.


Sweetie, I have to go look for help.

Stay here and don't move, please. I'm not staying here alone.

Honey, you have to take care of Debbie, baby.

I'm going with you.

I won't be long. I promise. Stay here.

Don't move. Okay?

I won't be long, baby.


Drink.


I have to go and get two kids I left behind in the desert. Please?

They're Americans.

When did you cross? I didn't cross. I live here.

Please, please, help me find those kids.

Stand here. Don't move.

Attention, Dispatch. I think I got the suspect.

Ma'am, you're under arrest. You want to turn around and put your hands behind your head, please.

I live with those kids, I swear!

Turn around. Please, sir, those kids will die!

Thank you.

Then we'll get you some water.

They're alone.

They are children, they will die.

You're gonna take me to them, okay?


Ma'am, are you with them?


Richard?

What?

If I die, you take care of the kids.

Especially Mike. He really needs you.

You're not gonna die. You can't die. You just can't.

Don't you ever leave them again.

I will never leave them.

I peed my pants. What?

I couldn't hold it in and I peed.

I've got to pee again.

Do you have a pan we could use? A pan?

Could you give us a few moments alone?

Yeah, of course.

There.

Now sit.

I can't.

Yep. Yeah, I can.


Forgive me, my love.

When Sammy died,

I didn't...

I ran.

I was scared. I was scared, too.

It wasn't my fault. It wasn't your fault.

He wasn't breathing.

I couldn't...

I love you so much.

I'm forgetting his face.

Hello? Richard Jones?

I'm very sorry about what happened to your wife, but you can be sure that the culprits will be punished.

What the fuck is taking so long?

Well, the Moroccan government wouldn't let us use their airspace.

They refused to acknowledge that this was an act of terrorism.

What about the ambulance?

Taking your safety into consideration, Mr Jones, we didn't believe it would be appropriate to send a Moroccan ambulance.

Stay put. We settled the matter. A helicopter should arrive soon.

- How long? Soon.

No! How long?

There's no need to apologise.


It's a miracle we found those kids, ma'am.

I don't know how you could have left them alone like that out in the desert.

How are they, sir? That's none of your business.

You know how many kids die every year trying to cross this border?

I raised these kids since they were born.

I take care of them day and night.

I feed them breakfast and lunch and dinner.

I play with them.

Mike and Debbie are like my own children.

But they are not your children, ma'am.

Plus, you've been working in this country illegally.

What about my nephew, Santiago?

I don't have any information on him.

We located the father in Morocco.

He was very angry, but decided not to press charges.

Thank you.

Nevertheless the government of the United States has deemed that you are seriously breaking the law, and is determined to immediately and definitively deport you.

Sir, I've been here for 16 years.

I have my things here. I rent a house.

I made a life here, sir.

You should have thought about that beforehand.

I want to talk to a lawyer.

If you attempt to take this to trial, I can assure you, you'll only be prolonging the inevitable.

I recommend you accept voluntary deportation.


The sources of the attack are not yet known.

But it is clear that Moroccan and US government officials are working quickly to secure the area for all citizens.

Locals reported Susan Jones, an American mother of two...

Mr Jones, I'm Ken Clifford, the US ambassador.

We will find these people. Whoever they are, we will find them.

Thank you very much. That's all I have to say now.


Mr Jones?

I'm going to have to operate immediately.

Is she gonna be all right?

It's probable. We're gonna try to save her arm.

She's been bleeding internally and there's been some clotting, so there's a high risk of gangrene.

But is she gonna be all right?

Excuse me, sir.

- Yes? Amelia?

Yes, sir.

Hi, how's everything?

Everything is okay, sir.

Mrs Rachel told me. I am very sorry, sir.

How's Mrs Susan?

She's better now. They're going to have to operate, but...

Look, Rachel's flying in tonight.

She's gonna find someone to take care of the kids so you can go.

Thank you, sir. Thank you. I really appreciate it.

So, look after them, okay? Don't tell them anything.

No, no, no. Don't worry, sir. Don't worry.

Okay.

Put Mike on, please.

Mike? Your dad is calling.

- Hi, Daddy. Hi, sweetie. How are you?

Good. Dad, guess what? Today they brought hermit crabs to class.

Oh, really?

I held one in my hands. It bit me. It really didn't bleed, but...

Dad? Are you okay?

I'm okay. Everything's fine.

Mariana wanted to take one home. But the teacher didn't let her. She was...

I felt sad for her 'cause she went to the principal's office.

You know what she did? She started crying.

She was really crying. And the teacher had to send her to the principal's office 'cause she was really crying.


Mr Wataya, this officer has been looking for you.

Good evening, I'm Lieutenant Mamiya.

Good evening, how can I help you?

Sir, there was an incident and...

I'm sorry to bother you, but... do you own a. 270 calibre Winchester M70 rifle?

Registration number...

UK-9023.

I don't remember the number, but I did have a rifle like that.

Is it true that you gave that rifle to a Mr Hassan Ibrahim... who lives in Morocco?

Hassan Ibrahim?

He says he was your guide in a hunt.

Hassan? Yes, I remember him well.

He was a good guide and a very good man, I gave him the rifle in thanks.

Did anything happen?

That rifle was used in an attempted murder... and the Moroccan police want to confirm it's not off the black market.

No, I gave it to him.

Is Hassan ok?

I don't know about that.

Am I legally involved?

Not for the moment, but can you come down to the station tomorrow?

I have a few questions.

Can I leave now?

Good night.

Excuse me.

I heard from your daughter... about your wife on the balcony.

I'm very sorry.

What balcony?

About how your wife killed herself by jumping off the balcony.

My wife never jumped off a balcony. She shot herself in the head.

My daughter was the first to find her.

I've explained it to the police many times.

Don't bother us with that any more.

I'm very sorry sir, we won't bother you any more.

Good night.


Another shochu.


Susan Jones, who was wounded in a terrorist attack in Morocco... was discharged from a Casablanca hospital this morning, local time.

The American people finally have a happy ending, after five days... of frantic phone calls and hand wringing.
