Are you married?

Don't smudge it. Just leave it right like that for her to find in the morning.

Julia, what do you do outside of-?

Phillip, I do everything. I do a bit of everything.

She does everything.

Get off.

I like to make people's dreams come true, Phillip.

You know, I like to- Dreams come true?

Well, I kind of like to sell things to people-

You know, things they really want.

Even things they didn't know they wanted. You know what I'm saying?

I was in real estate just recently.

Coincidence, that's what I'm in.

Really? Yeah, that's my boss.

That's your business? It is, actually, yeah.

Oh my God.

Now I know you're good. She's the one.

I missed her. I don't know what happened to her.

Where'd she go? How are you doing?

# some of them want to use you... #

# some of them want to get used by you #

# some of them want to abuse you #

# some of them want to be abused... #


This is my car.

What?

I have to go.

Don't touch me.

Where's my purse?


Just tell him. Just tell him.

I had some, um, family problems.

Family problems? You've got family problems?

I've got family problems too.

I've got lots of problems.

But you know what? I still come to work Every day on time.

Okay, look, Frank, I'm gonna pull myself together, right?

I mean, what are we talking about here?

I got drunk once-

One or two drinks at lunch.

But since I've been here I have been really good.

I have been on time- all my meetings- everything.

Ask Mitch. Um, yeah.

That's not what Doreen told me.

Doreen? Oh. I hate Doreen.

And the way you talk to her- you know what?

I'm sorry, but this is going to end right here.

Frank.

I really wish this had turned out better, but I'm sorry, Mitch.

No, you don't have to be sorry. I'm the one who is-

I'm sorry. Julia's sorry too. Right, Julia?

Julia? This Doreen, She's fucking saving her own fucking lazy fat ass, fat-fucking-ass bitch.

Fucking fat-ass fucking bitch.

Julia, Julia. Julia.

Julia, can I have a moment alone with Mitch, please?

Just give me a second outside. Wait for me outside, please.

I'm sorry. It's okay. It's fine.


Did you take care of your rent check?

Yeah. Really?

Because I spoke to your landlord and he didn't get a thing.

I put it in an envelope. Maybe I forgot to mail it.

Oh, fuck.

Is this about your money, Mitch? Because I'm gonna pay you back every Penny.

How? You just got fired.

Julia, I'm warning you- if you do not stick to our arrangement...

What? ... and go to the meetings...

What happens? lose my number.

I gave birth.

I was drunk out of my head.

I didn't know where I was or with whom.

I know I wasn't in a hospital or a police station or even a bedroom.

I just- whomp- emptied out my guts, got rid of her.

I didn't take care of her to such an extent that when I saw her start drinking, I watched her pick up the bottle and I didn't do a thing.

I saw it as inevitable.

I gave her her first drink.

I think I- no, I know I wanted her to suffer as much as I had, and even more.

Hi. We have a new schedule.

There's gonna be some construction work and we're gonna do some changes.

Can I offer you some coffee?

No.

Hi, Elena. Hi, Henry.

It's the new schedule. There's gonna be some changes because of the construction around here.

Great. I love the color.

Can I offer you some coffee?

I don't drink coffee.

Candy, Elena?

Okay. No, this one. Thank you.

Thanks.

Hi.

You know, the people here- they're really nice to each other.

You can feel safe here.

And we can help you.

I know you.

You live right across from me. We're neighbors.

Well, I'm not really down with the good-neighbor shit.

Oh.

I live alone also.

Well, not really alone.

I have a boy-

Tom.

He's eight years old.

Now he's living with his grandfather.

How do you know I live alone?

Oh, because I see you in the kitchen- your kitchen, yeah, through the window.

Oh. That's right.

Lord grant me the serenity... Bye.

...to accept the things I can't change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Keep coming back. It works if you work it.

Yes!

All right, 4008 Vincent.

Julia, come on, go. Oh, we are! We're here.

Let's go. I got an early day tomorrow, sweetie. Come on.

No no, Honey, you're not gonna disappoint me again.

Julie, no. You're gonna come up right, for a little nightcap?

You know what? Fuck off, all right?

You don't know how to end things, all right? So go.

Go fucking look in the mirror, All right? For God's sakes.

I'm going now.

Hurry up.

Oh! Oh!

You're not going to go help the lady?

No, you go help her.

Where the fuck is it?

You are in my apartment.

I got coffee.

Why the- why am I here?

I found you in your car.

Don't you remember?

Ow. I need water.

Uh-huh, yeah, You've got quite the bird's-eye view of my fairy palace from here, don't you, huh?

This happens to me sometimes.

That's why it's good for you to go to the meetings.

Yeah.

The meetings.

Those prayers and women lamenting and- it kind of creeps me out.

I find it obscene.

Somebody forces me to go to those meetings, you know.

It's not my decision.

My boy-

That man-

He forbids me seeing him.

But it's not my decision either.

He tells the boy terrible things.

He tells him I'm evil and that I'm sick here.

He lives like a prisoner in this man's house with dogs and bodyguards.

It's been five years now.

But I'm gonna see Tom again soon.

Yeah. There's a man who's in charge who watches him.

And-and if I give him money, he will let me see Tom.

I'm gonna kidnap Tom.

What?

I'm just giving a child his mother back.

He deserves to know where half his heart comes from, right?

And-and, I mean, that way we can get away from his filth.

Really? I need your help.

Please, I'm begging you. I need your help.

I can't do this alone.

I'll pay you. I'll pay you.

To-to kidnap your kid?

Yes. You're fucking nuts.

If he calls and says yes, he's gonna take Tom to a river where they go and bathe.

I know this place. Nobody goes there.

And, you know, all you have to do is stay in your car a- and-and wait there.

My car stays right where it is, lady.

There are license plates on cars.

You're right. And I can rent one in my name.

And for doing this I will give you $50,000.

$50,000? That's a lot of money.

I know, yeah, but I have all this money.

I have it in Mexico. In Mexico.

And I also have stocks from my husband.

I have a lot of money and I don't want any of that.

I just need Tom. I just want Tom.

No, don't go. Please, don't go.

Just wait. Okay okay okay.

I need to show you what I'm saving him from.

Okay. Don't leave.

What the fuck?

You know, my child-

He can never be happy with this man.

He is going to destroy my kid.

I gotta go.

I don't know the first thing about kids.

Great story.


Oh, fuck.


Hello.

Hey, Honey Honey, we're closed.

Hey, you're- I'm here. You're open.

We've been closed for about half an hour now.

Could I just get a vodka tonic?

A vodka tonic?

Can I just get-?

I'm waiting for something.

Yeah? Yeah, sure.

Vodka tonic?

Please.

Nice place you've got here.

Well...

You don't mind if I smoke, do you?

No.

You don't want me smoking in the street outside-

Not a good look. Honey, you just sit here and smoke.

You're a kind man.

Mm-hmm.

You're a kind man.


Going somewhere?

Mitch! Seen my pants?

'Cause I can't find them anywhere. I'll make some coffee.

You know, what you did do was you collapsed.

Yeah yeah. I picked you up.

I had to carry you to my car.

I put you inside. I opened a window.

You know what you said? "fuck you. "

No, what you said-

Oh, God, you said-

You went like this and then you said, "the wind caresses my face like no man ever will. "

Fucking poet. God, you were so beautiful.

I kissed you.

Well, you know I have this unbelievable power over men.

Yeah.

You did a bad thing.

You did a bad thing.

How would you know anything happened between us?

And why would you even give a shit? Aren't you the one who likes to wake up in the morning not remembering what happened?

I am finding this whole experience very revealing.

The real Mitch- no saint after all, Honey.

I mean, these photographs of the little family- the lovely wife and the adorable children everywhere.

I didn't sleep with you. You slept with me.

You were here alone.

Bullshit.

You were asleep there in a coma on the Couch. I'm in there asleep.

I woke up in your bed with my dress half off.

I wake up, you're suddenly crying your little eyes out.

I was crying? Yeah, like a little baby.

I had to put my arms around you- a big giraffe like you.

"I don't want to sleep alone. "

Oh, really? Yeah yeah.

And you know what, Julia? Any guy would do.

You stink of loneliness, Buster.

You're not my type.

Do you think you could shut up for a minute? Is that possible?

'Cause I'd like to tell you something here. If you're not careful, you could lose it all in one night- in one bad night.

I'll tell you about the old Mitch, okay?

Oh, come on. If you shut up.

The old Mitch, who was a real fucking drinker, could drink you under the table any fucking day of the week, believe me.

A disaster for my family, but I didn't give a fuck.

And one bad night One of my kids gets in the way.

And I just-

I just wanted to push her, but that's not what I did.

What I did is I hit her.

All this rag came out of me.

I wanted to do some real fucking damage.

My fist came down on her. She just went-

What is she, eight years old? Skinny little arms- she went flying against that wall. She dropped right there, not breathing. My wife goes running over to her, picks her up, takes her to the hospital.

Saved her life- my little Lucy.

You know what I did?

I went in there and I went to sleep.

Passed out.

Just another night.

13 years- haven't seen them since.

Julia, do not waste a second thinking that you've got these magical incredible powers, because what you are is an out-of-control suicidal blind alcoholic.

But I'm here.

I'm here to help you.

Are you in love with me, Mitch?

Is this what this is? Oh, God.

You know, it's not a good idea.

I'm a disaster to be in love with.

You know that.

You know, I just fuck you up and then you hate me and then- and then I lose my friend.

So the ring that I got in my pocket here-

I shouldn't bring it out 'cause you're gonna say no?

Listen, kiddo, if I'm in love with you, none of your fucking business, okay?

That's too bad 'cause you got great legs.

It's right here.

Here?

The river is down there.

You want me to walk down there?

Yeah, yes, come. Well, I'm not-

It's fine. I'll help you.

Okay. Okay.

This is where they're gonna park their car, right here.

And this is where they have their picnic, Over here.

And we're here with Tom.

Okay, I'm gonna bring him and tell him I need to speak to him alone- you know, this intimacy thing.

And we're gonna be around this area.

And there's nowhere to run, see?

So he's not gonna think anything.

And the car's gonna be over there.

So, okay, and here's when I'm taking the gun.

I'm shooting in his direction- poom poom.

Whoa whoa whoa. That is the first time I've heard you bring up a gun.

'Cause I'm not, you know- well, it's only to frighten him Because I need to take his car keys and the cell phone.

It's only that. It's only that. Don't worry.

So in the moment that he needs to reach someone, we're gonna be really far away.

So, okay, that is gonna be your sign to come here- to come and pick us up right here.

Eh? See?

You know, Elena, I have to ask this- Yeah.

Um...

What if Tom doesn't wanna?

Doesn't want what? Doesn't wanna go.

I mean, doesn't recognize you.

Oh, no, he will recognize me.

He will?

Yeah yeah.

Okay, so say- say- let's say that it all goes good And you've got your kid back.

Then what?

Well, then you drive us back to San Diego, you know?

Because we're going home.

We're going to Mexico.

I have everything there ready for him.

You know, that asshole wanted to leave me without everything Brian gave me.

And I fought him. I fought him and I won the trial.

So now I'm rich, Julia.

I have more money than I need.

Yeah.

I don't know.

# I can't get you out of my mind #

# true love #

# is so hard to find... #

Hello.

Elena, it's me- Julia.

I'll do it.

I knew it. I knew it.

God told me. Thank you so much.

No no, I mean, the guy is a prick, right?

And he's got your kid.

And, you know, there's no mother in the world that wouldn't do what you're doing.

So you can rest assured I'm with you.

Hey, does Nick Costello still live here?

Nick- Nick Costello.

Yes, he sleep. He's here?

Yes. Can I-? Old friend.

Yes. Nick- very old-

He's not sleeping. There he is.

He's lounging is what he's doing.

Whoa whoa whoa, look who's come to visit me.

A blast from the past.

Julia, Julia.

Look at you. What's happened to you?

You look terrific. Look at you. Oh, I'm a dinosaur.

Sit down. Okay.

Sit down. All right, all right.

I want to give you a kiss. Mm-mm!

Whoa. You got a nurse now or what?

Kitty- that's my wife.

Your wife? You got a wife?

Yeah. Man!

Now, Nicky, you think she might like to go out to the store and get a few beers or something, you know, get lost for a while?

I have something I want to ask you.

No funny business. I just have to ask you something.

...and the woman is a total nutjob.

She doesn't give a shit about me. All she does all the time non-stop is talk about the kid, the kid, the kid, the kid.

And I'm supposed to take the risk of going away for what? A measly 20 grand?

And for what? Why would I do that for her?

And there's real money there, Nick.

I tell you, I've seen the pictures and they're loaded.

But you know, the money is not enough for her.

No no, she has to have the kid.

She's the mother, for Christ's sakes. Well, exactly.

That's what I'm saying. She's the mother.

And of course, the lady- you know, she has to have her kid.

Right, okay. Well, then she has to pay for it.

And it's time my luck changed.

And it's time something went right for me for a change, and you.

Yeah, how's that gonna happen?

It's simple. Okay, listen here.

I go with her. I get the kid.

Sweet, okay. And then here's the kicker-

We kidnap the kid from her.

Oh, Jesus Christ. We kidnap the kid from her.

Listen to me. We're coming back in the car.

I think of something. You know me- I'll think of something.

And I stop the car and you're there, right?

You're there and you separate them and you take the kid and you take off with the kid. You just take off with the kid, okay?

And don't worry about the woman 'cause I'll deal with her.

And then- and then what happens?

And then, you know, she has no choice.

I mean, what is she gonna do?

She's either gotta come up with the money- whatever we ask- or the child goes back to the old man, she never sees him again.

I mean, she's got to pay, right?

And plus, it's not even like she can go to the cops.

It's the double-cross of a lifetime.

And the money- it's right there.

It's right there. I can smell it.

And-and they can go anywhere they want.

They can go to Mexico. They can go to bueno bye-bye.

And we can go where the fuck we like.

Julia, where did you get this idea?

Nick, you know my life. You know my life.

You know it. I'm so sick of it.

I work. I work like a dog.

And where's the money? I don't know.

It's just- it's like- it goes through my fingers.

I mean, I don't know where.

I'm- I'm tired, Nicky. And what do I do?

I smile and I eat shit from guys.

And what do I have? I mean, I don't have anybody.

And I get drunk.

And I'm getting old.

Jesus, you're not getting-

I'm getting old. Look at this.

I'm getting old. You're just as beautiful and crazy as ever.

And she has her kid. She has a kid and she has all that money. She has all that inheritance.

And the money- it's just there. We just have to take it.

Nicky, Nicky, Nicky, You're the only person I can come to with this.

Julia, Julia, Julia. Nicky, baby, Nicky.

Wait wait, listen listen.

Listen, you and me- Yeah yeah yeah.

It was a while ago. It's a long time ago.

Now I love Kitty.

I've never been like this.

She's a gem. I don't want to be put away, Leaving her alone for 20 years.

I'm sorry, but I can't do this with you.

Now walk away from this insanity.

Come on.

Tell this woman you're not interested. It's ludicrous.


Hey, Leon.

Come over here. I want to ask you something.

All right, look, it's gonna be $10 for the first pump, about $20 for the next pump.

No, man, get in. I need some help with something.

What do you need help with?

It's kind of a business proposition.

Oh, a business proposition?

Get in the car. I'll tell you all about it.

I can definitely do that. Yo.

Hey, guys. It's a beautiful day.

Well, hello, Julia.

You mind if we drive a little?

Yeah, go ahead.

I need to ask a favor.

Uh-huh? Um, okay, So I... I loaned some money to this woman.

And she's not paying me back.

Oh, girl, you need Leon.

But here's the good news-

I think I have a way to stop her.

And that is?

She's got problems with her kid, okay?

She's been a bad mother. And the kid is- it's supposed to go to a foster home.

And she's hiding the kid.

So I figured if I steal the kid-

Stop stop. Hold on a second.

I just want to scare her a little.

How much this bitch into you for?

$5,000.

In.

I just feel so nervous.

Oh, Honey, you have got nothing to be nervous about.

Yeah?

And look, think of it this way- this time on Wednesday you're gonna be with Tom in the car.

Yeah?

Yes. Yeah, that's it.

No, I'm not-

It's pretty. Please let me have your hand.

Please let me have your hand.

I want to give this to you.

When temptation's strong, okay?

You just pray. Oh, I do?

Nothing gonna happen to me. No.

Gonna, like, go up in a puff of smoke?

You just kiss it. Okay.

There you go. Okay, there you go.

So nothing's gonna happen to me now.

Okay.

You're gonna put the bullet right in there.

I showed it to you slow for a reason. You're gonna keep putting them in there.

You're gonna take your clip and you're gonna take your gun, gonna pop it in there, pull the chamber.

And there's a bullet in the chamber. Take your safety off.

You bring it up. You're looking through the crosshairs.

You put the person in your sight and you blow that motherfucker- poom.

The cat's gone. You feel me?

Okay. All right.

Yes. Oh, and I have this too.


It's like death.

White's better.

Now I have to change it. I have to change that.

And pray with me.

We agreed.

Tom- when I get Tom, he'll give us the money, everything he owes. 'cause we're gonna have everything.

And it's all Tom's money.

And that man, he is so old, he's gonna inherit everything soon.

And you know what? I'm gonna have more money than I need, much more than I need. And you should come with us to Mexico.

Come with us. It's gonna be a big house. Yes? Please?

Eight-year-old Tom Whytekear was kidnapped this Wednesday afternoon.

The grandson of the renowned multimillionaire electronic kingpin Clyde Whytekear, the child disappeared in particularly violent circumstances.

Marcus Adams, the man minding the child, was run over by an unidentified car and seriously injured during the incident. He is currently in a coma and no diagnosis has been reached as to his chances of survival.

Police are investigating the whereabouts of Tom's mother Elena Gonzales, a Mexican citizen with a tumultuous psychiatric history who mysteriously disappeared from her LA apartment the day before the crime.

The coincidence of her disappearance and Tom's kidnapping remains unresolved and-

Whytekear Enterprises, Security Services.

What can I do for you?

I would like to leave a very important message for Mr. Whytekear concerning the whereabouts of his grandson- the kid they kidnapped.


Oh.

Okay, you don't make a sound.

What? What is it?

I can't feel my legs. I can't feel them.

They're dead. It's pins and needles. It's your blood.

Rub them. I have to go.

Okay, come on, come on, come on.

Come on, come on. In here.

No no, I have to see you, okay?

I can't go if you watch.

Yeah.

Okay, Tom?

Come in here and get a- get a burger.

Be good for you to eat.

Are you going to kill me, ma'am, after my grandfather gives you the money?

Am I-

Am I gonna kill you? What the- what kind of a fucking question is that?

No, I'm not.

What the-

Come here.

I-

I didn't take you to kill you.

And I didn't take you for any fucking money either.

Do you remember your mother, Tom?

Huh? Elena? She's a friend of mine.

She's my- she's a- she's a-

Good- very very good- she's my best friend.

Right? And she... She asked me to take you because you know your grandfather doesn't let you see her?

Well, she wants to see you.

She- she- she needs to see you.

You're her little boy and she misses you.

And so I'm taking you to her, and then after I'm going to take you back to your grandfather.

Okay? And that's it. Fuck.

So now I don't need to tie you up or anything.

You know? From now on.

'Cause you know it now.

You know the deal, all right?

Well, just listen.

Just take these. This is stomach medicine.

And it's gonna be good for you, okay?

That's what made me sick. No no no.

This is medicine. This why it's called medicine.

I mean, it's good for you. Come on, come on, come on, Tom.

No no, not me. I, uh...

I saw him when he got out of the car.

Uh, he was half naked and, um...

And I... and I saw the woman from the TV- the mother.

Um, I recognized him.

Where are they now?

They're in this house. They're still there.

It's full of crackheads!

And, um, I-I- I know because... well, uh, I'm no Angel.

And, okay, so it's where I get my shit.

Um, but, uh... you know, I can't be involved in this.

I have to remain anonymous because- how do I know it's really Tom?

Um, he's wearing a bathing suit with blue stripes.

What is it you want?

What is it? Tell me!

Uh, I want what I can sell-

My information, $2 million.

$2 million and you guarantee he will be at the address you give me?

They're there and they've been there.

I've been watching them all night.

And when can you get the money?

Tomorrow.

Okay, 8:00 P.M., L.A. Greyhound Bus Station, locker 444.


Yeah, well, I can see you're mad at me.

Uh, I know you're mad, but I had to go out, right?

I had to tie you up.

I mean, you run away and your mom never gets to see you.

See what she gave me to give you?

Huh? That's her own beautiful medallion.

What?

Yeah, see...

No need to cover my face.

You can see me.

You know why we're together.

So she gave me this to give to you and she wants you to wear it To protect you and to keep you safe until she can do that herself.

Now... if I promise you I'll never tie you up again... are you gonna promise me that you're not gonna run off and you're gonna stay with me and you're gonna be good?

Mm-hmm!

Yeah, and the pants.

And the shoes, yeah, put them on.

Just put them on.

Are they good?

They're too big, ma'am.

Well, better too big than too small.

Come on, sit down.

Sit down. Jesus, sit down!

I'm going to get you some food.


What are you doing?

I like it in here, ma'am.

W- well, why? I mean, we've got food, everything. You have a problem?

You scare me.

What?


Son of a bitch.

No no, don't come in.

No cleaning. No cleaning.

Get out. Get out!


Okay, I'm gonna untie you now.

All right, so hold still.

Let me help you.

No no, go slow. You liar!

Let me go.

Ow ow!

Tom!

That was the last time, I promise!

Oh, kiss my butt, you idiot!

Tom, where are you going? There's nowhere to go here.

That was the last time!

I swear to God, I'm not coming back.

We're staying here for a while.

You need water!

Look!

I'm gonna leave this here.

Okay?

I'm gonna leave you alone.


Tom!

Tom!

I see you.

What are you doing up there?

Come down.

Stay in the shade. It's hot.

You want me to come up and getcha?

I can see you.

Oh, for-


you're gonna get burned.

Don't tell me I didn't warn you.

We've gotta go down and get some water.

Where are you going?

How long do we have to stay here?

Not long. Until she calls.

When she calls, we'll go.

Where?

You'll find out.

I don't have to tell you everything.

Why isn't she just here now?

She sees me- done! I go home.

It's not... it's not that easy, you know?

She...

She has to be careful.

Because of your grandfather.

He really hates her, you know?

On account of her being Mexican.

You know that?

Which, by the way, makes you half Mexican.

I betcha he doesn't talk to you about that.

Huh?

I bet he's really really sweet to you.

He's a fucking racist to her.

You listen to me, your grandfather, he's just jealous because- because he knows he's just some tired out old fuck who's in a wheelchair and who's gonna die soon.

And your mother, she's...

she's wonderful.

She's just a beautiful human being.

She's warm and got this beautiful smile.

And everybody loves her and... actually you look like her.

You've got her eyes.

She looks like a- like a squaw, Like a beautiful red Indian squaw with, you know, long shiny black hair.

And she's generous- generous heart.

Not like him.

Then why did she choose someone like you with a gun?

You put me in the trunk. Are you shot?

Where is the bullet hole?

No!

She doesn't know I have a gun.

And anyway, what else do I do?

I mean, I come to you, I say, "you don't know me, I don't know you. You get in my car.

I'm taking you to your mom. "

Would you have come? I don't think so.

You don't give a fuck. You don't think about her.

All she does is think about you.

You think about it. You wouldn't even be here If it wasn't for her.

She- she ripped you out of her own guts.

You know what she said to me? She said...

"For this little boy to become a man-" those were her words: to become a man.

"- he has to know where half his heart comes from. "

That's her.

When you see her, you'll thank me.


Okay.

Okay okay!

If you don't fucking do this- motherfucking do it.

Wake up and fucking do it.

Okay.


Get away from the car!

Get away from the fucking car.

Oh my God!

The fucking cops were there! I saw them, you fucking bastard.

Liar! I saw them.

The money was dropped. I did my part, now where is Tom?

You don't give a shit about seeing your kid again.

Julia Harris, we know who you are.

We'll pay, but I want Tom.

If you lay a hand on him, you are fucking dead!

Tom? Tom?

Tom?

Are you hungry?

Why am I here- in this place?

I went to get gas and...

I didn't wake you 'cause you were sleeping.

And when I came back...

guess who had gone? Don't you remember?

I drove around that entire desert like a crazy woman.

You didn't hear me? Didn't hear me hollering?

Completely fucked my car. I had to get a new one.

Where was I? Well, good question.

Listen to me, you're a fucking kid.

To go off into the desert like that is so fucking dumb.

What would I have told your mother? I don't want to see her.

What do you mean you don't want to see her?

I wanna go home.

Look, we're so near it now.

You know, we crossed the border last night.

We're in Mexico now.

We're in her country. We're in your country.

This is Mexico?


Is this where she lives?

Hey, how about that?

You like that?

No, those aren't good. Why not?

It's got a ball- I can do it myself.

I'm gonna go over there, okay? I'll wait for you there.

Okay?

I'm gonna be watching you, okay?

Uh, excuse me, could I have a cerveza?

Please? A cerveza.

There.

Do you know a good- a cheap hotel Near here? Thanks.

What is cheap for you? Uh, I don't know.

Not expensive, not- nothing fancy.

Just some- I don't know, family place?

Cerveza, por favor.

You want help? No, it's okay, thanks.

You need a hotel? I know a pretty good one.

It's around here. I can show you.

It's like two blocks in the main street-

I'm just waiting on a friend. Oh.

You shouldn't be alone here, you know?

Oh really? Uh-huh.

A pretty lady like you in Tijuana?

This is bad for you.

Oh, it is? Mmm.

Why is that?

You see, I don't want to scare you, but...

You don't want to scare me? Well, I mean, No, really. This town is full of thieves.

Mmm.

Yeah, you better go to a beautiful place.

We have a lot of-

Mazatlan, por ejemplo...

Puerto Vallarta is beautiful.

Acapulco is very touristic.

So I can take you. I can be your guide.

I can take you there if you want.

Oh, I see, right.

You can be sure of one thing: that when I am in the market for a tourist guide, I'll remember you, Mr. This-is-bad-for-you.

So I'm Diego Sierra.

You got nothing better to do with your time, Diego, than hit on gringos in bars?


What if she calls and you're sleeping?

I'm not sleeping. I'm just closing my eyes.

You have no idea how tired I am.

Will you turn off the light?

I'm all dressed.

Great.

Welcome? It's Julia Harris.

I'm calling for the money. Tom's being treated well.

He's okay. Nothing- nothing bad has happened to him.

Now listen to me. A man came to see me.

He recognized you from the papers.

He had, you know, a lot of problems with his wife and his kids.

If you know what I'm talking about, don't say< his name, just say yes.

Yes.

Now the police don't know anything about him.

He talked to me about you And I choose to trust you and you know you can trust him as well.

He's your friend.

He will give you the money and you will give us back Tom.

He'll be on his own, no cops, and then I want you to disappear.

Okay.

All three of us must make sure Tom is coming back home.

I'll call him now.

He is waiting. Okay.

Yeah? Mitch?

Is that you? Julia.

I suppose you talked to Whytekear, right?

Julia, you can talk. Nobody's listening in, Julia.

Is the boy all right? Yeah, he's fine.

Just don't hurt him. Don't hurt him?

Is that what you think of me, Mitch?

And I suppose you- I suppose that's what you told him, right?

That I'm some- what? alcoholic degenerate moron?

No, that's what he thought before I talked to him.

Okay?

Listen, I'm interested in one thing.

One thing! Getting that kid back home, yes.

Okay. Well... you bring the money here. Where?

In Tijuana-

At the airport. When can you get there?

Was that her?

Yeah, she just Hung up.

Why didn't you get me?

Huh? Oh, I wanted to, but she wanted you to sleep.

It seems like she has to come down from the mountains- that's where she's from, and she'll be here tomorrow.

Why did she say to let me sleep?

Listen, why don't we- the two of us, just celebrate, huh? Celebrate what?

Your mom's coming tomorrow, huh?!

Really? Yeah, a fiesta!


Thanks.

Okay, we'll have two orders of that, And... what?

Why do you have to order for me?

You have a better idea? I can pick my own!

Well, pipe up, buddy. Come on, what do you want?

You can make sense of that?

Time's up. We'll have two orders of that- the carne con frijoles, and I'll have- with fries.

And I'll have another gin- triple.

Can you get through yours?

Not very well.

Ah, my shirt! What?

It's got ketchup on it. It's okay, just wipe it off.

Get it off, get it off! I can't even see it.

Get it off. Just wipe it off.

Let me do it then. Let me do it.

She's not gonna notice. I mean, kids are always dirty.

Everybody knows that.

Listen to you, Mr. Get-it-off!

I heard your grandfather coming through there, mister.

Oh yeah? Well, when my grandfather started out, He had nothing. He's tough.

My father's dead because he was weak.

He wasn't able to see what was important in his life.

You never even knew him. He chose drugs over me and my mom.

I knew that about him. He was always gone, leaving me and her alone.

I don't want to be like him.

Well, sure, so he fucked up.

But, you know, I mean, what? He took drugs?

I have news for you. Not everybody is 100% perfect.

I hate him.

You don't have to hate him. He's dead.

It doesn't count anymore.

When you were born, He thought that you were the best thing that had ever happened to him.

Oh yeah? That's 'cause the rest of his life meant nothing.

Your mother and your father, they had years of happiness together.

And you're the proof of that.

My mother is a lost soul.

Your mother is a lost soul, huh?

Well, why did you go and buy all of your Fancy clothes to meet her then, huh? What's that all about?

That's just a waste?

I'm fine by myself. I don't need anyone.

Oh, hey. My American friends.

How are you doing? Diego, right?

Right. Right.

So you finally find where to stay?

Diego, we're in the middle of an important conversation.

Yeah.

Ah, gotcha! Can I sit, please?

Thank you.

It is hot in here.

So it's good to see you. What are your plans?

You- you going back soon to the States?

Why? Do you want to go to America?

You want to be my pool boy?

I don't know, really? Why not?

Have you got any better offers lately?

No.

Yes. You can be sure of that.

And I'm thinking that I'd like to get a place here. I like it.

At the bar last night. What what?

Some guys asked me who are you. Who?

I don't remember. And I say... you were just- They asked who we were?

Yes, and I just say you were Americans traveling.

You said we were American? Oh, fuck!

American, you're American!

And you're traveling, no?

Why did you take me back to your house? That's what I want to know.

It doesn't matter who- where you are.

The boy has been- it doesn't matter where you are!

Maybe they can follow you. It could be here, it could be in your hotel.

They put a fucking gun in your head and you can do nothing.

That's the thing. And if you go to the police, maybe they can kill the kid.

So we- you have to be calm.

I'm gonna be with you. You have to be calm.

And we have to- we must wait.

Wait for what? For the call.

They're gonna call. They have to call.

How are they gonna know where to find- I mean...

They'll find you. They'll find you.

They always deal with the family.

Is this him? Yeah, he has a message.

I don't have anything to do with this and I don't know who these people are, okay?

But I got this call and they told me to come here and tell you that it's gonna be $50,000 by tomorrow.

And to get your phone number.

$50,000- I don't have that kind of money.

You know these people?

Ma'am, just a taxi driver.

I am Miguel Alarcon.

Um, you can ask. I live by the street where your kid was playing. I live there.

But I deliver messages for the people all the time.

That- that's it. I don't know who they are.

And that's all.

Just write down your number here.

They want it.

I'm not rich.

I'm just-

A mother.

I mean, if I did, I would give anything.

What's your name? Miguel?

Yes, Miguel. What do I do?

I don't know. Call your family in America.

My family? I don't have a family.

I'm by myself.

Danny is... half Mexican- like you.

His father, my husband, was Mexican. He's dead.

We are poor, like you.

I- I couldn't pay his debts in the United States.

That's why I came here.

You know, I can tell you this: that that you're saying, it's going to be very dangerous for the boy because they will know that you're lying.

I'm not lying. It's the truth.

Well, um, when they call me I just tell that you're not going to pay.

Okay? No no no, wait wait wait.

Hey hey hey, wait.

Listen to me, listen to me.

I will pay. I will pay.

Tonight, okay.

Okay. Right, okay.

But I want to meet these people. What?

And I want- I want the kid then I'm gonna pay.

But I get the boy first.

That's it.

What what?!

Let me tell you this, lady, okay?

These people are kidnappers. You know what that means?

Yeah!

I mean, they have your kid, God damn it. They are going to kill your son.

What- what kind of mother are you?

You don't find the money and- they'll call you, okay?

Good day. Where is he going?

No no, tell him! Tell him that I want to go see so I can explain.

The thing is that he doesn't know a thing. He's just a taxi driver.

And you honestly believe that he has nothing to do with this?

Huh?

At some point they're gonna get in touch with you and you have to wait! And I'm gonna be with-


Yes? You don't pay?!

No, I pay, I pay it.

You want to see the eyes of your son in front of your door, bitch, find $50,000 for tonight!

Fuck.


Where's the boy, huh?

Call your fucking friends up. I told you, I'm just a taxi driver.

Come here, stand up, stand up, stand there where I can see you. Stand here where I can see you!

Where did you put him!?

I saw you! You went to the police And then they called me.

Tell me where the boy is. Just tell me!

I don't know where he is. Just give them the money.

If you don't give them the money, they will kill me too.

I can't. The money is coming tonight.

From his father. He's rich. So what?

But he needs the boy before he gives the money.

I told you that's bullshit! I took the boy from the father without telling him... kind of illegally.

Illegally? I'm not the mother.

And he's bringing a lot of money to get the boy back.

And I'll give it all to you. I'll give you $100,000 all for you, just tell me where the boy is.

So-so-so-so- you are not the mother?

No. But the father comes with the money? Yes, tonight.

Who has the money, you or this bastard?

He does and he is bringing it here tonight.

But I will give it all to you, $100,000 to you personally if you will help me find the boy.

If he has the money, he is the one we might be calling.

Not you.

You're nothing. What?

Tell me the name! What?

What? Why?

What does that have to do with anything?

Okay, don't tell.

You know the boy will talk.

Put the phone down. You stop doing that.

I tell- you put- you put that phone down.

Put the gun away. You put it down.

Freeze!


Miguel?

Miguel?


Si, ¿Santos?

Okay, bye.


Hey hey.


¿Como estas?


How did you find this place, before I kill you?

I only want the child. I have money.

I can give you $100,000. I can give you-

I have this money.

How do you find this place? You're fucking crazy to come here.

My child went missing and I went to the police and they gave me this address.

What are you saying? Fucking puta!


Who fucking tell you at the police station, puta?

My friend D-Diego. Who?

My friend Diego. What?

He wanted to help. Diego. Diego?

Fuck you.

Fuck.

Tom, you in here?

Tom? Oh, Tom, God, you're here.

I'm here. It's okay, it's okay.

It's okay, it's okay. It's okay, hon. I'm here now.

They're gonna kill me! They're not gonna kill anybody.

This is just a big show. They want money, that's it.

You got us into this. This is your fault!

All your fault.

Simmer down! Buster, listen to me.

This is all just a big scam. They want money.

Right?

Okay, well, then tell them to call my grandfather.

He'll give them whatever they want. Well, I did.

I've done it. It's okay. He's sending money tonight with somebody.

You called my grandfather? Yeah, it's okay.

It's all happening. This kind of thing happens all the time.

It's like a national pastime here.

They take people and then they get their money and then they let them go.

Listen, as far as they're concerned-

Listen to me, listen to me!

Listen- listen to me! Look at me, look at me.

Listen to me!

As far as they're concerned, I'm your mother, you are my son, right?

You don't say a word about your real mother, and you don't say one thing about your grandfather, right?

So you let me do all the talking. You keep your mouth shut.

Okay? And I'm gonna get us out of here.

How? Well-

Huh huh?

They want- they want to know how you find this place.

How you find this place? You follow Miguel?

You follow Miguel? Miguel?

I- I don't know any Miguels.

How you don't know? Miguel!

Miguel! The one you saw at the cafe, remember?

Miguel! Who did you see at the police?

Hey!

What- where's the boy?

Well, where is he? We're doing this my way.

He's in Tijuana. Oh God.

I left him in Tijuana.

You- you left an eight-year-old boy alone in Tijuana?

He's safe! He's being well looked after.

By who? He's with-

People I know. People I trust.

I don't trust you, Mitch.

You went to see Whytekear. You're on his side.

How can I be sure you're alone, that there isn't an army of cops behind you?

Now you're gonna do what I tell you. I will give Tom back When I'm safe and I'll tell you where he is and he will be there and waiting for you...

Okay.

...and you can take him back to that bastard!

Just-just-just-just-

Just take it easy. Just- just take it easy.

Julia, look, he- he's- he's- he's an old man- Whytekear.

He's sick. He's dying. He's got a tube up his nose.

He can't- he can't breathe.

You know what is going to be the first thing they do when they get that kid back?

They're gonna come looking for me. And they're gonna find me And they're gonna fucking crucify me.

I am fighting for my skin here, Mitch, and I am dead without that money And you know it.

So shoot me, go ahead. You got a gun? Take it!

Go ahead. What are you gonna do now, huh?

You're not getting the money unless I get the kid.

You gotta trust me, Julia.

Look at me, why do you think I'm here?

It's because of you.

You're here for one reason.

For only one reason, Mitch, and that is that your wife didn't turn you in.

Oh yeah.

You got lucky, man.

I don't have that luck.

Look at me.

You know I didn't turn you in.

Do I? Julia, We all knew that Elena's stupid insane story about getting her kid back was bullshit. We heard it over and over again at meetings.

Why is it that you are the only one who believed her? Why?

You're dangerous to this kid, Julia, because you're a danger to yourself.

You see that? No.

You don't have the guts to see it.

You're blind.

I'm going.

Go.

Julia?

We're at the airport hotel. We're waiting for the kid.


Ohhh...


You got the money? Shut your hole. Yeah, I got the money.

Not here.

I will feed that fucking kid's face to my dog.

I'm not the mother, asshole.

Right? I don't give a flying fuck what you do to him.

You're not the one who kidnapped that kid, Santos, Let me tell you: I did.

Yeah, take it in.

You didn't ask the family for a ransom.

I did! You know for how much?

$2 million.

Oh yeah.

Today you lose, I win. ¿Entiendes, fuckface?

Here's my deal: You get exactly half.

I'll do the math for you- that is $1 million.

Okay? When I get the kid back.

I can't believe this. No mommies.

Read "The L.A. Times," you stupid shit.

My fucking face is all over it. You don't know who I am?

I'm Julia Harris. I kidnapped that little shit.

And I need a gun.

# okay, what do we got here? #

# a horny black boy and a frisky white girl #

# eye each other across the room #

# and the chemistry is unbearable #

# and definitely not on anyone's agenda #

# he suggests they go someplace they won't be seen #

# and she thinks otherwise, finally they agree to go #

# and put up with dunkin' donuts #

# the usual story #

# they fall in love under a hail of spit #

# that they ignore while secretly conspiring to murder each other #

# hoping that will alleviate the slightly more uncomfortable #

# feelings that may arise in a situation like this #

# but behind closed doors, the eyes of the world #

# becoming their wallpaper #

# they melt into a beautiful example of a power #

# that definitely exists #

# and come together on a warm moonlit night... #
