[phone beeps]

Hey. It's me.

Are you coming down?

I know it's hard, Annie, but we both have to deal with it.

[burner clicks and flame whooshes]

What is that supposed to mean?

Yes. I'm being responsible.

Okay, well, somebody has to take care of everything.

And we're her children, for God's sake.

Hold on.

[phone beeps]

I'm not going back to that house.

Annie, we're both supposed to be here.

Stop telling me what I'm supposed to do.

Jesus, you of all people.

What does that mean?

What do you think it means?

When's the last time you used, huh?

You know what? Fuck you.

That was more than four years ago, before I was pregnant.

Yeah, and fuck you too.

So now that you're clean, you just forgot about what she used to do to us?

You forgot how sick she was?

You know what?

I'm just so crazy right now, okay?

I have Eva all on my own, I have work, and now I have to deal with all this.

You know what, Nicole?

You want to forgive her, fine, but I don't.

That's enough.

[phone beeps]

It's our mother's funeral. Are you coming down or what?

Hey. How are you?

Hi. Hi. Fine.

Is Eva asleep? I wanted to say hi.

Oh, really? I just put her down.

I'm sorry. I'm on a neighbour's signal.

I might lose you.

Can you just go get her, please? Now?

Okay. Okay, okay, hold on.

Thanks. I'll get her.

Hey, honey? Hey.

Hi, baby. Can you see Mommy?

Mom?

Shit.

Can you see Mommy, baby?

Baby? Can you hear me?

Shit. Sorry.

Mommy said a bad word.

Can you see me now, baby?

No.

Can you see Mommy?

I can hear you, but I can't see you.

[sighs]

I just wanted to say how much I miss you.

I love you.

I love you so much, okay?

I'm gonna see you in a couple days.

Baby? Can you see me, baby?

Yes. Can you see Mommy?

Yes.

Mommy, who's that behind you?

Hey, Annie.

Um, no one knows Where Nicole is, so could you just call me?

[phone beeps] Hey, Annie, it's Liz.

Could you call me right away?

[phone beeps]

Annie, I just...

I am really Worried about Nicole.

I don't know Where she is.

Please, just call me, okay, and We'll figure this out.

Ah, shit.

Hey, this is Liz.

Just leave a message, and I'll call you back.

Bye.

It's Annie. I just got to my mom's house.

I don't know where Nicole is.

You know what that means.

Um, just don't freak out. She'll show up.

She always does. I'll try calling her.

Bye.

No.

Auntie Liz?

Can I go look at the windows?

Yeah, honey. Go ahead.

So, um, you still haven't heard from her?

No.

Annie, it's been three days.

Yeah, but, I mean, you know how she is.

She probably just couldn't handle all this.

She'll- she'll show up.

Yeah, yeah.

You want to get out of here?

Maybe go to my mom's place or something?

I don't want to really be there alone.

Yeah, I would love that.

Some people just shouldn't have kids.

I don't think you should say that.

I mean, there's a deep love between a mother and her children.

I think it's a beautiful thing.

Hmm.

Oh, is it the same deep love that made Nicole take off on her kid?

Annie.

We don't know what's happened to her.

Yes, we do.

We've see this over and over again.

This is what we do in my family.

When times get tough, we take off.

My dad did it, whoever the hell he is and now Nicole's doing it.

Then why did you come back?

[scoffs]

For Nicole, because we're sisters.

All right. Bye.

Annie, I'm Bill Creek.

I know you told your story to a bunch of people, but would you mind going over it with me?

Why do you want to know what happened to me?

I know your sister.

She's been in and out of here a bunch of times.

I don't need another person telling me I'm crazy.

Nice smoke.

You know what I do now when I get the urge?

They told me you work as a waitress.

What else do you do? What do you want to do?

I don't want to make friends.

You remind me of my daughter.

She's a little bit younger than you.

You guys-you guys are a lot alike.

She's a real fucking bitch too.

[chuckles]

So where is she?

Your daughter.

She's up in Seattle.

With her mother.

It's a sad story.

Let's talk about why you're here.

You show up at 4:00 a.m., claiming what you claim.

They send some people over there to check it out because you refuse to go back.

I'm not going back to that house.

Your cousin's missing.

They find signs of a struggle.

So, Annie, let me ask you this.

What would any cop in the world begin to suspect here?

Why are you talking to me, exactly?

You came here looking for help.

Yeah.

Well, I don't need your help.

So you're just gonna take off?

Better not leave town.

' [sighs]

[door opens]

I'm gonna stick around, but it's not because of you.

It's because I want to find out what happened to Nicole and Liz.

Okay. Okay.

Here's another reason to stick around.

She's upstairs.
