Daniel, do what Sarah said or you might have to do it at lunch time.

But I'm not gonna know it.

Then why work then?

Why choose not to do your work like everyone else you leave behind?

That's what happens.

All right, so why don't you just give the ball?

The guys are coming in soon, we can start Lingo.

So can I just have the ball?

Can I get it back?

Why?

Because it's mine.

No, it's not, it's the school's.

– Pass it back here, Tupac. – What?

Pass it back here.

Who wants, anyone?

Pass it back here.

Why?

I'm gonna stab you with these fucking pencils.

Hey, Daniel.

He won't give me my pencil back.

– Your pencil? – Yeah.

Can he just borrow it?

No.

All right, that's the fourth time I've spoken to you today.

Let's go to the library, wait for us. We're going there in five minutes.

Hurry up, Daniel.


– Come, do you want some? – Come here.

It's driving me mad.

Dan, do you remember shooting me in the face?

Get out of my way. Get out of my way. Get out of my way.

Get out of my way.

I don't getting ammo.

– Daniel! – I don't getting ammo.

– I don't getting ammo. – Daniel!

Daniel!

What?

Come watch us.


What?

Where have you been?

Nowhere.

Your teacher came here today, said you wasn't at school.

How many times I got to tell you?

Okay.

Yeah, well, I'm gonna tell your father on you.

You gotta get a stick off Linden for me.

You okay, boy? Look, here come a real bad boy.

Want anything?

Nothing.

What, you can't come?

I just stand and paint here, try to make me money for ourselves.

What you want?

My mama want a stick.

Well, she's lucky, I only got one left.

Only one left.

Yeah.

Someone said you're fucking up at school.

Said you stabbed Tupac with a pencil or something.

Yeah, don't fuck around me, boy.

He's trying to be bad, all boxing like his old father would.

Hey, yeah, that's right, until we met them boys.

Yeah.

– Boxing matches? – It must have been.

Hey, hey, Daniel. Daniel.

Who you mad on?

No one.

Tanitia, eh?

Tanitia, eh?

Yeah.

Tanitia? What, you scooping her yet or what?


Say hello to your Aunt Cindy there.

Where's Nana?

She's in the room in there, laying down.

Come tell her to come out here and see her sister.

Nana.

Aunt want you out there.

Well, she won't come out.

Well, take Aunt Cindy for a walk around the mission.

Show her where she used to walk around when she was little.

Go on, take her.


Daniel, what's her name?

Aunt Cindy.

Where she's been?

Sydney.

Who took you away?

It was a long time ago that they took people away from here.

How come they took you away?

So...


Where the fuck you going?

Well, we going out of here, boy, we going fishing. What you doing?

What do you want to do? Come fishing or what?

Are you coming, you come for a ride? Go on, jump in.


Daniel, you little fucking shit.

See, I'm trying to catch a fish here.

Daniel, please go back that way. Fuck off, now, man.

I mean it, cunt. I fucking...

Jesus, man.

No fucking fishing out here, mate.

I ain't fucking catching anything.

I said move now!

No, please, Daniel.

Jesus, fucking stubborn mate, look.


And then...

What, your Aunt Cindy just came home last night, did she?

What, she's been gone a long time, too, eh?

My old aunt got taken away when she was little.

Some fellas came about and took her away in a bus, said they was taking her to a dentist.

She's been gone for 50 years.

That's a long trip to the dentist, don't you reckon?

You know what?

You know what, Daniel? I always dance around down here, boy.

I always did, probably down here.

Dance round here all night around the fire and...

I used to have a good time down here, you know.

Then we just dropped our lingo home.

Until our old managers come down, try to stop him and put him in jail.

Used to tell them to stop doing it all the time.

But then, they... Do you know the lingo?

They teach you the lingo at school?

Yeah, but I don't want it. Forget it, man.

The lingo that I know is the only one mom and dad learned me.

You know what a kangaroo is? You know what they call a kangaroo?

They call it banda.

What about a fish? You know what a fish is? A guya.

Bushtracker, see?

I don't know much about bushtracker in lingo words.

That's about it.


Fourth way down.

All right, Dan, hey, boy. You back on to something, huh?


Hey, fucking heavy shit this time, eh?

I'm trying to see...

Hey, you now look more fucking shit to me.

Bring it around here, give me a round.

I'm not used to this shit, it's that one rap.

You're always wasting it. This costs money, you know.

It's fucked up.

I'm not used to that shit, see? You wasting it.

Oh, that's fucking heavy shit.

That's my painting there. Done it when I was in jail.

What the fuck, man?

Who the fuck just said that's your totem?

I just know it here. I just know it in me.

Hey, you don't fucking know.

Yeah. What's your fucking totem, bro?

Fucking emu, bro.

Emu?

Who the fuck taught you that?

What would Nana know?

– Now, what would she know? – Everything, cuz.

How would she know more than me? Who told her that, then?

Jesus? What the...?

Who the fuck...? Jesus who?

No, Jesus, everybody knows Jesus.
