I'm looking for here,

so let me give you a hand.

You are gonna tell me exactly

where Charlie Wright is,

and you simply need the

resources to pick him up.

It is more complex than that.

Best and worst case scenario.

Best case, he's here in the

United States in one of the

vacation homes. He

shows up, we get him.


We estimate he's got between

$1 to 2 billion left.

He could conceivable

take that money...

and stay above the treaties.

English, Andrew, English.

In this economy, he could buy

his way out of extradition out

of any number of countries.

He could live a life of luxury,

and if he's made that choice,

we can't touch him.

Oh, no.


You're gonna touch him.

You're gonna find that money,

and you're gonna bring

Charlie Wright to me.

But most important, you're not

gonna make me look stupid.

Do you understand?

Listen, I'll stay.

No, man, you go

on your vacation.

(back slap)

I got this.

(knocking on door)

(Jorge Garza) That's him.

(Mariel Garza) Jorge.

Um, excuse me.

Wait for me outside.

What's up?

My sister's here, and

she's worried sick.

Marco didn't come

home last night.

She's been trying and trying,

but he doesn't answer.

You have to go find him.

Just-- just stay with her.


Are you okay, my love?

Yeah. Just stay with her.


(knock on door)

Come in.

(Gabriel Garza) We've got them.


The numbers.

If it's not enough...

Did you count everything?


Are we close?

Gabby, you remember

what Papa used to say...

especially after he

had a few drinks.

He used to say, Jorito...

you're not a natural-born

leader, Jorito.

You are going to destroy

everything I built.

Like that, with that

crooked finger, like this.

Jorito, you're gonna

destroy this family...

if you're not careful.

You remember that?
