She should mind her own business.

She was just asking.

Listen, son:

you have to let bygones be bygones.

You have to forget them.



You'll catch cold.

Put that on.

Can't you see I'm sleeping?

Come on, get up.


Come on!

Don't overdo it.

But I'm sleeping.

Don't get on my nerves! Keep still!

Put it on.


Should I get up now?

It's still early. Go back to sleep.

And what are you doing?

Nothing. Go back to sleep.

Uncle Adem?

What are you doing here?

Where's Dad?

Go to the shed.

Get the gasoline can.

Where's Dad?

- What?

Where's Dad?

Why are you up already?

Where are you going?

Into town with Uncle Adem.

We have to do something.

For the wedding.

I'll come with you.

You don't need to.

We're not working today.

I'll come with you.

- No, Nori. I said you're not coming.

Either you tell him "no" firmly

or you take him along.

This one thing and then another...

Or just leave it. You're spoiling him.

Like you spoilt your wife,

until she left you.

Yes, yes.

- What?

I said yes, yes!

I'm just saying.

He's a kid.

He's got to know his limits.


Come on!

Slowly, slowly!


Nori, you can't... Nori, try to understand!

You can't come.

Pull yourself together. Go on!

Nori, please understand...

Nori, listen to your father!

Nori, let go!

I told you you can't come with me.

You just can't.


That's enough! Now clear off!

You little brat...

Come on, young man. You can go home.

Look what your uncle's got for you.

I went back especially to get it.


Give it to me.

Pass me two nails.

Deutschmarks? Dollars?

2,000 Deutschmarks, huh?

- Yeah.

All right.

You little asshole. Scram! Do you hear?

What the f*ck?

Who do think you're hitting?

Who do think you're hitting?
