Maybe a friend,

or your boss perhaps?

I don't know, I'm just a worker

You already said that!

Come on, Benny

We're going in circles.

Do you think I'm a fool?

You really don't know anything?

No, sir

- You don't know anyone?

- No, sir. I swear.

Okay. Thanks.

Hold him down.

Wait, what?


I beg you!

Please don't!

That's not what my friend said!

Are you calling him a liar!?

- You're the liar!

- No sir, please don't!

- Maybe he's telling the truth!

- Do your job!

- Tell me

- Sir, I don't know anything!

- Are you a liar?

- Sir

- Benny!

- No! Stop!

One. Two

Where is the bus?


Why was I partnered up

with a lunatic captain?

Not just a high-ranking officer,

but a lunatic?

What am I going to do?

Can I even report him?

I can't go against a captain.

What will I do?

I'm a policeman.

I'm a policeman.

I can't hurt a fellow citizen.

I should uphold the law in my country.

I'm a policeman!

That's right.

I have my principles,

I should wear my uniform.

I do my duties responsibly.

Did we do our duty?

Did we get the information we need?

Do we have a problem with that?

No? Then no.


The engine was left running.

And it looks like they ran out of gas.

Someone might hear us.

Just stay here. I can handle myself.

Stay put.

I'll come back.

I saw this near the trees.

Is there a wallet

or an ID in the pocket?


I haven't heard of any rebels

or any terrorists in the area

This town is too quiet.

There is no plate number, no ID,

no footprints, no witnesses.

Where do we start

when all we have is nothing?

Everything starts from nothing.




Where did you find this?

Just beyond the border

Didn't I tell you

not to go near that place?

I just happened to pass by

- I heard something, and

- Pass by?

How many times have I told you?
