of mother's farm

to see if they can help you.

Those Manubens'! They ruin

everything they touch in town.

Are you forgetting Pitorliua's mishap?

Goddamn it!

With you always reminding me?

You can't get it out of your head.

I'm sick of hearing it.

I'm leaving and that's it!

If you walk out that door

I'll kill all your birds.

Because I won't go up

to give them anything.

No water, no millet,

no seeds, nothing!

Just one dead bird,

and pay close attention, Florncia,

just one and you'll remember it

the rest of your life.

Get out!

I'm sorry. Don't take it like that.

I said get out!

Can't you see I love you

more than anything?

Come on,

don't make it harder for me.

There's a bundle in the wagon

with everything you might need.

I've got lots of work

and can't be there for you.

You'll have fun at grandma's.

Playing with Quirze and Nuria.

She's here visiting.

Nuria who?

Uncle Fonso's girl. He went to France.

Careful on the stairs, Andreu.

Go sit down.

Wait for me here.

I'll be right back.

Here, that's for grandma

to make herself a suit.

Be good at your new school

and study a lot.

So you don't end up

in some shitty factory.

It's enough for me to be in one.

I'll go see you every Sunday.

I can't more often,

it's many hours away.

Your father must leave,

but he loves us.

Don't forget that.

You have to be a man now and bear it.

What will you do in France?

I don't know.

Go see uncle Fonso and then we'll see.

Don't worry, I'll be back soon.

Then you'll come with me.

Father, does Pitorliua

from the cave really exist?

That's just silly!

Couldn't that be who killed

Culet and his father?

How can you be so grown up

and believe in ghosts?

And the screams factory workers hear

from the Baumes cave?

Nonsense! Don't try to learn so much
