The other tourist, him gone.

But him still there.

He is American. He teaches

me to talk like an American.

He says I can be an American, too.

Him name John.

What state do you live in?


There are two.

Well, one's the capitol and,

the other one's just a place.

Which one's yours?

Just the place.

She not coming back, is she?

I don't know.

When I was your age,

I used to play a game called

"Life is not fair."

You know why they called it that?

'Cause life is not fair. It sucks.

But you got to play.

I don't know. Maybe

she wants to come back.

But she can't.

Maybe she's dead.

What'd you say?

Hope she is.

Hey, stranger. Welcome back.

- And who's this now?

- That's my son.

- That's not your son.

- That's my other son.

Are you okay?

Sure, sure, just busy, busy, busy.

Did I leave a shirt here?

A blue one?



Well, let me go wash up quick.

You guys can say hello.

So, uh, visiting your dad?

Hey. Is it okay if we stay tonight?

Why didn't you tell me about him?

I'm not gonna catch

him going through my

underwear drawers

or something, am I?


Can I get you to go out

for a little bit?

Don't get lost.


May I take your order?

Do you have cheap burgers?

Change your whole life

if you're ready, sir.

The United States army is hiring.

Yes, you sir.

Hell yeah!

Make way!

You got a minut

for your future, son?

How old are you?


you're a little bit too young,

but you come back in a year,

you understand?

You come back.

We'll be ready for you.

Have yourself a good day.

It'll change your whole life

if you're ready, sir.

Hop on.

This used to be my neighborhood,

you know? I used to live here.

People used to live here.

Real people, I thought.

Everybody turned into ghosts.

It was like I didn't exist anymore.
