sounds much worse than it is.

- A few days?

- Yeah.

Mr. Judson?

Hey, man?


You look a little lost.

No, I'm fine.

Sure about that?

Kind of looking

for this lawyer's office.

Well, Mr. John Petrie,

it's just around

the corner there.

Great, thank you.

If you want my advice,

which you do,

you'll turn around and get

your sorry ass back on that train.

Why would I do that?

Listen to him, okay?

Nobody wants you here.

Everything's been fine here

for 17 years.

You had no right coming back

and digging up the past!

Listen, I don't know

what you're talking about.


Let him go, Mack.

Just so we're clear,

you don't belong in this town.


See you around.

So, I'm glad you were able

to come up here so quickly.

The sooner we get

the ball rolling,

the sooner both of us can be

on our way to the bank.


Your mother was okay

with you coming up here?

Well, it's not like she really has

any say in what I do.

Mr. Judson, I've still got

a few questions.

Ah, here we are.

Just look at it.


You have the house over here,

barn out back.

Property stretches

far into the woods over there

covering approximately

125 acres.

- Mr. Judson...

- I already have a developer lined up

who's been waiting years

to get a hold of the property.

So, I was able to negotiate

a great price...

pending your approval.

Wait, can you just...

hold on a second.

Yeah, what is it?

Who is Benjamin Conroy?

I'm sorry, I just...

I just thought you knew.


You should really talk

to your mother about this.

Trust me, it's not my place.

Look, I tried...

she wouldn't tell me.

More reason for me

not to get involved.

Please, I'm just trying

to figure out why I'm here.

Because you're next of kin

to the Conroy family.

Next of kin?
