Oh, god.

I don't need you to do it

right now, I mean, really,

if you could come later,

it'd be fine.

I mean, I'm really,

really kinda stuck.

Listen, like I said,

it's just not a good day.

Like, any other day, man, I'd be

there for you in, like, a second.

Bro, like, you know,

you don't have any friends

or family there that

can help you out?

No, no, no, no, no.

There's not.

Yeah, I wish I could, man, but like

I said, it's just not a good day.



Can I help you?

It's Latang.


Are you serious?

How you doing?

Oh, my god.


No, it's not you!

It's not you.

Oh, my god!



Oh, my god.


- How are you doing?

- What are you here for?


Oh, my god.

Are you moving back here?

Tell me you're moving

back here, please.

I'm not.

- You're not?

- No, I'm...

I'm here for Nona's.

I'm just taking care of the affairs

and the house and everything.


I wasn't sure if you'd

be back for that or not.

I know, I know.

My family and everybody,

we're so sorry.

- That's very sweet...

- And you know in these times

how important it is,

the grieving process,

to have friends

and family around.

We would be here for you,

whatever you need.

- Yeah, okay, I appreciate that.

- All right?

- All right.

- Thank you.

I mean, what are we gonna do?

That's the question

we need to start asking ourselves

right now, what are we gonna do?

- What are we doing?

- Yeah.

I am...

I'm just still like...

Having such a hard time processing

this reality right now.

This is such a hard reality.

Do you feel like that

at all? Yeah?

Yeah, me too.

I'm kind of sensing it, yeah.

I was like, "who is this old guy

at my fucking doorstep.

Who is this old guy?"

And you said your name and I

was just like, "oh, my god!"
