- Let me handle it. He's cool.

That's him.

- Him? But he's Arab.

- No, he's not.

But I'm telling you.

He's Spanish. I saw his ID

when we did a line in a club.

They sneak over as kids.

After a while they become Spanish.

Gave you his life story, did he?

I don't want hassle.

What hassle?

He's in your line of work.

You fucking shithead.

Dude, they don't know us from shit.

I thought you knew him.

Yeah, but this is business.

You can look now.

OK, here it is.

We need a double bottom,

using part of the tank.

And you hide the stuff in there,

out of sight.

But the boat has to look brand new.

Is that a problem?

No, no problem at all.

What do you think, Nio?

OK. I need tools and materials,

and it will take time.

Two days?

Three or four.

Especially if we go around

in circles like that every day.

I told you.

He notices everything.

He can do it blindfolded.

He is the best, I'm telling you.

He's been at that workshop

for four years.

Plenty of yachts and rich guys,

yet they pay him jack shit.

Who said you could look around?

I'm here with Halil.

Didn't he explain what the job is?

I've never seen one like this.

Well, forget you ever saw it.

And forget the job.

Get out of here, both of you!



What's wrong?

Just take it easy.

What did you do?

I was just looking.

Well, you fucked it up.

Shut your fucking mouth.

Come here.

Is what Halil tells me true?

I don't know.

I didn't understand shit.

You crossed the Strait

just to get a stone from Africa?

So what? Was it yours?

I can give it back to you.

So that's why you're called Nio.

Because you like to play.

I don't like being bored.

Listen, if we come to an agreement,

you definitely won't be bored.

My name is Rachid.

Come on, let's go talk.
