- Make money? That's all right then.

But what does all that mean?

It means, um, "I'm all right. I'm fine.

I'm OK, I'm OK."

The road is dark. Hidden danger.

Loss makes you careless. A wanderer.

A hanged man. The world turned upside down.

A sacrifice.

A sacrifice?

- Bea? Lucy?!


Welcome to my house.

These are my brothers - all 40 of them.

Hideous kinky!

Hideous kinky!


Are you pleased to see me?

Hello, darling! Where did you spring from?


They work you like animals.

It's not England, Julia.


Their father. He is a bad man?


- Not bad. Just kind of forgetful.

- So he's a hippy?

Not exactly.

He's a writer and a poet.

- He's quite famous.

- But you left him.

Rather than share him, yes, I did.

- He has other wives?

- Not wives, exactly.

I need things for myself, Bilal,

and I need things for them.


Things. A different life

- different from before.

Lucy's made up a song.

Do you want to hear it?

- Maybe tomorrow. - Or maybe

for money. - Oh, good. Very good.

But I know how to make money.

That is how we make money!

Look what we can do.

- Ow!

- Look what she can do.

- Whose is the best somersault?

- Mind, Bea! - OK!

Watch me, Bilal.

- Yes, but...

- Anyone could do that.


- You ready?

- Yeah.

Ow! Ow! Ow!

- OK, I know I need to work on it a little bit.

- Yeah.

- Bilal? - What? - If you said

something, would it always be the truth?

What?! Yes, always.

- And if you promised to do something, would you always do it?

- Of course.


Are you my daddy now?

Bilal is going to sing us a song.

- Am I? - But in the English way.

- You have to go in the wardrobe.

- You can't stop till we tell you.

- Yeah, go on!

- Please! - Go on. - That

will be so nice. - OK.

- Please! I love songs.

- OK.
