It goes like this, little by little,

and in the end you get used to it.

How about you?

Staying afloat, which is no small feat.

And you?

- What are you having?

- A beer.

What can you do? Even if you get rid

of the politicians, nothing will change.

- Olives or chips?

- Olives.

The problem in this country is that

the banker is as corrupt as the worker.

That's the problem.

- Here you go.

- I guess so.

- How is your girl doing?

- Not too well, to be honest.

Is she having surgery again or

will she go back to chemo?

Yes, she will have chemo but...

No shit!

I'm so sorry, Luis.

Is there anything I can do for you?

I know Marisol, thanks a lot.


I'd like to talk to you in private.

Yes, sure.

I'd like to buy Alicia something

she wants, but you know my situation.

How much money would it take?


I can work for free here

as long as you want.

Damn Luis, that's a lot of money.

I'm up to the limit.

Of course.

I can't lend you so much money because,

for starters, I don't have it.

I know. I shouldn't have left you

in a predicament.

I don't know what to do.

You could look for a job where

you can get paid in advance.

But things are difficult.

No. Thanks.

What do you want to buy to Alicia

that is so expensive?

- It's a dress from a cartoon.

- Like a disguise?

No, it's a dress by a famous designer.

That's why it's so pricey. There's only one.

The only thing Alicia wants

is you to be close to her.

What matters is to be together.

The dress, the money, that's trivial.


I'm out of job but I'm waiting for

the result of some interviews.

The ad said that no collateral was needed.

Right, but I want to know

if it's possible.

I don't have collateral,

but I can pay the interest.

I know it's not a good time, but

I need the money. It's important to me.
