Are you okay?


Dad, I can hear you.


What the hell is going on, Dad?


This is the La Leano Farm, right?

- Seor Ambrose?

- Yes.

Come in. Let him through!

Come on, we're here, boy.

Get you some fresh air here.



My, you look the same.

Changed a little bit, here and there.

It's so good to see you.

- Good, good, good, good.

- Hey.

So, where is he?

Yeah, here he is, right here.

- Where's your staff?

- I'm by myself.

You drove here...

I told you he was a little crazy.

Look how gorgeous you are.

Hey, how is Eunice?

- She's good. Good.

- Yeah?

She's all grown up like you, Payo.

Payo, it's been years

since anybody called me like that.

You know, they call me "Mr. Calayo" now.


- You're hungry?

- Yeah.

You remember

what my father hated the most?

Yeah. Mariachis.

Well, yeah, that, too.

But no, no, no.

You know, sending his animals

to the slaughterhouse,

and the way they were treated over there.

- Yeah.

- Yeah, well...

We finally built our own.

We can kill 1,000 hogs

in an eight-hour shift,

and we can manage two shifts a day.

So, we're very happy about that.

We're the only facility

that has a certificate to export.

These ones, for example.

These ones are going to China.

Are you okay?

Man, I'm sorry. What am I thinking?

You must be starving. Let's...

Why don't we go back to the ranch,

get you something to eat?

To tell you the truth,

I'd rather have something to drink.

Okay, we can manage that.

- All right.

- Let's go. get it to the house

to get it slaughtered, you know?

Boy, I'll never forget that. I can't...

It's always the same.

You were hugging them...

That's so sweet.

I became a drunk because of it.

Cheers to that.

My dad was the same.

I mean, not a drunk. He... No, no.
