l should've done it the first day.

How could you?

You're crazy.

We've hardly any money.

You should've seen him.

''Carlos, you're crazy!''.

lnto the basket!

You're a clown!

Any chocolate?

We'll have to leave,

like always.

We won't find another house.

We kick down a door,

and we've got a house.

Not like this one.

We needn't leave.

No one'll be in the bar for weeks.

And when they find him?

Who's seen my face?

A few hookers.

Businessmen who've never been there?


But we must be careful.

Like always.

Come here.


Dani, come here.

Rafa, take him.

Leire, l'm Blanca.

Look at me, look at me.

Look at me!

Let's go inside.

The little boy's all right.

Come on.

-l'm going to kill her.



The restorer's daughter.

But she was a child.

-When did you see her?

-She's grown up.

And she knows me.

So long, love.

How did it go?

-Where is she?

-Upstairs, in the garnet room.

Why bring her here?

There were problems.

The old woman she lived with

split her skull.

By accident?


And it's better that way.

lt looks as if the girl ran away.

lt's still early.

Later l'll take her

to the railway line.

Some trains will be passing then.

There've been accidents there,

but you could be seen.

There's never anyone there.

Why not put her in a wagon

and send her far away?

Try and say something

even more stupid.

''Why not put her in a wagon?''.

And why not put your l.D.

in her hand, love?

She's harmless.

l don't think she knows anything.

Why was that open?

She isn't what she seems.

She remembers,

and she knows me.

l'll do what l didn't do that day.

-What's wrong?


This is the first day in ages

we haven't argued.

How nice, my love.

You should kidnap people more often.

lt's so cold upstairs.
