You let me know

where you are, et cetera.

That's one of our house rules.

In here, Thomas.

I hope you'll like it here, Thomas.

If you need anything,

just let me know. OK?


Will you be OK?

Will you?


- Do...

- Yes?





Are you dumb, or what?.


What's that in your face?

Someone hit you?

- It's a birthmark.

- Really?


It looks like a beard.

- A beard on half his face?

- It's a birthmark!





I'll do anything.

Anything, Lillian!

I understand if you hate me.

I get so damned mean!

I'm sorry.



Wait, Roger!.

- Have you seen Daniel?

- No. He's supposed to come next week.

You aren't going to lose touch

with each other.

But children from troubled homes

are kept separate -

- until we find out

how things have been.

We've been just fine.

I'll kill you, you bastard!

Hey, Steve!

Excuse me.

Take it easy, Steve!

Calm down!

Let go of me!

Can I borrow 100 kroner?.


Fine. Now you owe me fifty

and I owe you fifty. So we're even.

- Let go!

- Listen to me!

- Kim!

- Have you lost your mind?


- Want to go outside?

- No.

No, it's too cold outside.

It's 25 degrees Celsius out there!


Who the hell do you think you are?

Now you owe me a hundred.



Thomas just got here yesterday.

But you've settled in

fairly well, haven't you?

This is temporary. Until they

figure out a permanent solution.

Terje came today.

Terje, this is Thomas.

Many find lifelong friends here.

Want to watch

the football game together tomorrow?

We can make waffles

and argue about which team is best.



Maybe you aren't

such a big football fan?

You neither?.

OK... At least you have

something in common.
