Go and get some water.

Come on, dear! And bring some

Memo, get going, aren't you

Look, look...

Eh, why don't you go and get it?

- Ok.


- Ok, I'll go now.

No, my honey, no, my baby...

baby mine...

Where are you going?

What's up?

- Nothing much...

Leave that!

But you are going to show me?

- I will, once you come back.

You'll show me how to assemble

and dismantle it, all!

Come on, take care.

They are shelling like hell today.

Honey, come to me, honey!

- Come on, hold her for a minute.

Come on, sweetheart... Come on,

it's high time for you to go!

Take care, Memo!

Hey, boy...

- I'll get it to you!

What do you mean by that?

I'll pay for it.

What about the washing machine?

- I'll get that as well...

What about the spare part?

F*** it...

Good afternoon, how are you!

- Good afternoon!

U want to get out?

- Later.


- What is it?


- Let me go!

come from the trenches?

Tell him to come to Ahmo's.

They should introduce

the shifts... 24-48.

So that, when you come home...

you come home.

When I come home,

I have not time

to get the water warmed up

let alone use it all.

I mean it, trust me.

Leave the gun!

Look, there is Memo!

Where have you been, chap? What is up?

Listen! The guy with bread

will come now.

Here is a cigarette for you,

go and get us some bread, please

I want the gun!

- See Memo the merchant...

Come on, here are two for you,

I am left with one now...

Come on, get one loaf

for the two of us.

And what did your wife say?

Nothing, she told me to go to

the logistics... What did you play?

Come on, folks, go to the shelter.

They have started shelling again.

We have to eat!

Come on, you... why do you

always have to make trouble!

Don't get in!

Let me go!
