Mr. Director,

this is Agent Vivian Delay.

For the last ten years,

the CentraI Intelligence Agency

- has been after Wolfgang Braun.

- The Wolf.

As you know, we have no positive

identification on what the Wolf looks like.

What we do know is

he's a former German nationaI

who sells atomic material

to terrorists all over the world.

Intelligence confirms that

a transaction is to take place

next week in Belgrade.

The Wolf's number one man,

the Albino,

will be selling a dirty bomb

to Syrian buyers.

We've already dispatched

a team to eliminate the buyers,

secure the bomb,

and apprehend the Albino.

How may I be of service, sir?

Your target is the Wolf.

We have reason to believe

he'll be present.

Find him and eliminate him.

Yes, sir.

Let them get the Albino,

you get the Wolf.

Oh, sir, if I may,

who is our agent on the ground?

Ethan Renner.

He's a lifer.

He'll get the job done.

The buyers have been neutralized.

Well done, Ethan. Well done.

Going down.

Maid service.

I have your extra towels.

This cold is killing me.


Where are you?

- You left a big mess.

- Yeah, well...

...I'm thinking about calling in sick.

Come on, you haven't had

a sick day in 32 years.

- Here's the scanner.

- Thank you, Yasmin.

Uh... be sure to stock my bedroom with those

little shampoo bottles, I like them.

All teams in position.

Excuse me.

Nice work in there, my man.

Oh... it's Zooey's birthday.

I need a second to make a call.

Cell phones aren't secure, Ethan.

Yeah, well, it's my daughter.

You've got a payphone outside,

you've got five minutes.

Let's see the scan.

Hey, hey, listen I'm trying to

make a phone call over there and

I don't have any change so

if I could borrow some out of this money.

I can come back and I can pay you back.

Come on, come on.

Son of a b*tch.

All right, this is worth a lot.

I take some of this.

I'm coming back for that.

Excuse me.

Have we met before?

You would remember me, no?


Yasmin's been compromised.

We need to move now, AxeI!

No one moves on the Albino

untiI we have cleared what's in the box.

Come on.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

We met in Karachi last ApriI exactly.

But then you were working

as a cocktaiI waitress

if I remember it correctly?

- Oh, sh*t.

- We got confirmation.

That's a dirty bomb.




- Hi sweetie, it's your father.

You didn't forget, which

means you probably love me.

Of course I do, Zooey.

You can prove it by singing me

"Happy Birthday," loudly.

Well, I could sweetheart,

but, uh, I'm at work.

You can leave a message

after the beep.

What the f...?

All right.

Go, go! Get in position!

Cover me!

Cover Ethan now!

We're going in!

We're going in!

Cover Ethan! Cover Ethan!

All right, that's enough.

Put it down.

Put it down.


Now slide it over here.

You're not going to kill me, are you?

Not unless I have to, all right?

But I'm not running

after you anymore, f***er.


I see you've read the report.

- It's called Glioblastoma.

- Yeah.

It's a type of brain cancer

and it's spread to your lungs.

It doesn't say

how much time I have left.

Three months, possibly five.


So, no Christmas this year, huh?

I'm afraid not.

I suggest you put your affairs in order.

Thank you, doctor.

Well done securing the bomb, Ethan.

But now that you're no longer operationaI,

we need to terminate our relationship.

We've wired your pension into your account.

The CIA thanks you

for your service.



What the...?

- What are you doing in my place?

- You do not speak French?

No, I'm American. I...

- I live here.

- Which floor?

No, I mean, I live here.

You? You are the owner?

I'm so happy to finally meet you.

Bonjour, mon ami.

This is my wife, Teresa.

My son Abbate.

My daughter Sumia is in the kitchen,

she's pregnant.

These are my cousins.

They are visiting us from Mali.

untiI they go to stay with

my brother in Saint-Denis.

- Do you know Saint Denis?

- No, I don't know Saint Denis.

- What are you doing in my apartment?

- We were without a home.

We were seeking shelter.

You are lucky we're here.

- Bad spirit fill empty spaces.

- Yeah, but now I'm back.

And it is good that you are finally back.

My name is Jules.


Where's all my stuff?

I also started to paint the room.

My wife think it is best to have

a cheerfuI color.

Is yellow good for you? I'm happy to do

the work. It's not a problem, Ethan.

Actually, Jules,

there is a problem.

That's months from now.

Then I guess I need to throw

them out myself.

No, no, no, hey, ho.

I'll go to...

Hey! I'll go to jaiI?

All right, what exactly then

am I supposed to do?

Did you really just say that to me?

Ethan, Ethan!

I need to talk to your dad.


Please give me a minute

to finish my call.

- I'm sorry, Ethan.

- Let's talk in private, Jules, in my room.

I can assure you, we have not

touched any of your things.

I'm not saying you did,

but I think it's time you and I

got to know each other

just a little better.

'Cause you're notjust crashing

at some guy's house.

No problem, Ethan.

We will pack and leave now.

Where are you gonna go

with a pregnant kid?

I don't know, but we'll

leave without packing.

Sit down.

You don't have to go yet,

Jules, at least...

...not untiI your daughter

has her baby.

But you stay under my rules.

- I am also a believer in rules.
