Everyone down.

Down on the floor.

Down on the ground.

Just listen to me, and

no one will get hurt.

Lock the door.

Lock it.

No. Please do not! No.


Wake up.

Wake up, sleepy head.



Are you ok?

Yeah! I am fine.


I do not know.

It is just these past couple

days you just seem different.

I am ok.

Look! We are going

to make this work.

We are going to get on our feet.

We are going to get

out of this town.

We are never going to look back.


This whole county was Indians.

Just open land as far

as the eye could see.

Do you know how the

settlers took over?

I heard they won

it in a poker game.

I am serious here.


They had superior firepower.


More complicated than that.

They could not just go

in there guns blazing.

They were hopelessly


What they did was they pitted

the tribes against each other.

And they stirred up a

whole bloody Indian war.

After the dust settled and the

tribes had just about wiped...

Each other out,

those old generals.

Just waltzed in and

took it for themselves.

At least they got

to keep the casinos.

I am telling you. We have

been cursed ever since.


No. I am not cursed.

You are cursed.

Are you guys ready?


Are you ok?


Usually I am the jittery one.

All right!

We got this.

Get your game face on.

Everyone get down.

Get down on the floor.

Get down on the ground.

Just listen to me, and

no one will get hurt.

Just do as we say,

and you can get back.

To rob everybody else.

You got it.

Stay down.

Lock the door.

I got it.

What the f*ck was that?

It is ok.

You are going to be ok.

No one is going to get hurt.

Get your cell phone out now.

You got a cell phone.


What about you?

The purse.


How about you Granny?

Jesus Christ.

Hey! Hey! Hey!

What the f*ck are you

talking to her.

Get over there in the corner.

You. Too.

Hurry up!

Hey! Hurry up!

Now! Now.

Move, move, move.

Stop right there.




Go! Go!

All right here we go.

Right F, 32 dive.

No, listen up.

10, 43. Action.

Sam what is the point?

We are down by 14, man.

The game is over.

We are not going to lie down.

We are going to finish this.

Come on!

I am with you.

On one.


Come on!




You look good for a guy.

Who just got his ass kicked?



I just want to

remember you like this.

Just like the way.

You are right now.

Before you go off to

your big fancy college,

big fancy scholarship.

Your fans are going to be

screaming and all the girls.

I want to be with you, and

that is never going to change.



You look beautiful.

You are just saying it.


Come here.

I just want to be able

to take care of you.

Well! I can take care of myself.

No! I mean really

take care of you.

We used to have plans. You know.

I know.

Now all are going to happen.

Everything is going

to turn around.

It is just going to take a little

more time than we move on.

That is all.

Take off.


Do not be late for work.

I will not.

Look! Look! I get it. All right?

You want to work hard, make

an honest living. Do it...

The way dad did it.

However, let me tell you something,

in case you have not noticed,

That completely American dream?

That... That ship has sailed.

The world does not work

like that anymore.

You want to see me selling dope.

It is not about drugs.

It is about us.

It is family.

You are my little brother, and

I am trying to help you out.

I know you are in a

tight spot right now.

And you have it all figured out?
