Mr. Hank Green, Global Investments




We can not touch the bonds.

They are the guarantee for the Cisco shares.

Remove everything from First National

The Delaware's again?

It returned. We must clean the Reynolds account...

If they investigated for money laundering.

Are you sure?

Anything by email.

Returns all on Monday.

I pay attention?

yes, yes.

-Do ticket? -Do not know if...

I'll send you the figures now.

And Green?

Win time, gives equal. Report you sick.

Business or pleasure?

I don't know. Only...


I don't feel comfortable...

Josh! Josh! Don't be a coward.

Do what I say and call me when you are done.

To my fellow-members of the Council.

July 18, 2016

We can ignore the truth that has been.

It can not be darkness...

or be blind when the gift of sight has had...

equal to that cannot be reversed have been born.

We are the only species with the ability of self-reflection.

The only species with the toxin of doubt in our genetic code.

Without doing justice to our gifts, we build...

We buy, we consume.

Wrap us in the illusion of material success.

Deceived and timamos to climb painfully...

towards the top of what we define as achievement.

Be superior to other men.

Office in the corner.

Who chupaste it?

I heard that it closed the Reynolds account.

How did you make that?

So good I am.

Don't forget us.

How could we forget them?

You know how I take my coffee.

Excuse me, want to see it in the room of partners.

Tell you that I now.

And tomorrow is his mother's birthday.

Buy something from me, Yes?

Of course.

There is a disease within us.

It rises as the bile that leaves a bitter taste in the throat.

It is in every one of you, sitting around the table.

We deny its existence until one day the body rebels against the mind...

and shouts:
"I'm fine".

Undoubtedly, they only think of the merger.

The dirty union of two equally sick institutions.

But it is impossible to ignore the truth.

Because only if we know what evil afflicts us we can find healing.

I'm not going to come back.

Do not try to find me.

Sincerely, Roland E. Pembroke.

Well, Mr. Lockhart...

What do you think?

It is obvious that the reason he lost.

The same think.

It goes on vacation to a spa two weeks and suffers a nervous breakdown.

And whom Devils going to the hot springs in the XXI century?

I hope that you understand the sensitivity of the information in this letter.

So it is true.

A merger like this we become...

in one of the largest financial services firms.

That will enrich all the present here.

Even to you.

We hear good things.

His work with Bill Reynolds was very successful.

Clear, the Securities Commission of bags will want full access to our accounts.

Any irregularities will be light.

Seriously believed that we don't know?

I do not know of what he speaks.

Do you think that there is some trick that we have not tried?

This is for beginners.

I ask you something, Mr. do Lockhart??

Ever have got a 30 cm black penis?

The prison, Mr. Lockhart.

It is in serious trouble.

If so, they would have already delivered me to the authorities.

So I guess that the Commission is going after someone of higher rank.

Maybe someone from the Council.

Or someone who is obviously unbalanced.

We want to go to Switzerland and bring back Mr. Pembroke.

You will see...

fusion can not carry out unless Mr. Pembroke authorizes...

certain legal issues.

I don't get as well with Mr. Pembroke as Morris.

That is joda.

Morris was a good salesman. Reliable.

That rest in peace.

But he had no vision.

Someone must be responsible.

Josh, I am again.

The Tokyo Stock Exchange closes in hour and a half.

Empty Banyon and purchase in Glenco.

I'll send you the details right now. And call me.

I don't like to leave messages like this.

Coming for the cure?

No, only visit.

Does it bother you?

Go ahead.

It is younger than most of my passengers.

It takes many people to the hospital?

To all of them.

Each week, pick up wealthy train...

and I take them to the mountain.

Only rich people?

It must be very expensive.

Well, the rich have problems of rich.

I'm happy with a simple life.

That's all? Don't have ambitions?

Can only take people to the mountain and back?

Most stays.


I guess they like to be there.


I don't frequent spas.

Work to live, like my father.

Children learn from their parents to be men. Right?

I don't know.

Not I grew up with my father.

How long are you going?

Only a few days. By business.

You do not look good.

I am fine. It is that I have not slept much.

You need to rest.

I always said your father to rest...

but he ignored me.

-He was weak. -Didn't you know it.

And whose fault is it?

Are you happy here?

Treat you well?

People come here to die. Why should I be happy?

They will get me a rise.

So when you return I can take you someplace better.

Close to the beach, or something as well.

You will not return.

Of course.

Another dancer?

It is not like the others.


He lives in a dream.

But it is dancing.

Because he doesn't know that he is dreaming.

What friendly.


The villagers have always had resentment of the mountain.


Old stories.

How old is this place?

Its foundation dates from the times of the barons.

For centuries, this land and its inhabitants...

belonged you to a family.

The Von Reichmerl.

What happened?

It is an interesting story.

Apparently, the last baron was so obsessed with the purity of their lineage...

It decided that only her sister was pure to be mother of his son.

When the Church forbade their marriage, he resigned to God.

I guess that it was well received.

And that you say it.

On their wedding night...

the villagers climbed...

They chased the baron and his spouse to the catacombs...

and he was forced to watch while they burned her alive.

Then they burned the whole place.

Go history.


But that was 200 years ago.

Many things have changed since then.

Maximum 20 minutes.

There is no hurry.


Can I help you?

I come to see a guest. Mr. Roland Pembroke.

Sorry, already ended up visiting hours.


I come from far away.

Could you make an exception?

There are no exceptions.

Can I speak with a Manager?

Sign here.


Thank you, Mr Lockhart.

I'll see what I can do.

Here there is no signal.

It is part of the treatment.

You will get used.

Do ten-letter word for "amnesty"?

I have no idea.


No, just nine.



Do you like puzzles?

No, in reality.

Does it matter to you?

Thank you.

I think that reception nurse explained...

that visiting hours ended at 3 o'clock.

Yes. But surely you know...

Mr. Pembroke is the director of a major financial institution.

Under the circumstances, he hoped to make one...



To help people who come here...

We must remain strong.

May I ask to what matter?

It is a business deal.
