Spread your fingers.

Arms up.

Well. Open your mouth.

Lift your leg up a little.

The other.



Martin Blanco.

- Age?

- 16.

- And from Colegio San Marco?

- Yes, of San Marco in Versalles.

- Your Teacher?

- Sebastian Armas.

Remember swimming teacher?

- Santiago?

- Santiago Suarez?

That is, I don't remember.

I have not fixed the test report

to consent.

- Good.

- Can you swim?


Tell your classmate

that he can come in.

ABSEN You're doing great,

but it can be a bit quieter.

And Gonzoalo, you do it very well.

Very good. You must be careful

how your leg out of the water.

Your kick is not quite right.

Well, let's go.

All to the water.

Go ahead, all the water.

Well, here we go.

Watch your head.

We don't have much time left.

Can I go to the toilet?

There's something in my eye.

- Yeah, go ahead.

- Thank you.

I check the list before they arrive

and after you have dressed.

If one is absent, ie truant.

Note that. I'll get the list tomorrow.

Remember that Blanco is not there,

for that I bring to the hospital.

Where was it?

In oogcentrum. You follow the Juan B.

It is 20 minutes drive away.

- Good. Goodbye.

- Take care.

Shall we?

Does it hurt?

It annoys a bit.

It is behind my eyelids.

- Would you call weary?

- I call my grandmother a while.

She does not answer.

There's nobody home.

Come on.

Do not worry, because you have nothing.

Probably shocked

because of that glass.

Maybe there was something, but have

we flushed it. Does it still hurt?

- No.

- Fortunately.

If it still bothers you,

come back tomorrow.


- I take you home. Where do you live?

- Can we go back to the club?

To the club?

Yes, I had been haunted by Juan Pablo

to sleep with him.

- Has he seen you left?

- No idea.

Do you think he is waiting for you?

No idea, I would sleep with him.


If his friend is not here, I bring him

home and I'll call you back.

Yeah, me too.

- He's not.

- Then bring you home.

I don't know if my grandma is there.

You live with your grandmother?

- And your parents?

- In General Roca.

Why do you say that your grandmother is not there?

If I'm going to stay, she sometimes

and to her sister who lives in San Justo.

And you have no house keys?

Yes, this mar sitting in Juan Pablo's backpack,

on my cell.

Well, we're going to your grandma

and there we'll see.

But don't worry,

I'll leave you alone.

Call your mobile

then take it to your friend.

Yes, but I think he is off.

We went straight from school to

pool, but I'll try a bit.


No, I get the voicemail.

Thank you.

What is it?


Thanks for bringing it, sir.

It's no trouble, Martin.

She's not there. I'll wait for her.

Do not worry.

No, come with me.

Do you know where Juan Pablo lives?

Yes, I think so.

We always take line 114.

- Is it far?

- No.

It is on the other side

Devoto of the square.

- I believe that it should be.

- I know something better.

We go to my house, eat something

and I'll bring you to your grandmother.

Try again.

There is none.

Give it.

- Sebastian, do you mind?

- I'm coming.

Go in and sit back.

Is that you, sir?

- Shall I make you a sandwich?

- Yes.

I was about your age.

A little older, 20, 21.

- May I go to the toilet?

- Yes, that sits next to the door.

I've already called the school,

but there is none.

All that stuff I forgot.

I hope that his grandmother is there...

otherwise I'm not so good

what to do.

No, I don't know how that goes.

He can not meet his fate.

I have a meeting. Call me later,

then we go eat three of us somewhere.

For the same money you make you terribly
