See that dog?

I'll waste you!

Cut it out!

Cut it out now!

Give it a rest, Juan!

Come on.

No way.

Why d'you bring your dog?

He came to see me.

No, I came to take her away.

I'm not going with you, ok!

Have you no shame?

People are filming you!

Quit filming us! Piss off!

Stand aside!

Move along now!

What's going on?

- Papers!

- Got none.

Come with us then.

What's up, vulture?

Sh*t, Mum!

What's wrong, honey?

Someone doesn't smell very sweet...


I want a dog.

Pass the talc, please.

Did you hear me?

Yes, you speak loud enough.

I want a dog.

I thought you didn't like pets.

Not all dogs are pets.

What are you talking about?

Please, Mum, get me a dog.

We'll see.

We have to be up early.

No, let's cancel.

Stop it. We leave at 8.

But it's the holidays.

Stop it.

If I press,

will something come out?

- See anything?

- No.

And now?

Still nothing.

And now?

Have you sensed a change

in low light?


Everyone has problems in low light.

That's true.

I told you

about retinitis pigmentosa...

How your field of view will shrink

and you'll lose night vision.

Before the circle closes.


It can happen very young.

I'm thirteen.

I know.


Listen to me.

Ava, come on...


you won't see well in low light.

At night,

when a place is poorly lit, say.

You'll lose your sight soon.

Look at me, please.

- We get your mum?

- No!

Ava, I have to.

I'm sorry.


Can you come in, please?

What's wrong?

Have a seat.

Stop, Mum. It's embarrassing.

I'm sorry.

I wish he was dead.


He ruined our summer.

My little birdie...


We'll have a crash.

We'll have a great summer, ok?

We have two weeks. That's good.

They won't spoil our summer.

Screw them!


Pull slowly on the rope

to come to the stop zone

and face the wind there.

Everyone got that?

Place the yachts facing the wind,

feed the rope in the pulleys

and then we can get started.

Let's go!


Go on, move!

Ava, don't forget your goggles.

Facing the wind, I said!

By the way,

obey Mathias.

He's helping with the beginners.

Careful, he's not much fun.

- The Nazgls.

- What?

They're freaky, huh? They're new.

A new town council.

- What?

- Find the point on the map.

It's black like those horses.

- I don't get it.

- You're in hell.

It's sunny, people seem happy,

but, believe me,

civilization's about to end.

Read the papers, look around.

Nothing but black.

Here she is!

Meet Tt!

Hello, Tt.

This is Ava, my other daughter.

Hi there, Ava.

How was the sand-yachting?

I dunno.

I'll go for a dip.

Coming in, Maud?

Do what you want.

Come with us. It's warm.


- Sir...

- What?


Here, Lupo, water.

Good night, Lupo.

August 10th.

I took his dog.

He didn't see me, of course.

I've called him Lupo.

He looks like a wolf.

Hiya, it's me.


Mum, what're you doing?

What're you doing?

Remember when you were little?


You'd come to my room at night.

You'd put your little feet

between my thighs.

It was so cute.

Get out now.

Get out of my bed!

Don't you want to talk?

You never talk to me.


Are you dating that guy?

I don't know.

What do you think?

He's a gigolo.

Why d'you say that?

He's way younger than you.


Thanks a lot!

Can I have a sleeping pill?

Are you crazy?

I have nightmares.

They're back?

They've never stopped.

Don't you have any?

I never remember my dreams.

I fall asleep, then I wake up.

That's it.

End of ride.


You're lucky.

I'm sorry.

Go back to bed.

You're right.

Things'll be better tomorrow.
