[My name's Frankie.]

[Frankie Delano.

And l'm a professional watcher.]

[That's what l do. l try to stay

in the shadows and watch.]

[The man who employs me is Angelo.]

[Angelo Allieghieri, who is

considered a generous man..]

[..by some

and a very bad man by others.]

[But good or bad, he is a father

first and foremost and has,..]

[..for years, had me watch

his daughter who, by the way,..]

[..doesn't even know

she's his daughter,..]

[..which really complicates things.]

[ln the last few months,

Angelo has been having me..]

[..film messages to his daughter.

lt's kinda like he's gettin'..]

[..his life in order,

which kinda makes me nervous,..]

[..like he knows something

l don't.]

Hey, Frankie?

You want me to say..

..something for you? You know,

put in a good word or something?

Please, Angelo, it's gonna

embarrass me, okay?

Come on!

You embarrass too easy.

Frankie, if she ever leaves

that sorry excuse of a husband.

You can't keep doing what you

are doin' for me. Understand?

Now, Frankie, watch out.

For what?

Watch out for the one..

..who feels pain..

..and wants you to know it.

All right.

Turn it on.

You know,

after so many years,..

..it's become like

a pool of memories to me,..

..never knowing

if those memories are real,..

..or if they're simply

what l want to remember.

Because all l have left

to join me to that world is her.

[See, that's what Angelo

had always said..]

[..that she was all he had left.

But that wasn't exactly true..]

[..because, even though l never

made a big deal out of it,..]

[..he also had me. See,

l pretty much loved Angelo..]

[..like you would your own father.]

Come on.

Before we lose 'em.

[So it was hard for me, too,

having to stay invisible..]

[..as her world fell apart,

after she'd given in..]

[..to that husband

and sent their little son off..]

[..to some distant

boarding school.]

l see him! ln the plane!

Rawley! Rawley!

lt wasn't my idea!

l didn't mean to send you away,

baby. Oh, l love you!

Jennifer! Jesus! God, what

are you doing? Get back in the car!

Look at him.

He's driving crazy.

A willow in the wind.

- Get back in the car!

- l just want to see his face!

Jennifer, for goodness' sake,

l'm shutting the sun --

Get back!

Just get back in!

Bloody hell!

l feel her sadness.

l mean, sending away..

..her only child.

l don't understand that.

But then, l do.

Jennifer, for God's sake,

what exactly is the trauma here?

Our little soldier is going off to

military school. lt'll make him a man.

- He's seven! - And you're

acting about the same age.

Have you ever considered,

lightening your hair?

- What?

- Lightening your hair.

Well, l thought maybe it'd,

you know, brighten your mood.

You know, this can be

corrected, Angelo, seriously,..

..it would be my pleasure.

- You can't. You know that.

- l understand.

- That's right. Keep the distance.

The distance.

We send our son off to military

school where he can be surrounded..

..by nothing but boys. You fire

the gardener. The place is a mess.

The furniture is in storage,

we can't even afford to get it out..

..because you invested

in some other mining stock..

..or something or other. We don't

even have a home! Brilliant!

- Where's my FedEx package, or did

you misplace it? - lt's there. - Oh!

How can you be so blas?

Don't you miss Rawley?

You know, you really have

to get a grip on this.

A grip on what?


What more could you want?

- You keep asking me that.

- Okay, okay, fine.

- So go out and get a job.

- Well, l had a job, remember?

But you said a mother's place
