I'm a musician.


Well, sort of.

At a place called Ellington.

- Yes

- No, no. I played there last weekend.

Ellington place with many statues in front of him, is not it?

Yes, right.

But I remember the old place was already gone.

Do you know who the President of the United States today?

What kind of question is this?

I am being curious.

Ronald Reagan.

Did we meet before?


Here. Last week.

So, how is your new job?

Do not get me wrong, I appreciate these cases

I just do not know how to tell it.

I remember being your assistant.

You miss Sydney?


I miss analysis.

On my patients, they do not like what I thought.

What do you think?

Do you want help? I'll help you now.

Things like this are not easy to deal with.

And how do you face a problem like this?

Pete ..

I'm here to help you.

I really appreciate it.

At least you're still alive to help me.


Mary is the most beautiful girl on campus,

he left for Sydney,

he undiscovered for years

Well, that's life.


So, how's Carol?

She was devastated.

Are you still not ...

You still do not dare mention his name?


Try to call his name, Peter.

Evie ..

Evie ...

You're hurt.

Only minor injuries.

It is okay.

What is that?

- What things interest you?

- What?

When it's not that you're messing with Evie?

Then what made you take off your attention from him?

I can not remember.

You'll remember it again.

I just need to sleep.

I want to close my eyes and fall asleep.

I started to hate others.

I do not want to be a madman.

It was absolutely horrible.


Am I boring you?

I'm listening.

You know, people were happy to ignore.

Like who?


- Who is that?

- Children my daughter.

Not his real name, but that's what I call him.

Sometimes I'm tired of calling him,

As if I was not apparent in his eyes.

But I can see you.

Sometimes I wonder what I'm doing here.

What do you mean?

You know what I mean.

Do you want to kill yourself?

I can not do it.


How did you get in here?

What you're with your parents?

You want in?

Come on.

I'm Dr. Bower. Call me Peter.

Please, sit. Up to want to sit where.

Good choice, more relaxed.

Did your parents gave you the letter?

Letters to read?

Identity Card Train Up For Students.

Elizabeth Valentine.

Beautiful name.

Hello, Elizabeth.

Can you talk?

You can read.

What did you write?

Do not be afraid it's just the sound of the train.

Wait! Wait! Wait

What are you doing?

It is nothing.

I'm looking for old files.

You know that stuff, is not it?

Forgive me.

No need to apologize.

- Did I wake you?

- No.

What you're drinking pilmu?

I slept all day.

I wanted to stop taking the pills.

Don't you remember what happened when you did not drink?

Forgive me.

Stop apologizing.


Next week anniversary of his death.


Memorial day is a day that does not need to be celebrated.

Why we moved here, Peter?

You know why.

So that we can continue our lives.

Damn !!

Come on.


How did you get in here?


What is wrong?


What do you see?


Elizabeth, try to talk, okay?

What is that?

What is that?

What is going on over there?



I told the truth, Pete.

I heard on this recording only the sound of the train

And the sound of you that speak for themselves.
