Someone recently

tried to harm my family,

and for someone to try

such a thing,

can only be the work

of a common thug.

A low life.

There's something to be said

for ambition.

But even ambition has to have

its boundaries.

Help me understand

something, Vaz.

Why is this problem of yours,

our problem?

My family is the most important

thing to me.

And I will protect them at all cost.

Vaz, we get that.

But to suggest...

that one of us is involved?


It's a bit disrespectful.

And frankly speaking,

this whole charade is

a bit tiresome.

Well, let me just

come out with it.

If I step on your toe,

I was really aiming

for your heart.

But if you step on my toe,

I will cut your

fucking heart out.

You know,

it's really not your night tonight.

Shut up,

and deal the cards.

Whatever Boris wants,

Boris gets.

Something's come up.

I've got to go.

Finish the fucking game.

I said I've got to go.

- Wait a minute.

You win the game,

you can have all of this.

But, if I beat you,

I will take your little lady

out over there and

I will show her

what a real man is like.

Boris, what

the f*ck are you doing?!

What the f*ck are you doing?!

Yeah, what the f*ck, Boris?

We're just fucking around, man.

Calm down, man. Shut the f*ck up!

Get him off! F*ck.

We're just fucking around, man.

Calm down.

Keep the money.

Don't let me see

your face here again.

F*ck you!

Vazgen's kid is here again.

Table in the back.

He doesn't know what he's

getting himself into.

It looks like a lot of trouble.

She does.

Get up, you fucking whore.

Hey, let her go, man.

- Sit down before I hurt you.

Boris, stop it!

- She's my wife, you idiot.

I don't give a f*ck!

So, you're a tough guy?

- I'm a tough guy, yeah.

I see, tough guy. Let's go.

- Let's go.


Let's go, tough guy!


Let's go.

- Let's go.

Let's go.

- Stop it.

Get your hands off me!

Here's we go, Miguel.

What the f*ck you doing, Boris?

Don't you know where you're at?

This is personal.

It has nothing to do with you.

Get him out of here. This shit

ain't gonna go down in my club.

Don't let him back in.

Michael, get back inside, now!

What the f*ck are you doing?

You know who this is?

Your father will have my head if

I let anything happen to you.

Hey! Hey!

What did you do?

- Natasha.

Michael, you need

to get out of here now.

Get him out of here. Now!

Let's go!

- Get him out of here!


Hey, babe, thanks.

So, your lawyer's here with

some papers for you to sign.

I'll be there in a minute.

I told you I had

a family thing today.

You're not suppose

to just show up unannounced.

I wouldn't be here

if it wasn't important.

These arrived today.

What is it?

Oh, I think you'll

want to see it.

What's with the theatrics?

Just tell me already.

Our friend can't seem

to control his problem.

These were taken

at one of our clubs.

The more photos in,

the less clothing.

You get the picture.

Yeah, I get it.

All right, I'll talk to Artur

and make the footage disappear.

You just make sure

to tell the senator

to be at my house for dinner

next Friday night, okay?

Very well.

I almost forgot.

The building commission approved

the plans for the casino.

All you gotta do is sign here

and start building in a month.


I told you, all they needed

was just a little push.

You're not home much these days.

Just going out

and doing my thing.

I'm not ready to be a grandpa

just yet, you understand?

Oh, will you stop.

Michael knows that already.

I'm just saying.

Yes, he knows.

Come here, I gotta talk to you.

Everyone's here except Artur.
