This is the first one.

It's the easiest one,

you won't need much time to get it.

This one will be a little longer.

You have to be patient with this one.

It's just a matter of time.

Any questions about the cylinders?

I'd like to see it now.

Of course.



What do you think?

It's cool, right?

Yes but, don't want him... see it.

Don't worry.

When you need it, ok?


Finished. How does it feel?

It's ok.

Does it feel rough, or does it hurt at all?

Shall we give it a try?


First the blue one.

You have to think that you can move it.


Now close it.

Can't do it. How do I take it off?


You wanna give it another go?



I have to explain it to your dad, ok?

I have to do it.

You can't... have a shower with it,

...and it's not really

comfortable to sleep, ok?

How long will it take

me to use it properly?

That depends on you.

If you're patient, it will be quick.

I'm gonna go talk to your dad, ok?

...a little concerned of her psychological impact...

All right.

So how did it go?

Can I let mum out yet?


What are you hiding there?


You're hiding something, I can smell it.

Yes, but you must promise me,

that you're not going to be scared.

I promise.

Well, what do you think of it?

It doesn't smell like you.


Yes, it's better now.

Let's start with the blue one, shall we?


How do you do that?

Do you just have to think about it?

Yeah, kind of.

It's difficult to explain.

Try to drop it.

Very good.

Ok, ok, ok. Don't worry.

Try again.


Oh, come on Alice.

Don't give up so easy, uh?

I'm not gonna do it again.

Just one more time. Come on.


Alice, just do it.

I said no!

I'm going to take a walk with mum, I'll be back later.

Wait, wait.

Alice, sit down.

She's not your mum.

You know that I hate you, don't you?



What is it?

Don't know.

Where is dad?





What's your name?

His name is Paul.

I am Erika.

He doesn't talk.

Is he mute?

Yes. Kind of.

I'm Alice.

He is my father, Adam.

And she is my mother, Beatrice.


...who did this?

If you don't tell us,

we'll have to call the police.


He is my boyfriend.

This morning he called

me to go make a picnic.

I asked him if Paul could come with us.

And he said:

But Paul followed me,

...and he saw us.

I asked him to stop,

...that Paul was there, but he wouldn't.

So I hit him.

And he got very angry.

I had never seen him like that before.

Where does David live?

I don't know.

He never took me to his house.

And where do you live?

In town.

With your parents?

They're dead.

I'm gonna prepare you a room.

And tomorrow I'll take you home.

And don't worry...

the house is shielded, the doors...

...are double locked, and they

can't be opened from the outside.

Is that ok to you?

Do you feel better now?

Everything's going to be alright.

Don't think about David.

What do you think about her?

Do you like her?

I just came to see if you were alright.

We are ok. Thanks.

I'm glad to hear it.

May I ask you a question?

Yes, of course.

What happened to Alice's arm?

The dress you're wearing is mine.

But it doesn't matter. You can keep it.

I'm worried Alice.

They don't smell good to me.

Neither they do to me mum.

There's something out there.

I'm sure you can see it.

Alice, you really have to go tell Adam.


Because, he will protect us.

Where did you see it?

Behind these bushes.

There's nothing there.

There was something black behind

of those bushes in front of you.

Wait, it's not there anymore. It's...

it's moved.

What's that over there? That black

thing behind that bush over there.

What happens?

It's nothing.

Don't worry, you can go to bed.

Are you sure?



I know that you liked her.


They're leaving today.

Maybe, they should stay one more day.

Just in case.

Where is your sister?

Where is your sister?

Alice! Alice come back!



How do you do it in front of her?

Do what?

Touch her face! In front of mum!

Touch that b*tch!

Ah, she's not your mum.

You son of a b*tch, yes she is!

No baby, she's not your mum.

Yes she is! You transformed her!

She's like that because of you!

You transformed me too!

Look at what you've done!


I'm sorry.

Alice, Alice I'm sorry.

We're not the same anymore.

That's not...

We're not the same anymore.

Yes, we're different!

No baby, no. You're not.

You transformed us all!

Don't deny it!

I killed her.


No, no, no, no!

I killed her.

No she's there! She's right there!

No, I killed her, I killed her, I killed her...

No, look!

No! No! No!

Baby, baby, listen.

Listen to me, listen to me, honey, honey...


Forgive me.

I can't, I'm sorry.

Forgive me, please.

I swear I tried but I can't.

Tell her you're sorry.

Tell mum that you're sorry.

Go tell her now.

I can't do that.

Tell her you're sorry!

I can't do that.

I can't do that baby.

You didn't love her, you f***ing, murderer!

You didn't love her, you're a f***ing murderer!

Don't say that.

Don't say that.

Tell mum that you're sorry!


Tell her!

No, I won't! I won't tell her I'm sorry!

I won't tell her anything!

Are you sure?


But Alice, maybe the girl

in the listening is not you.

It's me.

And how is it that she is able

to use the cube and you're not?

Because, it hasn't happened yet.
