Please, papa, can I have one?

One what? I didn't get anything.

Yes, you did!

- We saw you!

- Oh, did you?

- Yes!

- Hmm, let's see.

Thank you.

And one for my princess.


Come on.

Tomorrow when I wake up,

I'm just gonna look like

a little circle candy.

We'll catch a cat

and put it in a hat.

- I'm hungry.

- You're hungry?

- Yeah.

- All right.

- Are you hungry, too?

- No.

Uh, I'm hungry, too.

How far is it? I'm tired of walking.

Is that boy following us?

You all right?


You okay?

Come on.

Is that boy gonna stay

with us, papa?

Maybe, baby.

Maybe. Hey, lay down.

When is mama coming?

Mama's not coming.

Why not?


You guys are on a special vacation

with papa, remember?

And if you saw mama,

then you wouldn't see papa anymore.


Don't worry about it.


Is that what you want?

You want papa to get in trouble?

- No.

- Hmm?

- No.

- Leave my papa alone!

Leave my papa alone.

That's right, baby.

Okay, lights out.


Oh, boy, sorry about that.

So, has your mother

done this before?

She always leave.

And you don't have anybody else?

What are we gonna do with you, huh?

Mama, I did write you one letter,

but I didn't know where to send it,

so me burned it up.

If you come home,

you're not gonna find me here.

I am somewhere else now.

The man up the road --

do you know him?

I met him in autumn.

He let me stay and work for him.

Me get a job now.

The other tourist, him gone.

But him still there.

He is American. He teaches

me to talk like an American.

He says I can be an American, too.

Him name John.

What state do you live in?


There are two.

Well, one's the capitol and,

the other one's just a place.

Which one's yours?

Just the place.

She not coming back, is she?

I don't know.

When I was your age,

I used to play a game called

"Life is not fair."

You know why they called it that?

'Cause life is not fair. It sucks.

But you got to play.

I don't know. Maybe

she wants to come back.

But she can't.

Maybe she's dead.

What'd you say?

Hope she is.

Hey, stranger. Welcome back.

- And who's this now?

- That's my son.

- That's not your son.

- That's my other son.

Are you okay?

Sure, sure, just busy, busy, busy.

Did I leave a shirt here?

A blue one?



Well, let me go wash up quick.

You guys can say hello.

So, uh, visiting your dad?

Hey. Is it okay if we stay tonight?

Why didn't you tell me about him?

I'm not gonna catch

him going through my

underwear drawers

or something, am I?


Can I get you to go out

for a little bit?

Don't get lost.


May I take your order?

Do you have cheap burgers?

Change your whole life

if you're ready, sir.

The United States army is hiring.

Yes, you sir.

Hell yeah!

Make way!

You got a minut

for your future, son?

How old are you?


you're a little bit too young,

but you come back in a year,

you understand?

You come back.

We'll be ready for you.

Have yourself a good day.

It'll change your whole life

if you're ready, sir.

Hop on.

This used to be my neighborhood,

you know? I used to live here.

People used to live here.

Real people, I thought.

Everybody turned into ghosts.

It was like I didn't exist anymore.
