Breaking And Entering

Synopsis: A mother and her daughter, a mother and her son, and a man living with one and attracted to the other. Miro, a teen from Sarajevo, lives near King's Cross with his mother; he's nimble, able to run across roofs, so his uncle hires him to break into office skylights, so the uncle can boost computers. Twice they steal from Will's architectural firm, so Will stakes it out at night. He follows Miro home and returns the next day and meets Miro's mother, Amira. At home, Will's relationship with Liv is strained - he feels outside Liv and her daughter Bea's circle. The stakeout and Amira's vulnerability are attractive alternatives to being at home. The police, too, watch Miro.

When do you stop looking at each other?

Shouldn't there be a warning?

Shouldn't somebody say to us,

'Hey, watch out, pay attention'?

Because you can be thinking,

'I'm okay, we're okay,

we're good.'

Then you turn around and...

a distance between you.

Zorany! Miro!

I've got a little job for you.

The Speed Merchants?

I'm sorry, I apologize.

Traffic.

Yeah, bad traffic for three days?

Hi, Bea.

Hi, Dad.

Very exciting.

Okay, Bea.

- No, I want...

- Stop with the balloon.

No, stop, stop.

Who's that?

- That's one of the cleaners.

- Yeah.

It's the cleaner, yeah.

Yeah, you know her...

Erika.

She's staggering.

Staggering.

Why do you have a picture

of one of the cleaners on your computer?

I was just experimenting with my camera.

I was just, um, you know,

'Can I just...?

Oh, that's good.'

Come on.

It's all right for you, mate,

you've got a gorgeous,

Swedish wife.

Girlfriend.

Half Swedish.

You cannot say girlfriend after ten years.

You all right?

I mean, isn't that true?

You've been there,

are you gassed in Sweden if you're ugly?

Or maybe just given a penis,

because some of the men can be very ugly,

but I've never seen an ugly Swedish woman.

Jesus, look at Liv.

Oh, I love this space.

We do. We think it's

a steal. Thanks for coming.

That's us. Let's go!

Are we crazy?

No.

About what?

King's Cross.

Sandy still thinks we're crazy to move there.

It's so... the area.

It's a great office, isn't it?

And it was a...

It's a great project,

it was a great night.

I don't know.

It's all great.

Thank you for making an effort tonight.

The launch,

I know it's not your...

but it really helped.

It's okay. It's fine.

Was it an effort?

What? That's her.

That's Bea.

No, that's a fox.

No, it's her,

she was exhausted.

They're taking over London.

I hate that noise.

It's so late.

How can she just not sleep?

I don't think going to her always...

I don't know if that helps.

I know you don't.

Let's go back and see someone.

I've seen too many someones.

Sorry.

I'm sorry.

Listen, what you're doing,

the whole project, for London,

the office, everything...

it's wonderful.

I think it can genuinely be something...

Rubbish.

- Terrible.

- ... genuinely rubbish-like.

Crap.

I'll come back.

Down, hold...

one, two, three.

Turn, one, two, three.

Bea, darling, it's 3:30 in the morning.

We have to stop this.

One, two...

Hello?

Yeah, well, no, I mean,

I'm his partner, so...

Yes, I am.

What? !

Hi.

Officer, this place is my business.

Go on, go ahead.

- My partner's in there already.

- Okay.

I had everything on that laptop,

my life is on that laptop.

I'm very sorry, sir.

Will! Will!

All the computers, my laptop,

the petty cash...

Well, how did they get in?

Through the roof.

- What about the alarm?

- They turned it off.

Well, how do they know the code?

I wasn't here.

I don't know.

- Jesus Christ.

- Do you have cleaners?

It's not the cleaners.

This is covered in glass.

It's not the cleaners.

I know it's...

I know the cleaners.

How can we have a break-in on our first day?

Unless the cleaners have turned

into a bunch of acrobats.

Who is it?

It's Zoran and Miro.

- Hey.

- Hey.

How's my best nephew, hmm?

- Dragan.

- Huh?

See my hands? See his?

Uh-huh.

His dad had the big brains.

I had the big hands.

Your dad had hands like a girl's.

And the girls loved him.

It's the same with you two.

My son is the clumsy one.

This is for you.

Wipe everything.

You know how to do that?

Erase everything?

They'll be delivering new computers,

and then you can go back in,
