95 min

Now, I'm gonna say something to

you that I hear nearly every day.

"I need a change."

You ever notice how the people

that say it always stay the same?

That's because change finds you.

- Oh, oh...

- No.

No, no, no, no.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no,

no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!

No! F***!

No f***ing way!

Damn it!


Erm... Yeah, it's Earlene.

I hate to ask this.

I know it's really awkward, but...

can you lend me some cash?

Nina, hey. I need to

borrow some money.

Nothing. I'll pay you back.

Tom, yeah!

I know, I know.

It's been a long time.

No problem. Yeah, I'm fine. I'm fine.

Now you don't feel the same

Walking round in the rain

Now it's your turn to

What you got left to lose?

The road is long

But can we stay strong?

Every turn

The risk is us

So do we give up?

Every turn

"Experience is the name

we give our mistakes."

So what does that make you?

- What's your name?

- Earlene.

- What's yours?

- I'm Bruno.

Bruno? That's kinda butch for a boy.

It's what my folks wanted.

- Where are you from?

- Australia.

- Wow. Are you on vacation?

- No. Are you?

Yeah, not exactly. You know,

it's kind of more like a break.

So, Bruno...

Do you ever think that...

- F*** it. Never mind.

- Go on.

Do you ever think...

that tomorrow can be so

f***ing different from today?

I think I only live the tomorrows.

Helps you get past the yesterdays.

I like you.

I think.

- They didn't ID you?

- Nope.

This f***ing country.

I think I look older than I am.

You're a baby.

- Where are you going?

- Back to my hotel.

- Let me walk you back.

- Let go of me.

I'm not letting you walk

home alone like this.

Right. My knight in shining armour.

Why don't you go conquer the other

women like the rest of the guys?

- I'm not like other guys.

- Get your hands off me.


I'm lost.

Come on, drunkie!

Is this your art?

Er, yeah. Although I've kinda

moved away from that style.

Yeah. It gives you headaches.

To new friends.

Nice try.

Are all these yours, cowboy?

I mean, don't sweat it.

It's OK if you live with your mom.

I'm sorry. I get a little

mouthy when I'm drunk.

You're a good kid.

What's this?

What's it look like?

- They're different parts.

- Parts of what?

Parts of a whole.

- What's this?

- Oh, that's just a dream I had.

I've always wanted to go to Paris.

It's on the other side of

the world, though, so...

There's an Eiffel Tower about

a six-hour drive from here.

- Really?

- Yeah.

It's a replica.

It's what Americans do best.

Wow. I would love that.

Stay here tonight.

That was Utah Carol with "Airplanes".


We have to go!

We have to go right now!

Come on! Come on!

- Jesus.

- Come on!

I'm calling the police!

They're gonna catch you!

You gonna tell me what the

hell just happened back there?

I was couch surfing. On the sly.

Jesus. You've got a lot

of explaining to do.

- I don't have to tell you anything.

- Er, yeah, you do.

I just unknowingly committed

a crime back there!

- I'm an accomplice to a criminal.

- I'll pay them back.

You're gonna pay them back... Great.

It's not funny.

You are gonna be a bad influence.

So, how do you do it?

Well, you go on

vacation rentals sites.

You say you want someone's place for a

few days, you know, a week, a month.

Tag them along and delay

the deposit. Then you pull out.

They won't cancel their trip,

so you stay there while they're gone.

- And you break in?

- Yeah.

- That's pretty smart.

- It is. I don't act alone, though.

How many of you are there?

There's too many at the moment.

People are catching on.

Well, you don't know that.

Maybe she just had a shitty vacation.

What's going on? Where are you going?

To do a deal.

- Are you on drugs?

- What are you, my mum or something?

Listen. I think you're really cool.

I'll see you around.

It's LA Talk Radio.

We say what we want.

It's payday Friday,

dudes and dudettes.

Who's up for tearing a trail

down Hollywood Boulevard

and etching their names

on one of those stars?

Watch out for mine, though.

You'll have to wipe off the

dog poo to get a look at it.

In the meantime, this is

Matt Van Schie, "Airboy".

You're not usually like this.

What I'm saying is if you

don't want to do it...

I'm fine.

- I want to do it, Kris.

- Ta.


How many times do I

have to tell you that?

Whatever. Just follow my lead, OK?


What is it?

We need to open up. They're waiting.


Hey, D. So, what's up?

What's going on?

Same as last time.

It's more if... you know.

Yeah, I know. But this time,

we're calling the shots.

He's not... Is he?

Good luck.

Hello, Krista.

- This is Bruno.

- Hello, Bruno.

Follow me.

Why don't you just...? You here.


Now I can get a good look at you.


What are you?

PAIS. Partial androgen

insensitivity syndrome.


I hate that word. "Syndrome."

- Were you aware of this?

- Yeah.

But you're not quite sure

what we do here, are you?

Chromosomes. The building

blocks of us. And you.

I study people like yourselves

and gather information

for scientists, paediatricians,

psychologists, psychiatrists.

But mostly for parents.

The people who created you.

They want to make the right

decisions for their kids.

We help them make those decisions.

Take off your clothes.

Yes? How may I help you?

I'm looking for a guy with dark hair.

Tall, dark skin, erm...
