THOSE 35 AND UNDER.

THE COMPENSATION MARKE IS BOOMING.

C'mon, you son of a bitch!

- Come over here.

- Shut up and walk.

- How d'you know my dad?

- From soccer.

- Oh yeah? Which club?

Son of a bitch!

Which club was my father in?

Which team?

Which club was my father in,

piece of shit?

Laferrere.

- Can't remember?

- I'm not sure...

Couldn't wait 'til after the burial,

Swindling fucker.

Let's go!

Respect the dead,

son of a bitch!

- Fucking vulture!

- Let's get out of here.

Ready, Lujn?

Hurry up, please!

Coming,

Come on, hurry it up!

FUNERAL HOME:

Do you copy, Sosa?

Motorbike-truck collision

on Mosconi and Villegas.

Take it easy,

They're coming.

I see him, over there,

Bring the stretcher, Pico.

Good evening,

What happened?

He crossed in front of the truck.

Strong blow to the head,

no helmet.

- Do you know if he's drunk?

- Doesn't smell of alcohol,

- Do you know his name?

- I think it's Gustavo.

Loss of consciousness?

He was speaking up until now,

- Gustavo, do you hear me?

- Yes,

I'm a doctor, Okay?

This is a neck brace.

We're taking you to the hospital.

- Do you remember what happened?

- No.

You don't? Nothing at all?

How old are you, Gustavo?

- Were you working?

- Yes.

Stay calm.

Can you help me

with the stretcher?

Put his head down

and come beside me.

I have my first aid certificate.

Good.

Put one hand over here...

and hold the other one here.

On my count of three,

we'll move him.

Ready? One, two, three,

Stay calm.

Okay. One, two, three.

We put him down, Good.

There we go!

Officer, can you help me please?

Are you okay?

Me?

More or less, yes.

- Were you driving?

- No, it's something else,

Let's see...

- Stay still.

- Let's go, Lujn.

- You need stitches,

- Thank you,

Pico...

- Do you know him?

- What?

That guy who just helped us.

Do you know him?

Yes...

Why?

He's following us.

Don't worry,

He's coming to the clinic with us,

- So?

- They won't admit him,

- Why?

- How should I know?

No one's on call,

the place is a mess, Usual bullshit.

- She's trying to get him in,

- Who is she?

She's new.

Sister of a friend of mine.

You have an IC unit

and a CAT scan here.

I'm sorry, I can't admit him.

I'm not taking him anywhere,

so work it out.

Talk to your supervisor.

- Excuse me.

- Good evening.

- Is Russo in today?

- Yes, he is.

Can you call him over?

I'll go see.

What about me?

You wait.

Gustavo, are you okay?

I can't believe this...

Don't worry.

Excuse me.

Pico, I'll leave the chart

and meet you outside.

- Everything okay?

- Yes, thanks.

Any problems?

No, everything's fine.

- Thanks for he ping.

- You're welcome.

Can I have your name?

Olivera.

- Your first name?

- Lujn, Lujn Olivera.

- Need my license?

- No, this is fine.

Here, just in case.

Keep it, you never know.

See you.

Thanks, Sosa, I mean it,

Bye.

How long have you known Sosa?

- Long enough.

- How long is long enough?

Enough is like 8 or 10 years.

- Always been a "vulture"?

- No.

No, he started

when he lost his license.

Started working for

those Foundation assholes.

First, you get 200 bucks for the tip.

If it turns into a case,

Do the clients get paid?

It's a swindle,

but they get some money.

These people don't have

medical coverage or jobs.

The Foundation ends up

being like social work for them,

Social work?

Yes, social work.

For someone lying under a bus

at 4 a.m., with broken bones,
