Whenever you're ready.

When you're ready.


I have some amulets,

candles for ceremonies,

We have incense

for good luck, for cleansing...

I'll take three.

We also have the Holy Reaper.

It has some quartz.

Those are 20 pesos.

Hi, how are you?

About Argentina?

What channel?

Is it serious?

I just can't find it. Here it is.


It's on mute.


Yes, I see.

Yes, I'm watching it.

Are the banks to blame?

I'll call you later.

Yeah. I'm on my way.

I'll bring the pictures. Yes. Thanks.

- Hi.

- How are you?

- In a rush. F***ed.

- Lot of work?

Yeah, loads.

He's been waiting for you.

Is he tense?

No, he's cool.

Thanks for telling me about the news.

- Going to Rebeca's birthday party?

- Yes. Will you be there?

Yes, but I'll come a bit later.

Here are the pictures.

Now we're even.

But at odds with the continent.

Have you seen

the chaos in your country?

Have they told you already?

On Monday we're covering this f***er.

Are you going to interview him?

If he lets me.

Is he going to lie to you?

No, its just there's a protest

against him and we have to cover it.

- Did the boss give you sh*t?

- No. Can I call Buenos Aires?

Just don't let anybody see you.

Hi, sweetie, it's me.

Yes, I got them. How are you?

How's grandma?

Yeah, I heard about it,

that's why I called you. How are they?

Yeah, Buenos Aires

and other cities too.

No, I'm fine, and you guys?

No, sure.

Have you paid the school yet?

Then pay for half of it.

Because I'm in a bit of a rut.

But I've already sent you some...

Don't worry, everything is okay.

No, no problem, sweetie, really.

I'll send you the rest soon.


No, Marta is still in Europe.

It's great 'cause I don't have

to pay rent. I'm house-sitting.

Sure, plus I'm reading all her books.

Sweetie, one more thing.

They called me from the embassy.

Dad's lawyer called me.

It seems he doesn't want me

to get tested.

He just doesn't want me to.

Sure, it's difficult for me too.

Why doesn't he want me to do it?

Does that mean that I'm not his daughter?

Okay, but I do want to know.

I want to.

No. I don't... I want to...

Yes, I'm scared.

But if they told you

that your parents aren't really

your parents and that your real parents

were killed, wouldn't you test

your DNA to know if this is true?

What if it were your children?

Look sweetie, I don't know.

I'm so f***ing tired

of these abstract conversations

about dictatorships, about DNA,

about kidnappings and...

I need to know who I am!

Okay, no... Okay.

Yeah. I also have to think.

I need more time.

Just leave me alone.

We'll all think about it!

That's it!

Sweetie, just kiss

everyone for me. Okay?

No, don't worry about me.

Sweetie, I have to go.

Okay, sure. And kisses.

Thanks, bye.

Protest, protest because

Mexico's government stinks

Stinks! Stinks!

i'm sure you've noticed

The damage is serious

Those motherfuckers

in every corner of the state

in the North

They gave us protection

Just iike vuitures

They became cops

That grab you,

Rob you, beat you

They are state cops


They come by the mounds

Against my brothers

The North zone!

Urban support!

They're beating us!

Corruption! Deception!

The people's intervention!

Corruption! Deception!

The people's intervention!

Murderers! Murderers!

Murderers! Murderers!



Are you sleeping?

Can I ask you a question?

Would you kill someone for me?

I once killed an idiot

who stole 5 grams from me.

Did you think I would say no?

Is he from the neighborhood?

No, he lives in Taquar.

What did he do? Did he hurt you?

Rubem Fonseca

Rubem Fonseca (born May 11, 1925) is a Brazilian writer. He was born in Juiz de Fora, in the state of Minas Gerais, but he has lived most of his life in Rio de Janeiro. In 1952, he started his career as a low-level cop and, later became a police commissioner, one of the highest ranks in the civil police of Brazil. Following the steps of American novelist Thomas Pynchon, a close friend of Fonseca, he refuses to give interviews and feels strongly about maintaining his privacy.His stories are dark and gritty, filled with violence and sexual content, and usually set in an urban environment. He claims a writer should have the courage to show what most people are afraid to say. His work is considered groundbreaking in Brazilian literature, up until then mostly focused on rural settings and usually treating cities with less interest. Almost all Brazilian contemporary writers acknowledge Fonseca's importance. Authors from the rising generation of Brazilian writers, such as Patrícia Melo or Luis Ruffato, have stated that Fonseca's writing has influenced their work.He started his career by writing short stories, considered by some critics as his strongest literary creations. His first popular novel was A Grande Arte (High Art), but "Agosto" is usually considered his best work. In 2003, he won the Camões Prize, considered to be the most important award in the Portuguese language. more…
