Move! Hurry! Hurry!

Stop him! Stop him!

- Move! Move! Move out of the way!

- Move! Whoa!

What the f*ck?


Get back!


Stop it!

Stop it!

Get back!


Too bad for you

there is extradition

between Hong Kong and Thailand.

And you should have

thought about that

before you screwed some little

kids, you piece of shit.

F*ck you, bitch!



He is a pedophile, guys,

come on!

I pay them very well to ignore.

Where are you?

On Kam Yuen street.

Let them arrest you.

don't put any resistance.

And please wait for me.

Your lawyer is here.


To be honest with you,

you're completely screwed.

I could've helped you

before the retrocession,

- but as it is, I just...

- Have you paid the bail?

- Yeah.

How much this time?

10,000 U.S. dollars

and 10 more for the

dismissal of charges.

That's it?

You thought you'd set

a record or what?

Next time maybe.

Time to go.

The police have found

about 10 kids at Khae's.

Beijing has ordered

his extraction.

- Hungry?

- No.

Let's party.

This is for you as well...

Offered by Interpol.

What about my passport?

Your time will come, Gabe.

Okay, I'm good.

- Hello?

- Hey, hola, chica.

So, what country?

Sun, palm trees,

crystal clear sea water...

Guess where?

Um, Scotland?




Cuba? Oh, bien.

You speak Spanish now?

Yeah, un poquito, un poquito.

So you're calling to tell me

you're coming back soon

and I have to book days off,

or that I will have to wait

because you don't have

your passport yet?

Yes, yes, and no.

Hey, you still there?

I just came across the T-shirt

you sent me a year ago.


- Gabriel?

- Yeah, yeah.

I'm sorry,

but I have to go, so...

But I'll call you

back very soon, okay?


- Sleep tight.

- Oh, thank you.

Can't you just give me

a call before you come...

Your mobile is off, Gabe.

But I'd rather you woke me up

instead of that bitch.


Hello, Gabriel.

Did you sleep well?

Can people sleep well

in Hong Kong?

Nobody can sleep well

with the noise

from these restless streets.

I'm not talking

about restless streets.

I'm talking about

restless minds.

Oh, come on, Gabe.

We're going to sit down

and drink our

wonderful cappuccino.


near the north Korean border.


We had an agent posted there,

keeping watch

since Kim Jong II's death,

but we haven't heard

from him for 10 days.

I need you to find him

and bring him back

okay, and what if he is dead?

Do I bring you back his corpse?

This is the last shot

we have of him.

It was taken from a security

camera two months ago.

How many times

are you gonna dump me

with your dirty work?

Look at the photo.

I've already cleaned out

the whole of Asia.

What's next?

I'm only the messenger, okay?

Yeah, who gives me champagne

and gets me to swallow the pill

the day before?

Is that Witaker?


Yes, the guy who pissed

his pants in Rangoon, right?

Gabe, come on.

If someone tortured your

genitals with burning iron,

I'm not sure you'd have kept

a stiff upper lip.

Well, it depends on who's

holding the iron.

If you send

your worst agent up there,

don't be surprised

if he gets lost.

Witaker is my husband,

you prick!

I don't give a shit!

You married him, I didn't.

- But if we don't...

- "We"? There is no "we."

"We" is "me," and don't

start like we are a family.

- I don't buy it.

- Calm down, Gabe, please.

So why don't you inform

the Chinese secret services?

Because his mission was

off the record!

So it is hopeless

and you know it.

All right, if it was me,

would you send a commando
