- Smile now, cry later.

That's what people say when

things have gone wrong.

I don't believe in pretending.

I'll smile when I find

what I'm looking for.

- Uh, uh, uh, uh.

- So what you do you do, Victor?

- Vincent.

- Vincent Esquivel, right?

- I'm a messenger.

- Oh, is that God calling?

- It's my cousin.

So, is it Lucy like Lucia,

or Lucy like Lucille?

- More like Lucifer.

I'm going to go get our stuff.

- She's funny.

- That's Celestina.

It's Luzy, with a Z.

- So kind of like Lucy

and kind of like Luz,

like the light that will shine my path.

Oh sh*t!

They're looking for you!

So what do you make of it?

- You designed this.

Why make something so sad?

- The only cure for the

blues is to sing them.

Who's that?

- Sorry, it's um,

it's my boyfriend.

It was good meeting you, Vincent.

- It was inspiring.


How can I find you?

- I'm a tattoo artist.

- Hey fool, what's up with those sounds?

- I could hear that paisa

noise from down the street!

I bet you were rain dancing.

- Those who dance are considered insane.

- By those who can't hear the music!

- Hey.

Who's that?

- Uh, a potential client.

- I like that.

Always on the hustle.

Time to start making a

return on my investment, huh?

- Hey Pete, Luzy's shop

opened a month ago.

They don't even have a sign yet, okay?

So like Calmate!

- Put your seat belt on.

Bits and pieces fill our minds

We dwell inside a space

of freedom and escape

From the world and its chains

Shifting shapes and twisting...

- Hey, I was on my home and just

came by to drop off your key.

Now that we're not together anymore

it doesn't feel right to hold onto it.

- Thanks.

- Sure.

I was going to take my art books back,

but um,

you can have them.

They're yours.

- Thank you.

- Sure.

- Would you like something to drink?

- Yeah.

- Um, what would you like?

- I'll let you choose.

- Coffee or tea?

- Uh,


- You tasted a little salty last night.

- Erik and I were on a mission.

- A bit smoky too.

Did you start smoking?

- I had a couple with Erik last night.

- Careful not to make it a habit.

It's bad for your health.

- Mhm.

- Mhm.

Mister E, um, I'm

leaving, I'm running late.

- Ok.

- I'm going to do laundry tonight.

I'm going to take your

dirty clothes and wash them.

- No, no you don't have to bother!

- Oh, it's no bother.

- No, really!

You don't have to.


- Hiya, all the computers

are down out here.

- Just a second.

Right, okay,

got it, thanks.

- Can I hop on real

quick to make a search?

- Only if you deliver these

court filings to San Pedro.

Do it quick like.

They gotta be there real soon.

- Yeah, sure.

- Okay, You've got five minutes.

- So what's up with you?

- What'd you think of

that guy last night?

- Who, Victor?

- Vincent.

- Aaaah.

I don't know, what'd you

think about that guy?

- Well I can't think much.

- Sometimes you just gotta feel it.

- But I've got Pete.

I've got 20k to pay off for this shop.

- You owe Pete 20k?

Damn girl, that's a lot of tattoos.

- You're telling me.

I see you got another

arm right there though.

- Ay, Cabrona, you left me sore!


- I feel like he's looking for me.

- Well, let him find you.

another pickup in Long Beach.

I need you downtown ASAP.
