Dard Divorce

Synopsis: Natalie Stein, a successful lawyer, emigrated with her parents from Germany to the USA at a very young age. The last things that stand between her and a happy life with her daughter and son, are the divorce settlement with her lowlife husband Tim and a nasty drinking habit. But a lot more is about to happen that she didn't bargain for when her dog goes missing and her mortally wounded husband appears on the doorstep, informing her that the children have been kidnapped. By the time the police arrives at her house, Tim's body has mysteriously vanished. When not much later one million dollars, a bag of cocaine and some gangsters enter the game, Natalie finds herself in less than no time tied to a chair in her own kitchen. Let the torture begin...

That was Lawernce Berg in North Carolina.

And Mark you are next on the EIB Network, hello Rush...

... it is an honour to speak

with you. -- Thank you, sir.

I just find it ironic that, when we, uh,

When we have street demonstrations.

in favour of Amnesty, we've tried people

for sending up the Mexican flag.

There is nothing that could have been

done to make this situation better.

Other then to turn back time,

so that it wouldn't happen at all.

In this moment, there were two choices for me

to give up or start a completely

new life from the beginning.

I chose the latter. And made

this the day of my rebirth.

From a sober standpoint, if someone were to

ask me if I am an alcoholic.

Then I would have to answer yes.

When I look back at my life today...

You could say that everything was just

like in a story-book. Well, almost everything.

My parents, Sabina and Bernad Stein.

immigrated 15 years ago from Germany to America

And settled in my California

My father started a fast food restaurant.

as if there weren't enough in America.

But it did very well.

Before long he was earning lots of money

The only problem was. That I got pregnant.

At the tender age of 14.

That's Elisabeth,

my first born.

-- Wheres my orange juice.

-- In the frigde where it always is.

Well, I am late. You could at least

have put it on the table.

The early riser is never late, you have

heard this before. Put it to practice.

- Thats bullshit.

- Don't talk to me like that.

I'm not one of your girlfriends.


-- What about Jeremy.

-- He's still asleep.

I thought I asked you to wake him up on time.

you know that your Dad is...

Coming after school to pick you guys up.

-- It's boring.

Listen, Elisabeth. We will get

through all of this together.

Soon, we will get a verdict.

I want to be sure everything is going as planned.

After that neither of you will have

to go to your Father's.

Yeah, but.

No but's. -- At the age of 13

children are always a bit difficult.

I've grown to ignore the crabby

comments and bad attitude.

At the request of my parents

I married Elisabeth's father, Tim.

Come on, sleepy head.

Time to get dressed and brush your teeth.

Besides my motherly duties. I continued

with my profession as a lawyer.

Tim managed a few of my Father's

restaurants. And later after his death.

He assumed complete responsibility for

the franchise. Unfortunately, without success.

I still do not know exactly when it started.

But, eventually we grew apart.

And then our fights and divorce.

Where are the damned burgers.

The guests are getting impatient, get moving.

Sorry boss. But as you can see,

I am the only one here today

I don't give a flying f*ck, if you are the only

one here. Or only have one arm.

I want the burgers in a minute.

Or you can get packing.

Get the f*ck out of here.

You are more trouble then your worth.

Tim was nasty as it started and took every

opportunity he could to make my life difficult.

The irony is that

I am a divorce attorney.

And I'll be sure to

leave him with nothing.

Hi, hello, sorry that I am late.

Sunday evening at 5, if you are not

on time I'll call the police.

-- Okay, I'll, be on time.

-- And Timothy, have a good time its one of the last.

I am sure that Tim knew

I have a lover.

After I told Tim I had filed for divorce.

He flipped out a bit.

He wanted to have full

custody of the children.

So he and his lawyer tried to

Paint me as an alcoholic.

Whose unable to take care of the children.

It wasn't my objective, but I decided

to use all my legal savvy, very quickly
