I'll call you.

Thigo sir!

How was your flight?

Bring me all the records.

To see how much

must dig the hole.

Hey, buddy.

What I said about smoking here?

- What about that?

- For the image.

Now you will have to dream.

I've done so far

not a single reservation.

- Do not you think that maybe I was wrong business?

- Think positive.

If you think, believe and customers.

Art trade.

Dubai will be the next destination

preferred to ski.

Yes, I understand.

I shall discuss a few things


- I'll be back in an hour.

- Okay.

Remember, Bing.

Sell? Them a dream.


Go ahead, sir Thigo.

The best snack.

- What's in this cup?

- Eel.

Trying to tell me that you consume

The content of this glass?

You said you want something traditional.

It is among traditional things.

Buses floors, crown jewels,


I do not want to seem disrespectful

to the royal family,

to transport

public or national cuisine,

but if you do not take sh*t

in front of me, you have a problem.

Yes, sir Thigo.

- What?

- You fool.

Mother, I am.

I'm in the living room, Nicolas!

There you are.

How are you, mother?

Why not wear sheep's coat?

Because not so cold.

Global Warming mocks

mother nature.

In a minute sunshine,

and the next snow.

You do not want to be caught unprepared.

- Want something?

- Put water to boil?

I am in a wheelchair,

but all I can do my son

preferred a cup of tea.

Last time I checked,

I was your only son.

Even an old woman like me

have one secret.

Give me a ham sandwich

if you're still there.


What did they do?

All right.

Mom, I gotta go.

Something came up.

Last time I heard this

I have not seen three and half years.

Do not worry, Mom.

It's not like it.

Only a small loss in business.

I'll be back later to see what you do.

- I love you. Take care.

- Okay.

That the financial market storm

is the root of my problems.

Bonds, stocks...

All appear on the money

throw them on the streets, Mr. Thigo.

Let me explain, young man.

Banker loses the weekly bonus.

As a consequence, must

recreational few sacrifices.

Instead of the usual dose,

now buy only one gram.

's Escort $ 5,000

per night... reduced to a small

in the bathroom of a strip club.


- Whose loss?

- A Harlots and dealers.

- And whose profits are linked to it?

- Fish and traffickers.

And who is next on the list?

In recession, no one is hit

stronger than the moneylender.

These loans outstanding

I make holes in pockets.

And what?

It seems that love or fingers

not have any effect.

- Debtor refuses to pay.

- You will pay.

We do that once.

What do the street

in my nightgown?

- I thought we were up to date with payments.

- We are. I paid all the rates.

When looking for my kitchen

Others do behind the truck?

Maybe you do not need kitchen

but I am.


- Why do you wear clothes that?

- I just talked with Yuri.

I reserved a number in Mayfair.

I told you do not have

to do that again.

I have promised to take care of you.

Really appreciate what you try

to do for me and your mother.

But to mess up,

must go back to work.

Do not worry.

I'll be the one giving the beating.



- Hi, Nick.

- If looking for trouble, I really feel.

Thigo Lord's in town.

- He wants to talk to you.

- What does Thigo from me?

How are you, Nick?

I know I am behind in payment

but not to cross the ocean

to tell me that.

- You're late four weeks to be exact.

- I pay him.

I woke up this morning

with a new business mentality.

Let me recover all the money

of my organization's investments.
