I was just thinking about you.

You coming home soon?

Uh, no, I'm just...

I'm not finished yet.



How is it going?

Well, I'm not getting anywhere.

Tomas, don't lose faith.

You have it in you, you know that.

Will you stop saying that?

It's, it's not that simple.

And listen, I was, I was thinking

about what we discussed yesterday.

Do we have to talk about

it on the phone?

I might just as well tell you now.

I'm, uh...

I'm not ready for all that.

Keep goin', keep goin'.

We're closed.

The weight of the world

is getting so heavy

Restless helpless

people get ready

Remember the sun

Remember the sun


remember the sun


It's the middle of the day

nothing seems right

You lost the morning

in the middle of the night

Remember the sun

Remember the sun

There's so much to do

That ain't gettin' done

The hopes of the people

are under the gun

Remember the sun

Oh remember the sun

Well... Alright, alright.

Hey, you okay?

You're lucky. Come here.

You're fine.

You scared me.

Here. Put this on.

Is that where you live?

Come on, bud, come on.

You cold?

What's your name?

Is your mom home?

Not talkin', huh?


- Sara?

- Tomas.

- Yeah?

- Maybe you were right...

Uh, I can't really talk right now.

- Something happened.

- Uh, are you okay?

- Every thing's fine.

- Okay.

Um... listen...

I know that lately I've been edgy.

And you've been so kind.

I just want you to know that...

that everything's gonna be different.

Okay. Okay.

- Uh, I'll wait to eat with you.

- Yeah. I'll be home soon.

Okay, bye.

Alright, Christopher.

Everything's gonna be fine, okay?

Did you make those snowmen?

You do it alone or with a friend?

That one's kind of pudgy.

Alright, let's go.

Come on.

Wanna ring the bell?

Hi, uh, we almost had

a little accident down at the road.

Uh, everything's alright, but...

I think Christopher got a little scared.

Where's Nicholas?

Where's Nicholas?


Would you want us to come in with you?

I'm so sorry, Mr. Eldan.

Don't blame yourself.

I'll contact you if we need

any other additional information.

I wish you all the best.


- Tomas!

- Uh! Let me sleep.

What's going on?

- I'm sleeping.

- No, no, no!

Not here. You'll freeze to death.

Come on, come inside.

What's going on? I need to know.

There was an accident.

With... with the car.

I ran over someone.

- Oh, no.

- I wanna sleep.


What happened to that person?

I don't wanna talk.

It's not getting any better.

- What?

- You and me.

We have to stop pretending.

Can't this wait?

- I can't do it anymore.

- You've just been through something so...

I can't do it any longer, Sara.

What do you mean?

I mean I don't wanna do it any longer.

Neither of us is fine.

And we're not gonna be,

and you know it.

I... Let's not talk about this, not now.

We want different things in life.

Look, I, I just wanna write.

You want kids.

I don't.

It's that simple.

We just want different things.

Thank you for coming.

I gave 'em your number.

I didn't have anyone else.

That evening...

I know what happened

that evening, Tomas.

It's a small town.

You should have told me the whole thing.

It's not your fault. It was an accident.
