Mom? Bobby?





Where are they?

Don't open the door, Kristen.

I love them, like I love you.

I really wish

That I could bring them back.

I could have

but I couldn't

help myself.

And I tried this time. I really did try.

This doesn't work.

And I wish that it did.

Uh, no.

You should go before it's too late.


I'm sorry.

I've roared through my family,

so they don't want me around no more.

My friends,

they don't want me around no more.

Sh*t, there are times

when I don't want me around no more.

I've lived in alleyways,

under bridges, and then

I found this this cool park

so big that I can get lost in it

when I want to.

Then one day,

I saw these weirdos walking

into the building across the street.

I saw it through this tunnel,

like it was magical and sh*t.

I wanted to know

what was going on in there,

and if there was any food

or maybe drugs.

So, here I am.

I wasn't expecting any of this.

But, um, maybe this is some of that

act of God type sh*t,

that I found this place

and all of you people

and all that food over there.

My name is Eddie, and I'm an addict.

Thank you.

Thanks, Eddie.

My name is Ellie, and I'm an addict.

Welcome, Ellie.

Hi, Ellie.

Sorry, I've, um

It's hard doing this all over again

in a new place.

It's okay.

It's just that I just moved here.

So here goes. Um

It started with one drink.

And then that one went into another,

and then a whole hell of a lot more.

I was an addict, but I thought,

It's no big deal. Everyone is, kind of.

But, um

I thought, This is

I can handle this. This is easy.

But then I I hurt my back.

And they gave me these pills,

these goddamn pills.

And they took the edge off

like nothing else.

Sorry, I know I'm not supposed to say

what drug, sorry.

But they took the life out of life,

which was exactly what I wanted.


my husband left me

which, to be honest,

wasn't such a bad thing.

But I lost my kids.

And, uh

at first, I didn't really care,

because I wanted the pills

more than I wanted them.

I can't believe I'm saying that right now.

Anyway, I got my kids back.

And we have a new home

and hopefully some new friends.

My Lola don't like the smell of smoke

inside the house.

We just moved here.

I heard all the noise.

There's been a lot around here lately.

Screws, nails, sharp edges.

And they say they're trying

to make this neighborhood safer.


I'm not leaving.

You're not buying me out.

We're just renting.

We just moved into our new house.

It's huge.


It's not in the best of neighborhoods.

Little sketchy.

Um, I just wanted to tell you

thank you so much for this opportunity.

I I couldn't No, I really couldn't

have done it without you.

I really appreciate it.

Yeah, the kids are doing well.

Up. Come on. Hurry.



Come on. There could be a fire.

There's no fire.

It's just my stupid brother.

I called your mother.

This has been

a pretty eventful first few days, Kyle.

You got into a fight

defaced school property,

and then another fight.

Do you have anything to say for yourself?

I didn't tag the bulletin board.

In order to stay here,

you have to want to be here.

I don't wanna be here.

Well, you won't be.

Not this week.

Wait outside for your mother.

Meegan, get in here.


You get suspended?

Yeah. Yeah.

He's an a**hole.


He's a huge a**hole.

The second fight wasn't really a fight.

It was just you getting the sh*t

beat out of you type of thing.


What'd you do?

Tagged a bulletin board.


I like your work.

Can I see?
