From a House on Willow Street




- Hey, it's me. I'm outside.


Daddy's little Princess.

- So you want me

to get in close?

Look for a way in?

Maybe check for an alarm system?

-No, don't worry,

they have an alarm system.

-Don't worry?

-Ade, trust me.

It gets a lot worse than just

a f***in' alarm system.

-This needs to be surgical.

No mistakes.

We gotta cover all the angles.

-It's gonna take time

to plan this.

-Six weeks,

that's what we've got.

-You can't rush this.

-We got six weeks

or this doesn't happen.

-If you can't do it,

tell us now

so I can find someone who can.

-All I'm saying is that

I've been doin' this

for long enough to know that

there are only two outcomes

to this little situation

of ours.

One is where

we plan this properly.

The second is where

we don't get caught.

-Look, none of us are here

because we wanna be.

Okay, this is the last chance

we're gonna get

at a normal f***in' life.

We've taken things this far

because we all understand

the risks involved.

-They're completely


- Yeah,

that's the first mistake.

We can't assume anything

on this job.

-He's got access to diamonds.

-A lot of diamonds.

-Owns a chain of distributors.

Has access to all the safes

all the time.

-Expect the unexpected,

that's all I'm saying.

-Coming from a guy

that's been in prison twice.

Third time, they throw away the

key. You know that, don't you?

-Yeah, we're gonna learn

from your mistakes.

-That's why we're cousins.


that's a zippy new hairdo

you got there, goldilocks.

You hiding from someone?

Are you running away

from something?

-Sometimes, all you can do

is run, mark.

-I think we can all agree

on one thing.

The sooner we get this

over with, the better.

- This thing has to go down

without a glitch.

It needs to tick-tick

like a Swiss watch.

-You boys all good?

-Apart from freezing my balls

off, I'm just peachy.

-You have balls, James?

Turn right here.

Hey, protection only.

-Yeah, for protection only.

-Ade, take the front.

James, take the back.

-Yeah, got it.

-Okay, you ready?



-Let's do this.



What the f***?

That's right.

Do what I say

and I won't hurt you.

-Go, go!

-Ade, lock this b*tch down!


-Who's there?

-Remind me to scrap the we'll


part of the ransom video.

What the f***'s going on here?

-We didn't do this.

Stick to the plan,

no matter what.

-Well, something's not right.

Looks like we rescued her

from that house.

-Stick to the plan.

-Drink up.

We have a busy night.


-What did you say?

-You should really let me go.

It'll be better for all of you.


Please just let me go.

I haven't seen your faces.

I don't know how many

of you there are. Please.

-This may be the last footage

anyone ever sees of you.

Make it matter.

-F***ing wiring.

-Mr. and Mrs. Hudson,

good evening --

- it's a sick joke, mom!

Don't believe them!

-You know the rules here.

The quicker we get this done,

the quicker you go home.

Take two.

Mr. and Mrs. Hudson,

we have your daughter --

-don't pay them, daddy!

They're in over their heads.

-Hey, hey, stop. I got this.

Leave it.


You wanna know a secret?

You're gonna make it

out of this unharmed.

Okay? This..

It's all for show.

The last thing we wanna do

is hurt you.

Now I know you love

your dad very much.

He's done bad things

to some people.

Taken things

that don't belong to him.

Now your daddy's rich.

What we're taking,

he'll make up very quickly.

This is just what we have to do

to get the money.

It'll all be over

very, very quick if you behave.

Rehearsal's over, okay?



-Mr. and Mrs. Hudson,

here is your daughter.

She's having a really bad night.

We want the 300 carats

of diamonds

you keep

in your various premises.

This is a time-sensitive

matter for us.

- Mom, dad, please do

what they say.

Give them the diamonds, please!

I wanna come home!

I wanna come home, please!

-Send it. I'll make the call.

No one's answering!

-Try again.

- The number you have reached

is not in service.


-Try their cell phones.

-Ade, you're certain

these are the right numbers?

-Yeah, I checked them

over and over.


-You wanna wait it out?

Because you're the one who said

this thing needed

to be slick, quiet

and most importantly, fast!

-I know what I f***ing said!

-Haze, you need to stay calm.

-This is me calm.

You guys need to go back

to the house.


-No? That's it?

You wanna bring somethin' else

to the table here?

-That's not the plan.

-Yeah, it is the plan.

It's called plan b.

-What if it's a trap?

-They don't know

what they're tryin' to trap.

We haven't made contact yet!

There's no way

they've watched the video

and gone to the cops

in the last three minutes.

-We can't babysit this girl

for days, alright?

People are gonna know

that I'm up to something.

I've got a court date

in three days

and I need to be out

of the f***ing country.

I need to be in Panama.

This deal needs to go down

like we planned.

-Then you f***in' go.

-I'm with you, cuz.

-Just scope it out.

Stay in touch.

-You hear anything,

you let us know.

-Yeah, I gotcha.


You be careful, okay?


-The wiring in this place

is f***ed up.

-Just go.

No one's afraid of the dark.

-Maybe you should be.

-It's just a power trip.

I don't think

the system's fried.

-How brave are you feelin'?

-I'm not.

-Look, getting the scanner up

and running is top priority.

I need you to check

the breaker switch

while I reboot the system.

Remember that foster home

we had?

The ones that never paid

their electric bill?


-Well, it's just like that.

The switch

is in the basement though.

-Of course, it is.

- It'd be great

if those two could do

some of the dirty work

every now and then.

- Yeah, man, this is

a f***-up!

-Keep your eyes on the road.

Let's at least try not to kill

another family member.


-That's a good girl.

You just stay there.

-You should really let me go.

Or you're all gonna die tonight.

- Your dad's smart.

He'll get you out of this.

-how do you know that song?

I used to sing that

when I was a kid.

-That's not all I know.

I also know

why you kidnapped me.

Why you chose me.

But it's not gonna

bring them back.

I know that your parents died

in that fire.

-You shut up.

-And that you feel


Responsible because you lived

and they died.

-Don't you think for a second

that I can't become the bad guy.

For the right reasons

I'll become your worst

f***in' nightmare.


-This place stinks.

You smell that before?


-Hey, same as before.

We find the parents

and get to the bottom of this.

Sneaky f***ers.

You think you're safe

by hidin' in the basement.

We've got your daughter.

- Why our little girl?

Why this house?

Why our little girl?

Why this house?

Why our little girl?

Why this house?

Why our little girl?
