Synopsis: When the bomb comes the first thing we do is to run away, later we remember and think of everything we left behind. We did not bid farewell to our homes, memories, photos, identities and life that passed. It is about how homes haunt the life of the souls that were living in them, as much as they themselves haunt the houses.

Uh, Nick Di Santo.

I'm here to see my mom.


Take the stairs to the second

floor, and someone

will meet you there.


Can't we go out on the grounds?

I mean, she wants to be private,

can't it be out in

the sunshine or under

a tree somewhere?

Telling you, she never goes out.

In all the years I've been here,

I've never even seen

here in the visitors' room.

Look, she's my mom.


I haven't talked to

her in years.

Yeah, she did get made up

today just to see you.

Look, you get her to go out,

I'll be happy to take you.

Ms. Di Santo?

Your boy's here.

What have you got her on?

She hasn't been medicated today.

Bang on the door when

you're done.


You can look at me.

I'm not sure I can.

Yes you can.


Look at me.

Oh my.

You look like him.

Why would you say that?

You said you didn't

remember him.

You said it was like trying

to remember a dream.

You said you didn't

know who he was.

Do you know who my father is?

What else do you know, Mom?


Mom, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.


No, no, no...

I won't.

Don't, don't.

I won't.



look, I'm not...

I'm not gonna touch you, OK?

I won't.

Then don't.

Do you... do you want me

to get the orderly?

You want your medication

or something?

I'm supposed to tell you

about your father.

And today is the day that

I promised I would.

Wait, you prom... you

promised who?

The things in the wall.

They listen all the time, and

then they tell me what to do.

And Nicky, today is the day

that they told me I had to

tell you about him.


I'm not...

I won't.

I'm warning you.

Oh, Nicky.


He's coming for you.



Open the fucking door!

Your father...

I only remember a nightmare!

So what did she want to say?

She wanted to let me know

that she's still crazy.

So no birthday present, huh?

Let's go find one.

Let's go drink one.

Go, go, go.

Yeah, come on.

That's the guy, right

over there.

Can I buy you guys a beer?


Is that Nick Di Santo?

What if it is?

You know him?

What if I do?

Can he do it?

You know what?

I don't care.

That is not what I said and

that is not what you said.

Hey, uh, hit me again.

You know what?

I'm through.


No, I'm done.

I'm hanging up.

You got a number for a cab?

Anything I can do?

Bet I got you beat.

For worst day ever.

There's no way you could

beat this one.

What, did your dog

die or something?

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday!

Yeah, 23's kind of a big one.

You don't know?

Um, it takes 23 seconds for

blood to circulate throughout

the human body.

In every person are 23

pairs of chromosomes.

And every 23rd wave that comes

to shore is twice as long and

twice as strong as the one

that came before it.

So 23 is kind of like this,

um, magic number.

I like 23.

How about

you do it, just one time?


I just...

I want to know if you

can really do it.

Hey, what'd I say?

Do what?

What are you doing?





Are you trying

to scare away the first

girl that doesn't think

you're Frankenstein?

Well, if she's the one,

she won't run.

Do not do this.


If you were sober, you

wouldn't do this.

Hey, uh, Ronny says he'll do it.

Just go up there.

Go put your hand on him.

Touch him.


No, look, it doesn't

work that way.

I have to touch them.

That's rule one.

You can touch me all you want,

but it's not gonna work.

And rule two?

It has to be something bad,

something really bad, or I do

not see you.

There's no way to change it.

There's no information on

why or when or how...

I just see it.
