Oh, my God.


[noise from above]


[distant screams]

[shuffling feet]


Look, I've been trying to reach her

for a couple of days

so if she contacts you,

can you have her give me a call?

Alright, thanks.

[phone rings]




Tim, yeah.

Sorry to bother you.

I'm kind, I need your help.


What is it?

My friend, Danielle.

I haven't been able to

reach her for weeks.

I've called everyone she knows

and no one has heard from her.

Is she missing or not

wanting to be found?

I don't know.

I'm just really worried.

Alright, I'll, uh...

I'll look into it.


Her name is Danielle Hampton.


[woman] And just answer

as best you can, okay?


There's a pen.

And you can go in that room.




Sign right there at the bottom.

Good luck.

Thank you.


Big day today?


Come on.

I'll walk you out.

Any word from Danielle?

- No, nothing.

- Huh.

- She'll turn up.

- I hope so.


Here you go.

Oh! I almost forgot.

You'll need these.


I'm really proud of you, Jackie.

Thank you.

Clean slate, fresh start.

The rest is up to you.

Come here.

Good luck.

I'll see you at the meeting this week?

Of course.

[elevator dings]




She wouldn't leave this behind.

[knocking at door]



[siren wailing]

[woman moaning with pleasure]

Oh, yeah!






[heavy breathing]

Oh, yeah.

Oh, yeah.


Oh, yeah.



Oh, God. Yeah.

Yeah, yeah.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

[shower turns on]

[close noise]





[elevator dings]


[distant voices speaking]


I needed the cash.


Prostitution is a crime.


You can't just evict me.


It's all your own fault.


So after five years, that's it?

No 30-day notice?


You know the rules.

F*ck the rules!

You are so full of shit.

Oh, no need

to make it personal, my dear.

F*ck! Bitch needs to get laid.

Oh, I must apologize for her behavior.

Don't be frightened, Jacquelin.

I'm Eleanor Mudgett.

Please come in.

I have made it a custom,

old fashioned, though it may seem,

to meet every new tenant we take in.


Many years ago,

I had to figure out what to do

with this lovely old building.

I am on the board

of many rehabilitation centers

and outreach programs

throughout the city.

So I figured that

I should use Havenhurst

to help others.

Give them a place to find their balance

and re-enter the world.

Don't be shy, dear.

You must have questions.

Um... my friend, Danielle Hampton,

- she lived here.

- Yes.

Is there a reason why I was

given her old apartment?

Oh, it's just a matter of timing, dear.

Danielle and Jason just happened to be

the last tenants to vacate.

I was just hoping that you

might know where they went.

No, I'm afraid not.

One of the drawbacks of not requiring

a security deposit.
