What is this disgusting?

And you call her dinner?

I work all day for you

and what do you do?

- Yes, you do it with that b*tch!

- Excuse me, what did you say?

If you have something to say, speak aloud!

And then look at this house!

All those colors and those

sheets on the floor!

- Where's Tom? Tom!

- I'm going to look for him.

Tommy! Are you in here?

- Mom!

- Come here.

Do not worry, we will not punish you.

- Stop hiding!

- Tom, your father wants to talk to you.

I told you to go out!

I said to come out!

Get out of there, little monster!

- What are you doing there?

- You lied to me '?

I told you to collect everything,

but you never listen!

He lied to you, so what?

- You will always be a failure!

- Stop Please! No!

That's enough!

Tom, how did you get these bruises?

I fell while playing.

- And these signs on the arms?

- I do not know.

Open this door!

Exit immediately from here!

And why should I?

- Come here, I'll blow you up!

- I hate you!

My God, I kill him!

You will not hurt me anymore!

Never again!

I'm sorry...


I did not want to, I'm sorry.





Let me in.

Are there any messages for me?

Watch out for the cigarette!

There is this.

This is from the hospital.

The hospital called you

to make an appointment.

The pharmacy wants you

to go get the medicine.

The boss said that if you do not pay

by tomorrow, he'll throw you out.

I have a check, it's from the hospital.

Can you change it?

If you want to change it, go to

the bank and do not break up!

I told you to be careful

with that cigarette!




I lost control for a moment.

Now everything is fine.

That's just crazy!

I have to check myself.

John, can you let me in?

Hi Tom.

Be good, Tom.

How old are you in this design?

Seven or eight.

And where are you?

Under the sink.


Comfortable? Under the sink?

My parents could not find me

and if they did not find me, they

would not beat me. I was safe.

Yes, safe. Not comfortable.

Yes, safe! Not comfortable.

Are you safe now?

I have no violent reactions for some time.

I feel that there is hesitation.

NO, no long-time

violent reaction.

Maybe because now

you feel safer.

- I never feel as safe as I would like.

- This does not happen to anyone.


Let's talk about your future.


Where you live now '?

I decided to live in a house.

In a kind of pension '?


You know that the mandatory sessions

will be finished next week.

What do you think about it '?

All right.

I believe I have been leaning

on you for too long.

Wait, do not go so strong!

Wait up!

Black with black

it is green

with green.



- Julie!

- I'm up here!


- Where are the guys '?

- I have Holly

and Neil is pulling

Rudolph out of the car.

Come here baby!

Do you like here?

- Come on, I'll show you the rest.

- Come on, baby!

Come on, baby!

- Do you like '?

- Yes, a lot.

- Neil, then?

- I do not like.

- Never ask for the opinion of the children!

- Why do we have to come here?

Because your father did

not like your friends!

- Mom, stop!

- Look, high technology! Hello!

- I can try?

- Sure.


- Ready?

- There's another one in the living room.

- Where is it '?

- In the living room, throughout the house.

- Also in the bathroom?

- Yup.

Get out!

Come here.

Come here.

- Beautiful!

- Yes, it's big.

- It is huge!

- Here we go!

Neil, take Rudolph.

- What dinner?

- Get the pizza.

- I'm coming with you!

- Ok. How do you like pizza?

- With salami.

- And you '?

- Cheese!

- Then let's half and half!


Hi, Rudy!

Here it is.


What was it?


I heard a noise.

The big houses are full of strange

noises, you'll get used to it.




And Holly.

And you, Mr. Fudolph,

you'll be on the veranda.


- Hi dear.

- Hi, honey.

- I have a presentation tomorrow.

- It's our first night here!

The bank must decide tomorrow

whether to invest in this deal.

I'm sorry.

In a little while 'arrival.


What is that '?

A welcome gift.

- I did not get you anything.

- Do not do anything, open it.

Wait up.

A toast. At the new house!

At the new house!

You did it, did not you?

- Do you like '?

- Yes, it's nice.

Really cute.

Tomorrow or Thursday

they come to disinfect.


Do not worry, I thought about it.

You're really efficient.

Thank you.

Dear, I think we should sleep.

Come on, Julie! I told you thank you.

I know, it's just that

it's been a long day.

All right.

Come here u.

Hello. Come on, come here.


What's up, honey?

A man scared me.

A man '?

You must have dreamed it, love.

Do you want to sleep with me?

Rudolph 1.

- I can not find.

- He does not want to be with us anymore!

Someone will read the plate and bring it

back to us. What do you think about it '?

We did not have to come here!

- Did you see the briefcase?

- He was on the desk.

He was there last night,

but where is he now?

- Hi, George.

- Hello.

- How are you?

- Good.

- Who had put her on the ground?

- Hello. Beautiful house!

- A paradise!

- How nice to see you!

I always say:
"If you start from

the top, then it's all down!"

The stairs are from that side.

Make them all out!

Honey, I go.

I'll be late tonight.

- Hi dear.

- Hello guys.

Hi Dad.
