IRINA PALM by Sam Garbarski Mom, it's a bit...

Yeah, I know, it's a lovely lion that want to ruffle. Come on, let's go. We'll be late. Alright.

- Nana!

- Hi, Olly!

Hi Dad!

- Who's my boy?

- Me!

- Maggie, you shouldn't have. - Well -

?? any water?

Sarah, don't, just...

But the water's fouled here.

Please! I just forgot.



Look, how nice have you done it!

Sold it for nothing.

All these treatments and Olly's still ill.

We would never forgiven ourselves if we hadn't tried evrything.

Anyway I don't regret a thing. I'd sell up again tomorrow.

Why do you still come here?

Jane's not all bad.

Here's been something to do, I suppose. It takes my mind off things. Anyway, thanks.

I can't resist.

Oh, Jane.

You shouldn't have.

Boys love that kind of thing.

Now, listen, Beth and

Julia are forging ahead.

I know things haven't been easy but ?? bored but losing

I want to save the smell of the ?? just once

I want to see these wonderful smiles wiped out their faces.

How's Olly?

Same as... Oh, not really, he's -

He'll pull through Maggs.

Mr and Mrs Cubine, I've just examined Olly

and Olly's condition is deteriorating.

There is a new treatment, ?? at Diseases' Congress in Melbourne.

I'm referring Olly's case to a specialist consultant in London.

Last throw of the dice?


You're luck, they're going to take him.

You should leave as soon as possible.

- Leave?

- Yes, Australia.


I assumed you knew.

It's the only place that do it.

- You can't do it here?

- No.

- We have to go there?

- Yes.

Who pays?

When can we take him?

Frankly as soon as possible.

Should he stay beyond 6 weeks or so,

he'll be too weak to travel.

Who pays?

The treatment is pro bono. All other costs, hospital, travel

- et cetera will have to be merged.

- Oh, yes.

We will find the money. You knew -

Give it a rest, mom.

We can borrow.

We can nothing!

Nobody will loan us any more money, the whole village have already donated.

Shut up, shut up!

- At least mom's trying to help.

- Shut up!

Hey, look, I just want to go home, okay. Just take me home.

I can find my own way home. It's okay.

It's... go on, go on.

You already heavily in debts, you got nothing to borrow against.

I mean you got no income, you got no savings...

and you don't own your home anymore.

My grandson is dying. I need money.

You have no skills, no employment history and no qualifications.

Why is it that you think I can do for you?

Look, I'm gonna be honest. Your age is gonna be almost impossible to find you anything.

I'm sorry.

I've come about the job.

Go on, last door.

A job?

Do you know what goes on here?

Do you know what hostess does?

Sort of.

Sort of?

What kind of sort of?

Sort of things.


Things like making tea and clearing up... those sort of things.

Here the word hostess is a euphemism.

Do you know what euphemism is?


... my lawyer

explained it to me.

When you use one word for another.

For example, here, hostess means whore.

Ok. What kind of hostess are you?

Straight, kinky, many special tricks.

No, listen, here, Mr -

Pecklush. If you're good and I like you, Miky.

You are not working girl.

I bet you can't even say "f*ck". Can you?

You're too old.

Show me your hands.

Show me your hands.

I'm not going to bite.

Give me your hands.

They're pretty.

And smooth.

Very smooth. Many girls work here, their hands are ok, but -

I don't think we'll have a bit less of that - Please,

Okay, this is the deal:

men come here to see

to touch, to be toched

by women, you understand?

Can you wank men off?
