-Yes. There's seven more.

There's a couple of girls.

I need two cups of blue.

- Manolo!

- -That's it.

- Manolo!

Keep your f***ing hoods on!


Take your clothes off!

Turn the f*** around!

You find a shoulder,

and you walk. Walk!


If you can pay,

you can leave.

Two thousand,

eight hundred dollars.

That's what it costs you

to leave.


I paid the coyote,

the guy that brought us

to the Van in the desert.

- I paid him in nuevo laredo.

- -Oh.

See, that was your crossing fee.

For him to get you here,

to the u-s-of-a.

And here you are.

Nothing is free here.

Two thousand,

eight hundred dollars,

and the longer you stay,

the more you have to pay!

Nothing is free here.

And just one more thing:


F*** with me.

I could kill you

and dump your body

out into the street.

And no one would

even know who you were,

or who they could call to ask.

Welcome to America.

Come on!

-No, no, no...

-It's okay.

--Alright then.

Easy. There you go.

No, no, no...

It's okay. Shh.

-I'm pregnant.



We've been working

real f***ing hard.


What did you come down here for?

Get the f*** outta here.

How sweet...

How the wheels roll around!

Congratulations, guys!

It's gonna be

a great opportunity

for anybody

who wants to buy your house.

How are you? Thanks for coming.

These are the owners.

We're gonna look at the house.

You'll love it. It's fabulous.

Come on this way.

You like it?

There you go.

This is who you get.

The boss says, no more

blue juice for the ladies...

Unless they don't comply.

Blue juice, huh?

You must've made

one hell of an impression...



You displease Kay, here,

and I'll have to re-assess

our boundaries.

When the food's cooked,

you'll bring it to them.



You sleep?


Did you hear anything

about where they keep the women?


Feels like it's gonna

dry up on you, doesn't it?

You think you're gonna find

an exit sign we didn't see,

- or something?

Let's go! Follow me!

Elena! Elena!

That was her.

I saw her hands.

She's in the house.

Your wife is here?

I have a wife too.

She hasn't heard from me

in three weeks, now.

He was traveling with her...

We're from two towns

really close together...

Just north of antig--

there was a lot of us in Mexico.

Look, we don't have time

for this.

No time for what, compadre?

Where are you goin'?

There's nothing

you can do right now.


Eat that bread.

Might be all the food

you get today.


That's what my brother told me.

There'd be these restaurants

here called buffets.


He's been here

the longest.

I can't get much out of him.

Can't get much out

of anybody, really.

The first day I got here,

there was this one guy,

he was a bit of a talker.

There was an argument in here,


The thugs came in fast,

roughed up a couple of guys,

then they took him out.

We never saw him again.

I don't have money

to give these people.

I think...

If you cry now...

You won't have enough for when

they drag you to the basement.

What's in the basement?


In this house,

nobody fucks around, you got it?

Come on.

Can you pay?

Seor, my wife was here.

Is she okay?

Yes, your wife is here.

And you're gonna have

to pay for her too.

She's okay?

Seor, we don't have your money!

We spent most of our money

before we got to nuevo Leon.

The rest of it was stolen when

we were riding on the trains.

Maybe you can

borrow it from someone.

A cousin, aunt, uncle, brother.


Seor, why us?

You know who we are.
