Think about it.

Take care.


I'm so tired!

Shall I help you?

Thank you.

I put on some music.

- Where's Fabrizio?

- He's out. Come in.

No, I'm walking the dog.

Where did he go now?


We'll have lunch tomorrow!

By the way, I met Paola.

Are they already there?

Yes, and they've already invited

us for lunch tomorrow!

And Doggiedog?

I took him out and gave him food.

Now he's happy.

He's a good dog.

What did he do?

- He jumped on me.

- What if I do the same?

It wouldn't be a bad idea.




- Delicious, this cheese!

- My ancestors were certainly shepherds!

You never say no

to a drink, right?


How do you like it?

- It's very good.

- A client of Trentino sent it to me.

- Rich, really rich!

- I haven't seen a lire yet.

Only wine!

They invited us one evening.

The worst dinner of my life.

They only talked about football,

about players...

"This team has done that..."

Match fixed. What a bore!

- I'd have thrown them out.

- She's kidding!

She thinks I'm dumb!

I brought Giulietta to my last

job meetings.

- Who's that?

- Tell him.

Miss Big-tits, his secretary.

It was she who chose her,

not me.

Just missing that you f*** her

and say it's my faulth!

- You'll never change!

- So you choose his mistresses?

- She also counts them.

- Of course.

- You still work at the refuge?

- Of course.

You can't imagine the violence

these women have to endure.

They should take revenge.

- You come along tomorrow?

- To the village.

Let's do a little race.

Thank you. Goodbye.


My love!


He's so cute!


Look how he walks.

Come on...

Be careful!

- Well, see you tonight.

- I don't know, let's call.

Let's go.

You come from London

and stay at Flaminia?


you'd be here in three hours.

But it's her birthday!

Well, take her with you.

But be here before the cake.

Wait, I'll call you back.

What's going on?

What happened to you?

You know that road, where

the prostitutes use to be?

- There was a child.

- Whom are you talking about?

I passed by and saw

how this guy beat her.

Calm down please

and explain.

I came home with Paola

after the races.

I saw this girl of 16 or 17

and this guy who beat her.

He beat her in the face

and laughed.


I drove Paola home, she isn't yet

out of her own bullshit,

and went back there

to see how she was.

I found her by the roadside

puking her guts out.

I didn't know what to do.

- Shall I call the police?

- What will the police do?

Someone from your refuge then,

Father Germano.

- Or that girl...

- Francesca.

- It's her field.

- I don't know...

She's so yong, a little girl.

I don't know,

tell me what I should do.

Investing in oil?

Go ahead, but take Futures.

What do you want to say?

- Host a whore...

It's simply crazy.

And maybe her choice.

His choice?

She's just a little girl.

A little girl who knows life.

Are these fools who let their husband

beat them not enough for you?

They aren't fools,

there are other reasons.

Want an advice?

Send some SMS for

Uganda and Mozambique,

and give yourself a good conscience

for a few cents.

Well, I'll leave now.

Please don't tell Fabrizio.

It was just such an idea.

I won't. Bye dear.

Maybe some nice truck driver

falls in love and kidnapps her.

And they lived happily

and had many children!

Hi, Fabrizio.

Are you hungry, honey?

- Talk about it quietly.

- Yes let's be quiet!

And close our eyes

what you are so good at.

- Many words and little action.

- That's not true.

Like during the protests.

I was fighting and you,

you came as a mediator.

- Do you realize what you ask for?

- Do you realize she's a child?

I'm sorry Susanna,

I believe you,

but we can't try to solve

all the problems of the world.

I see, it's just how it is,

nothing can be done. Right?

I can't!

I can't stand the idea

of all those hands on her,

- Of all those guys f***ing her!

- Okay!

- Okay, we'll think about it.

- Really?

Yes, it's okay.

It's not just a small business,


I know.


- You haven't changed your mind?

- I'll go.

I told you that I'll go.

Don't you think she'll be afraid

of coming with you in the car?

No, she won't be afraid

getting into the car.

I meant...

something else.

Okay, jump in.

Turn here.

- No, I'm only there.

- I just drive you in...

We're going to my home,

my wife will explain.

- He will kill you!

- But I want to help you.

No, don't do that...

No, don't call...

- Leave it.

- Let go of me!

- Let go of me!

- Stop it!

Don't you debate!

What are you doing?

Are you crazy?

They'll kill you!

- I won't harm you!

Stay there, don't move.

- What a mess!

- Why?

But what do think actually?

She's afraid!

A guy will come and get her.

- I'll talk to her.

- No! I decide here!

Not now.

She must calm down first.

We can't leave her now,

she thinks she was kidnapped.

Wasn't she?

She called some type

and threatened me!

I can try to talk to him.

I beg you...

- Damn, do what you want.

- Alfredo!

Don't be afraid.

We want to help you. Okay?

The man who picked you up

is my husband.

May I open?

Is it okay?


- She escapes!

- I told you.

- Are you ok?

- Yes, go get her!

My wife. And here's Nadja.

You are trembling.

Want a drink?

I must go back.

Sit down.

- It's okay, I won't touch you.

- Why am I here?

We come here for holidays,

we had just arrived.

I use to do my shopping

in the village.

That day I happened to see you.

This man was with you.

I'm working in a refuge

for abused women.

I take care of girls like you.

Do you understand?


How do you feel?

Have you hurt yourself?

You may want to rest.

Shall I make you a bath?

Afterwards you can sleep

and tomorrow

it's up to you, you

can go, if you want.

Let's go.

Come with me.

Up there.

It's quite large...

The water is good.

Afterwards I show you your room.

No, wait, I go out.

The key is there.

Come here.

Do you think she will stay?

Talk to her, you too.

The mediator!

Come on.

Come and sit with us.

Come closer.

Would you like

to talk a little?

Sit down.

You want a cup of milk?

Eat something if you want.

Did you sleep well?

It's yours.

You can have it back.

Do you understand we want

to help you?

You have nothing to fear.

This is private property,

no one can come in here.

Not even the police.

Oh, one important thing...

Can someone threaten

your family?

Is someone in danger

if you don't go back there?


You can stay here until September

and then we'll see.

It won't be difficult

to find you a job.

Think of the permit.

Well, I have a friend.

Felice, who took care

of your papers.

- He often helped.

- He will take care of the papers.

- No problem.

- We will explain the situation.

He won't hesitate, be assured.

I'm still in love with my husband

as I've been for thirty years

when I met him

at the University.

I found him so cute

even if he isn't!

And you? You have a boyfriend?
