La demora


Not now.

Mum, Nani doesn't want to get up.

If he's makes me go there,

I will kick his ass out of bed.

What's wrong dad?

Are you unwell?


Let me help you.

Go outside.

I'll finish myself.

What if you fall?

Who is going to look after you

if you fracture?

Use the light blue towel.

- Can I use the toilet?

- No.

- Please!

- Can I go?

It's busy.

Did you not heard me?

You can't.

Your clothes don't match.

- I can't hold it anymore!

- Think of something else.

- Go and piss in a bottle.

- Really?

If you can't hold it anymore...

I'll bet you 20 pesos

you won't get it in.

Brenda, give him a jar.

Not that bottle!


Mum, Nani pissed in the pot!

Shut up you retard!

Mom, Nani called me a retard!

Stop being silly you two

I said a jar.

- Pass me a towel.

- I did nothing wrong.

I don't care.


- I gave you a jar.

- It's your fault


- You owe me 20 pesos.

- In your dreams.

Stop messing around!

Put on your shoes!

- Have you got my jacket?

- No.

Tell your teacher that I will send

the money for the field trip tomorrow.

It was due last week.

Leave your brother alone!

I get paid today

tomorrow I'll send the money. Ok?

Give me a break, Brenda.

It's underneath Grandpa, you retard

Fabri you're so nosey!

Let's go, it's getting late.


Shuffle a bit Grandpa.

Bye Grandpa.


Your backpack.

Make sure you hold on Fabri's hand,


Do you remember Pereira?

Of course.

It was July of 1958.

It was the month we moved in

and the house wasn't ready,

But it was ok to live in.

Shortly after,

this guy shows up to

check the chimney.

Come Dad, sit here.

How crazy!

I was the middle of winter,

freezing cold.

this guy shows up.

Puts in paper and firewood

and lights up a fire.

the result...

Filled up the whole house with smoke.

Do you remember Pereira?

He died.


Poor Pereira.

From Cancer.

You never told me.

I did, yes.

It was some time ago.

I didn't know.

You've already put in sugar.

I know...

I like it like that.

I put these ones aside.

They're faulty.

You have to check them beforehand.


you could be charged for them.

New rule.

This time you're off the hook.

This makes...

1720 for today.


Minus the advance...

This a**hole buys everything


He changes the labels

To make people think

it's all made here.

At the end of the month,

they might even dismiss some people.

I could ask to get fired.

I'll get compensation.

They won't fire you.

What they could do

is give you less hours.

That's what I'm going to do.

Don't bother, it's pointless.

This is all temp labourers


If we make a strike

they get paid double.

We, the temp labour,

Have been working here for over

5 years.

Under the table with no


And your union don't

give a sh*t about us.

No sister,

the collective agreement includes everyone.

Sister my ass!

I get off in Casal St.

Pato, do you know Casal St?

He has to get off in Hamburgo St.

By the petrol station, take

the school road and you're there.

I used to live with my wife there

long time ago.

How far is it?

Take a seat,

I'll tell you when to get off.

Your Mum is here.

Thank God!

He wasn't here when we came

back from school.

I asked everyone.

I saw him going out

but I couldn't imagine...

- At what time?

- Around 1 PM.

Granddad is not here.

Maria, your dad can't be left alone

I know.

Wait for Gonzalo to get here.

He'll take you in the car.

Where are you going in this rain?

Looking for him

Put your brothers in bed

Nani, don't be naughty

- Would you like me to come along?
