Genre: Drama

What did you see?

A chubby one.

And dark skinned.

Dark skinned?

So he was yours.

Dark skin.


Were my tits big?


You saw the father?

No. I didn't see him.

What're we going to do?

We'll figure it out.

Come here.

Come on.



Let's play again.

All right.






"The Wind in a Violin"

Daro, get up, hurry.

Ma'am, get up.



What time is it?

It's 9:
15, ma'am.

The alarm's gone off.

This piece of trash didn't go off!

Goddamn it!

-Hand me the phone.


-Here. There it is.

-I can't see a thing.

Here. Find Esteban.

There are many that say "Esteban."

Check on "Logistics."

Esteban, Logistics.


Daro is asleep.

Hello, Esteban?

One moment... One moment,

one moment.

Wake him. He has class

and can't skip it.

I'll wake him.

And he has therapy later.

Sorry. No, I've got a bad signal.

No. I'm running late

at the faculty, with Daro.

No, he fought with a teacher.

He's on edge.

I'm currently in a meeting

with the head of the program.

Still, everything's in the e-mail

I sent you last night.

I sent it to you last night.

That doesn't make sense.

No, no, no!

You know what I need, Esteban? Explain.

You understand?

Say I didn't skip it.


Can you explain to them?

You'll try?

Okay. So, you'll try.


Tell me something, Esteban,

why don't you try and go to hell as well?

Son of a bitch!

He says he'll try, he'll try.


Who is it?

Hey, Santiago. It's Daro.

Come on in.

Yes, yes, yes. I'm calm.

I'm focusing on my projects.

-Do you still smoke?


As usual, very little. Thing is,

the weed dried out, so...

I don't have pot left.

Don't have any.

Everything's coming together, right?

You have a job,

the weeds dried out...

All's better with Mom.

We just began yet you're already

talking about your mother.

This is therapy, isn't it?

It's normal to talk about mothers.


So, you're an expert?

Just a bit.

I always repeat myself.

And so do you.

I like the job you're doing.

I like it.

But I find it unfair having to pay you

when we're almost

on the same intellectual level.

Santiago, I...

I want you to feel comfortable

with me,

in case you need help

with patients.

I've been thinking.

We can get together at a bar.

And I can share my advice

with the toughest cases, especially.


Or you can record the session

on your phone

so we can hear it together.

Don't forget,

we have to think of the patient.

Think of his needs. You get me?

We can't both go on like this.

You say one thing,

and I have to correct you.

No, no, no.

We need to be a team,

and work together.

So, what do you think? Tell me.

I think...

that your mentality is very immature.



And I also think you still depend strongly

on your mother.

You also don't make use

of this space as you should.

And I strongly can't think

of how you could help me.

As a secretary?

Was I not clear?

In order to do this, Daro,

you require studies.

Yes? It requires effort.

Are we done?

Yes, we're done. Yes.

Can you hand me a big book?


-This one?

-No. Bigger than this one.

Like that.

What happened?

I just felt a little dizzy, that's all.



It's nothing. Nothing.

When's your checkup?

-I'll ask Norita.

-Yeah, ask her.

All right.



You got to look after this bump.

Got something in mind?

Seems there's an alumni reunion.

We could go.


-In a club.

A club?

Try first, it has very little salt.

You might want more.

I can't eat salt.
