I just don't feel anything.

Since when have you felt empty?


Claire, where are you?

Claire, what happened to you?

Oh my darling, that's fantastic!

Who would've thought it would happen so soon...

Why didn't you tell papa?

Were you shocked?

But, you shouldn't be?

It's something to celebrate...


It's even got into your hair...

Come here...'s a shame I got this concert tomorrow...

...we could have had

a nice time together.

You sure you are ok?


This is ridiculous.

It's getting worse and worse.

I can't practice here anymore.

An hour ago there was a man

sniffing around here.

I thought he was a buyer at first.

When he saw me he turned and walked away.

Did he have an estate agent with him?

- No.


You feel weak?

I'll give you some pills...

There he is. That's him...

What do you think he's looking for?

- I don't know...

We should mend that fence.

There are holes in it, you know.

The airport is like a sieve:

a lot of weird types

on the loose.

I'm glad we're leaving.

You live here?

You're bleeding.

Please please listen!

Did you see little boy?

If you see him, you must tell him

he's in danger.

He's in great danger.

It wasn't for me.

I had to sedate someone,

to tend his wounds.

I suppose there was no doctor around.

Too dangerous.

And did you manage?

Patient still alive?

Are you in love?

No. Why?

I heard it happens when you fall in love

for the first time.

Did you know they broke

into Valentines recently?

Just like that, on broad daylight.

They broke the fence,

and there was blood in the swimming pool.


Well something like that...

A blood trail.

Here come the mongols

for their morning run.

We've done it:
the house is sold.

- To the pilot?

He doesn't care about the noise.

He just wants me to repair the fence.

Do you have anything in the shed?


Does mom already know?

I'm going to fetch her from the airport.

You want to come too?

How long will you be gone?

- A couple of hours, that's all.

They're not my real parents.

I was abandoned.


What does it mean?

Ageesh nice?

Claire, we're home!


Claire, where are you?

Oh, there you are.

- I was out in the garden.

Did you tie him up?

What were you doing in the garden?

I was getting my things out of the shed.

You asked me to didn't you?

And he was getting in the way,

so I tied him up.

It's the most beautiful house in the city,

they say...

...and they made me pay for that!

I like the panelling...

This is Claire's room. Do you like it?

- What do you think, Claire?

It's a bit old...

...the second floor...

- Who's that strange man?

- You didn't tell me about the stags.




Where are you now?

In the garden. In the back in the garden,

by a big tree...

Are you there alone?

- No.

My mother is there,

by the rabbit box.

What's she doing there?

I don't know. She's just standing there.

She doesn't look at me...

I feel powerless...

Why did you have to do that?

We loved that dog.

You can't stay here anymore.

I'll have to bring you somewhere.

They're after you.

Bad men.

Wait here.


Let me have a look...

It looks as if someone has hit him.

God knows why.

Poor Jonas...

I need to go see Daphne.


I really want to see Daphne,

I need to see Daphne.


Hello. I'm Daphne Schmidt,

and this is my sister Ageesh.

Schmidt? Schmidt?

We may not be on the list.

But my father called...

Who did he call?

- I don't know. We were late, that's why...

Can she sit inside?

- Yes, yes of course.

It's alright, we'll add you to the list...

Schmidt, Daphne and...


- That's an unusual name.

It's alright, you can pay inside.

You Ageesh.

Me Daphne.

We sisters.

Do you want anything to eat or drink?

- Hmm... no, thank you.

You only have these clothes?

Yes, it all went so quickly.

So we didn't have time to...

We have some spare clothes.

If you don't mind me asking...

what's the matter with her?

Deformities on her spine.

She can't talk.

She's backward.

She had a couple of operations,

but it didn't help.

It's a birth defect.

What did she say?

- She said her name.

Come with me, I have something for you.

Here you are, these should fit.

Ageesh doesn't want anyone

to see her wounds.

God sees them all my child.

In his eyes we're all the same. Come on.

Let me do it. She gets aggressive

if anyone touches her.

You Ageesh, me Daphne. We're sisters.


There you are, it fits. It suits you.

What did she say?

She said thank you.

May the healing of our lord Jesus Christ

be with you in mind, body and spirit.

Where is her cross?

Is she alright?

This is to help her sleep...

Is this the first time that she has...

- She's a little shocked.

Mentally she's only a little girl,

but her body...

Then God may have brought

something out in her.

That's right.

It will be ok my child.

Do you live there, in Luxembourg?

What a coincidence, we were just

going for a ride.

We love doing that in the morning.

Doesn't he speak French?

It's not a he. She's my sister.

- Really?

I thought it was a boy.

Excuse me, but you're going the wrong way.

I know, I know. This is a short cut.

Why do you drive so fast?

Why not?

Maybe he likes it.

But I don't.

Stop. Please stop.

Please, tell him to stop!

Ah... Come stand next to him.

You're a lovely couple.
