(slow soft music)

(birds softly chirping)

- Hey, buddy, what's up?


What do you say we turn

that frown upside down?

- It's a little early

for that, isn't it?

- Are you kidding me?

Out here it's never too

early for a cold one.

(beer can pops)

All right, let's go for a walk.

Might do you some good.

Come on.

(birds chirping)

You look like sh*t.

- (laughs) Thanks.

- You're welcome.

Get enough sleep?

- Rough night.

- Nightmares back again?

- Never left.

This one was a little different,

but they always end

the same with her in...

Look man, we don't have

to keep doing this.

- Yes, we do, it's why I'm here.

Man, you've got to do something

about those dreams of yours.

- Tried.

They're just getting

harder and harder to shake.

- Then move on.

(slow soft music)

- I can't do that,

Alex, you know that.

The tree over there is where

I met Anna for the first time.

Down here by the water is

where we had our first kiss.

This is her home, our home.

I tried to leave, but I can't.

It's just,

I can't.

(birds chirping)

(slow soft music)

- [Brett] You always

did love the sunsets.

- Every sunset is beautiful.

- [Brett] Remember that

day down by the lake?

It was a lot of fun, good times.

- Of course I do.

Simpler time, when

we were happy.

- What do you mean?

We're happy now, aren't we?

(slow soft music)

I had a dream about

you last night.

Been dreaming about

you a lot lately.

What do you suppose that means?

You were out in the lake

by yourself, rowing.

I was calling and

calling for you,

but you wouldn't answer.

I don't know, maybe

you couldn't hear me

all the way out there.

I mean it was a

dream, after all.

And then you turned

to me and you waved.

And like that (snaps)

you were gone.

It's hard to believe

just how quickly

the darkness creeps in

all the way out here.

- [Anna] The night will fall.

- What did you say?


No, no!

(frantic panting)

(soft piano music)

(phone ringing)

- Hey, buddy, everything okay?

- I, um, sorry for

calling so late.

- It's okay man,

I'm still working.

What's up?

Brett, you there?

- I'm here.

You were right.

I need to get away

from this place.

- You want me to

make the call or not?

- You really think I

should go to Sofia?

- I do.

It's an amazing city

and with your background

you're a perfect

fit for the gig.

Go try it for a few weeks.

If you don't like

it, come back here

and we'll get back

to drinking beer,

figure something else out.



- Who's the client?

- Let's make the

call and find out.

(birds trilling)

- Make the call.

- [Alex] You ready?

- I'm ready, I'll call

you when I get there.

- Ya sure, and remember,

you don't like it,

we go to plan B.

- What's plan B?

- There is no plan B, now

get the f*** out of here.

- Take care of her

for me, all right?

- Yeah.

(engine starts)

(intense dramatic music)

(plane engine roaring)

(plane tires screeching)

(speaks foreign language)

- Ah, American?

- Yeah, Los Angeles.

- I, I speak American.

I mean, I speak English,

but you know what I mean.

Where do you learn

to speak Bulgarian?

- My wife.

I've lived in Varna for

the last three years.

A little rusty though.

Haven't, don't really

speak it much anymore.

(slow intense music)

(speaks foreign language)

(soft eerie music)

(doors creaking)

- It survived the bombing.

- Excuse me?

- The building.

You were wondering why

it looks so out of place

in a street like this.

- Okay.

- It was the only

one that survived.

- The rogue missile

back in '99 hit here?

- Oh, no, that was further out.
