I'm home about to leave.

Okay, I'll do it right now,

but then that's it.

I'm leaving immediately.


Who is it?

This can't be happening.

I'm sorry.

Good afternoon. We're now approaching

Santa Clara airport. It's 12:00 p.m...

Welcome to Santa Clara!


- You look beautiful.

- Thanks, Dad.

- So grown up.

- You look exactly the same.

Look at my granddaughter.

Such a beautiful smile.

Beautiful brown eyes,

just like your mother.

I've got brown eyes, too.

You're a Harriman.

Look at the size of you!

We're gonna have to stop you

growing up too quick.

- How was the flight, Paul?

- Oh, it was fine.

Welcome to Colombia. You'll have

better weather here than in London.

Your boxes arrived safely

and they're waiting for you at the house.

Santa Clara was built around

the Aguas Rojas neighborhood.

It used to be a fishing village,

now it's grown into a town.

The fishing has gone.

Everyone works in the factory.

They're lovely people.

Very warm, very hard-working.

A little bit young, no?

Rules are a little different here.

So, Sarah, I have to travel

to Sao Paulo next week,

which means we have a few intense days

ahead of us at the plant.

- Great.

- Grandpa, what do you do in your factory?

We make paper.

And your mom is going to work there.

- She's going to be the boss.

- That's right!

And when you grow up,

if you're a good girl,

you can be the boss, too.

Unless you want to be a rock star.

Come on! Get out of the road!

Hey, can you open the window?

Here we are! This is your new home.

Come on, sweetie.

- What do you think?

- It's beautiful.

- It's huge. How did you find it?

- It belongs to the company.

Most executives don't bring their families

or they prefer to stay in town.

Nobody has lived here for years.

So, how is the art world

treating you, Paul?

You know, it's never gonna make me rich,

but it's all right, it's okay.

- Oh, you like it?

- It's a castle!

It is a castle! Here.

Hold it there. Gotcha!

She looks beautiful! Come here,

I want to show you something.

A big surprise for you down here.

- Well, it definitely doesn't suck.

- No, it does not.

It's amazing!

Don't jump!

Thank you, Jordan.

This is all very nice. Thank you.

It's my pleasure.

How do you like Hannah's house?

Yeah, it's great.

She's going to love it. Thank you.

I meant to tell you, the help will be here

tomorrow if you need a hand with anything.

Okay. Okay.

I'm heading off now,

but I'll come back tomorrow.

Take you into town, if you want

to pick up some supplies or...

- Okay.

- Thanks, Dad.

Okay. Bye, Hannah!

- Bye, Grandpa! Thank you!

- You're welcome!

Not sure why, but I thought

he was gonna hate me like...

a little less in Colombia.

Just like a little bit.

- He doesn't hate you.

- He hates me.

- We're going to be happy here.

- Of course. Of course, we will.

Dad, I can't sleep.

This room is too big.

- Okay, let's play our game.

- Okay.







- Elevator.

- Good.


- Turtle.

- No, no, no. Rabbits.









Good night, sweetie.

Can you close that?

Of course.

This is the central market. You can find

almost everything you'll need in here.

It's especially crowded these days

because of the celebration.

What's all this about?

What are they celebrating?

It's called

"La Fiesta de los Nios Santos".

Why are they putting on those bandages,

Grandpa? Are they sick?

They're dressing up, honey.

Happens every year.

They celebrate something that happened

a long, long time ago.
