Room 207?

Are you a relative?

Visiting hours end at 8:30.

You'll hear the announcement.

You can use those elevators.

Here she comes!




Are you the birthday boy?

Who is this?

Listen up.

There's nothing to it.

First, the 60 euros.

Second, nobody touches anything.

Except me.

You wanna touch, you pay more.

And nobody goes near my backpack.

And by nobody I mean nobody, okay?

Let's celebrate your birthday.

If life gives you...

...more than five reasons to go on.

If life gives you...

...more than five corners to sleep in.

If life gives you...

...more than five million to die... strain yourself.

Night and day. strain yourself.

Night and day.

If life gives you...

...more than five bastards

to put up with.

If life gives you...

...more than five lessons

to not go on... strain yourself.

Night and day. strain yourself.

Night and day.

If life gives you...

...more than five reasons to go on.

If life gives you...

...more than five corners to sleep in. strain yourself.

Night and day. strain yourself.

Night and day. strain yourself. strain yourself.

- How's it going?

- Better.

Having lunch with your mother?

And give me some pessaries.

And four twelve-packs.


Was it Canesten?


Zero kilos. You're so light.

That means you're an angel.

You have to put a coin in

for it to work.

It's from a local store.

What does it say?

"With love. " The fourth one.

Must be a neighborhood fan.

- Let me see the handwriting.

- Wine?

He could be from the senior center.

What about the guy

from the 5th floor?

Him? He hardly says hi

when he sees me.


Someone older.

Maybe they have the wrong address.


Mother can't have an admirer?

Of course she can.

She can have as many as she wants.

You get them,

that's what matters.

We exist because someone

thinks about us, not vice versa.

Someone said that,

I don't remember who.

Someone wise.

Wise and corny.

Aren't you going to answer?

What if it's for me?

For you?

It's my cell phone.

Since they keep ringing...

It might be important.

How's your teaching?

She's not teaching anymore.

I'm the principal now.


That's good, right?


Since 2 years ago.

Really? Congratulations.

Maybe it's Dad.

Sending the flowers.

Why not? Maybe he felt guilty.


If he hadn't died 3 years ago.

That's not certain.

You identified him at the morgue.

I didn't look that close.

I said yes without looking.

Mother, please.

We didn't check his DNA.

With DNA you can tell

who it is right away.

Dad is dead...


Maybe he ran off with a woman

and doesn't dare come back.

Hence the flowers.

To say he's sorry and thinking

of me, without saying it.

Your father was always a coward,

Cayetana. A good man...

...but a coward.

Answer the phone!

I get nervous

when you don't answer!

Who is this?



No. Why?

So they say.



100. The works, 100.

Blowjob, 50.

Anything except in the ass.

As long as it takes,

half an hour.

Half an hour, tops.

Who is it?


What else can I say?

At Vidal's on Providencia.

They're the worst.

The worst, Gloria.

Since they came, this is a jungle.

They'll f*ck for 20 euros.

Some even for 15.

Blowjobs for 10, like junkies.

But guys like them.

It must be the novelty.


I only work half as much

since they came.

They have to do something.

There's no work in their countries.

Don't people f*ck there?

They must have learned somewhere.

If they were hairdressers,
