Listen to me.

You have to pack up

whatever you can.

And leave here right now.

What are you going

on about?


are you hurt?

Who's been--

Oh my god.

Something went wrong.

It didn't work like

it was supposed to.

Something in the

calculations... I don't know.

Please! I don't have

time to explain!

You have to go!

Stay in here.

Don't open this door

no matter what happens.

And stay quiet.

I know what you

are looking for,

But they're not here.

They're safe until I

can figure this out.


you don't have

to do this.

I just need a little

more time.

But I promise,

I'll make those better.


oh my god.

I'll get help!

No. There's not enough time.

I need...


Behind you.

The key in my pocket.

Get out of the country.

As soon as you can.

Go to your family.

Stay there.

Do it.

President Barack Obama.


...treatment isn't

working, Susan.

I had hoped...

...we would get better

results with this, but...

...we'll need to do

more tests,

And where we go

from here...

...your white count is

still incredibly--

How long?


...that really

depends on--

How long?

At this rate,


6 to 10 at the most.




Any messages?

No. It's been quiet.

Okay. Did you check

the online bins?

Yeah. Everything that needs

to be mailed is here.


I'm gonna close a little

early, so, you can go.

What did the doctor say?

Nina, you can go.

Looking for anything

in particular?

I dunno.

Does this stuff work?

It depends on what

you need it for.

And if you believe in it.

What about miracle cures?

You got any of those?



These -- These won't

perform any miracles,


They'll give you some comfort if

that's what you're looking for.

Well, I have pills for that.

C'mon, where are the

magic rocks,

Or whatever it is you're

supposed to have here?


I sold my last bag of fairy

dust about an hour ago.

This was a mistake.

I'm sorry.

Look, if you tell me

why you're here,

I could probably help

you a little better.


I have less than

a year to live.

I'm sorry. I--

Yeah. Shouldn't-- Me too.

Just... gimme everything

you've got there.

I like your locket.

Where'd you get that?




It's-- It's from the

breath capture line.

What's breath capture?

You open it up,

You take a deep breath,

You exhale into

the pendant.

You seal it up,

And then you give

it to someone.


So you can stay close

to them, I guess.

My boyfriend gave

me this one.

It's becoming

quite trendy.

We'll even engrave it

for you if you want.

Are you interested?

No... no one to give

it to anyway.

That'll be 67.


Hi Josh.

What? You can't

say hi to me?

Hi Morgan.

Weren't you wearing the

same thing yesterday?

And the day before?

And every day

before that?


You actually gonna buy

something this time?


I didn't think so.

So get the f*ck out!




It was getting kinda

dreary in there.

Thought I'd spruce

it up a little.


Hey. It's all locked up.


It's not lighting.


Seriously, Nina.

We need to talk about

a couple of things.


Why not?

I'm not ready yet.

You shouldn't be either.

I really just...

... want you to

be prepared.

Something could

still happen.

Nothing short of

a miracle.

I appreciate your

optimism though.

Don't give up, Sue.

I mean...

you never know what's

gonna happen.

Something you haven't

thought of yet

Could fall right

into your lap.


Can I help you?

Yes. I hope you can.
