Here's your double topping, d*ckhead.

And the tire's supposed to float?

An inner tube, yes. Not a tire.

Really? I'd rather bet

just the opposite.

Feeling any better, son?

It's burning hard.

Daddy, I beg you call a doctor.

Come on. Probably just ate too fast.

It's gonna be alright. Don't worry.

We all ate too fast.

It's hurting bad, I told you!

Does anybody know anything

about medicine?

No, sorry.

Well, do you happen to

know anything about physics?

Would a tire sink or float?

It would sink.

We just saw it a minute ago.

What is going on?

Oh, damnit! It's a hell.

Oh, help me!

What's happening to us?

We're poisoned.

The turkey was a trap.

A trap?

Oh! Is this how they

they treat the audience?

Don't worry ma'am.

They're not gonna get away with this.

I am still here.

And I want my show.

Sure I want my show.

Anybody there?


...the pool there.

It is right here.

This tire is alive.

The tire story again?

It doesn't look very alive to me.

I saw the tire get into room 16.

He locked himself in.

You know what, I've heard

enough rubbish for the day.

Now get the dirty tire out of the pool,

or I'm gonna get really mad!

- Sorry, lieutenant.

- Nothing.

But tell me...

Don't you find it strange

we can't see the air around us?

Why do you say that?

Just like that.

No reason.

Okay, kid, listen to me.

Nothing to worry about.

It's a perfectly ordinary tire.

Yeah, same here.

You see it's not moving.

- Well, maybe it drowned.

- Would you stop with this crap, okay?

You're putting me ashamed in front of

- a police officer.

- Don't be rough.

- There is no need to do that.

- You know, someone died here, okay?

We don't joke about things like that.

Do you understand?

Yeah, that is true.

I'm not joking. I am sure

that this tire killed Martina.

Oh, that is enough! Alright?

I don't want to see you anymore. Okay?

We will settle this tonight. Now squirm!

You're getting on my nerves, go!

You're a little jumpy.

Not usually.

And take your f***ing tire, would you?!


Mr. Hugues, can I ask you some

questions for the investigation?

Sure, go ahead.

How was your relationship with Martina?

We got along fine, you know,

employer, employee.

- You were satisfied with her work?

- Yeah.

Nothing in particular you'd mention

about her behaviour?


Very good.

It's been 6 hours, the poison has

had time to take effect. We can stop.

- The poison?

- Yes, we poisoned the spectators.

And go home now, Mr. Huges.

We don't need you anymore.

- Thank you very much.

- I don't understand.

It was a pleasure working with you.

Everybody, listen!

I have something important to announce.

Pay attention, please.
