Come on.

Suspect is on foot.

I got that.

Have a four here.

We're in pursuit of the suspect.

Get down here.





Come on.



Drummond, Drummond,

are you okay?

Oh, no.

I'll catch him in the alley.



Where are you going?

Uh, good evening, sir.

My name is Sam Burns.

I'm a member

of the neighborhood watch.

I might have seen a young man

breaking in to your apartment.

Uh, I'm sorry, I didn't... no,

no, I didn't hear anything.

Well, maybe the sound

of your TV, um...

That's probably what it was.

I'll turn it down.

I'm sorry.


Thanks for looking out.

It's all right.


I'll keep my eyes peeled.

Again with the broken watches.


Wake up.


Get up.

What is this? You know we can't

make money off this stuff.

How many times do we have

to have this discussion?

Yeah, I'm sorry.

You know the rules.

And you nearly got caught by a

neighborhood watchdog. Pack your stuff.

But I didn't. Pack your stuff.

We're moving.

Come on, Dad. Not-not again.

He's-he's a nobody.


You got cocky.

That's why we're leaving.

You're jeopardizing

our freedom again.

What am I going to do

with the broken watch?

Who's going to buy

a broken watch?

Here we go. His paranoia kicks

in and we're packing again.

I know I should stop

messing with the cops.

I just can't help myself though.

There was a time I actually

enjoyed the change of scenery.

It was exciting, like a game.

Now it's just routine.

Keep what matters

and don't leave a trace.

You learn to live

light and tight

when your life is a hit and run.

In a strange way, he's doing

the best he can for us.

Funny thing though,

the fact we're thieves

doesn't bother me at all.

Just another place to leave,

another identity to forget.

There's a bright side though.

I'll miss that

math test tomorrow.

We spend more time in this car

than in any apartment

we've ever lived in.

We go wherever we want,

whenever we want.

For me, the only time I'm truly

free is when I'm running.

So, we're in constant motion,

'cause if we stop,

we're dead.

Stay with me.

Stay with me.

Why have we stopped?

A little change of plans, Danny.

Where are we going?

New York.

New York?

You said we could never go there.

Yeah, it's too dangerous.

I got to face what's chasing us.

Probably when you work

or a crime boss

and fall in love

with his sister,

you're looking for trouble.

I think my father still feels

responsible for what happened to her.

My mother was shot,

and died giving birth to me.

My uncle blames my father and has

been hunting him ever since.

He doesn't even know I exist.

I mean, really,

besides my father,

who does?

Want some hot tea?


That'd be great.


New town.

Same rules.

Same rules.


I got it.


Yeah, I got it.

The rules are simple

and easy to remember.

Rule number one:

know your world.

And it all starts

to look the same.

Hallways, windows,

exits, classes, faces.

More kids I'll never

get to know.

Rule number two:

follow your instincts.

You can't go wrong

with that one, right?

Rule number three.

Let me go.

Let me go.

Trust no one.

The fact I know the rules, doesn't

mean they're easy to follow.

Hey. Hey.

Shut it, shut it.

Not today, officer.

Dude, I owe you one.

I'll catch you around.

Hey, bro.

Thanks for this morning.

Mark Baltimore.

D-uh, Sean Preston.


Just Sean.

I, uh, I stutter sometimes.

Where are you from, bro?

Uh, Detroit.

Detroit? I would've

guessed Milwaukee but...

I've been there, too.

Hey, Mark.

You, uh, got that
