I'm calling about the summer job.

I see. They're all gone.

Better luck next summer. Bye.

How about a cash counter job?

- I think I'd learn that.

You don't have much experience.

But thanks for calling.

Let's think about it

again next summer.

How old are you?

- Seventeen. Eighteen this fall.

OK. What's your name?

- Kamal Obonye.

O-B-O...

I got it. Thanks.

Hello?

Hello?

Are you sure you want to

start with four districts?

Usually people take one or two.

Can't I get more papers?

Deal with those first.

This area has 340 homes. Stairways

with elevators. And without.

Twice a week. One area

equals about 17 per box.

Knock yourself out.

UNEXPECTED JOURNEY

Abdi, dinner!

- That's my mom.

See ya.

Everytime someone calls Abdi,

all Somalis turn their heads.

Why didn't my parents come up

with a better name?

Gotta go. Later.

- Later.

Hey, Abdi.

- Yeah?

Are you going to tell my mom

what I told you?

Do you have the money?

Trip summary

One way only. 552,50

Kamal. In two clays we're moving

to your stepfather's place -

and you haven't

even started packing.

Are you not going to speak to me and

your mom for the rest of your life?

It's not my fault his clad took off.

- Just leave him be.

Someone should show him

a male example.

Hey!

Could you pass the ball?

- I could.

F*cking old fart!

Do you know how to read?

Do you need any help?

Can you pick my lock?

Give me a break!

No harder than stealing a car.

My tax money's supposed

to support old-timers like you?

Hey, Somali! You're not

leaving me like this, are you?

I'm not paying those swindlers

for opening the door.

We used to have a janitor. Ringing

his doorbell fixed everything.

There's a twenty in here for you.

Twenty-five! That's my last offer.

This is what happens when

you leave your balcony open.

Somalis keep climbing in.

You owe me five.

You have to have cash.

You can't trust the banks anymore.

They hide their money in Panama.

Finnish salami.

Full milk. Local.

You'll get your money back.

When the groceries are here.

What are you waiting for?

Finland qualifying for the games?

Turn down the noise!

- You're the one making noise.

Get a job.

- It's holiday season.

You always have one.

I hate this shitty music.

Come down here to say it.

Are you OK?

Contacts

Dad, home

Kamal! Give us a hand!

- We don't need any help.

Kamal's very handy with these.

We need the car to move out.

I've checked that already.

He's a good man.

I'm serious with him.

We're going to be a family.

If you're not happy with this...

Park the car.

Start the car.

I'm not going back.

Do you know where Finns spend

their Midsummer? At the cabin.

I'll show you the way.

If you're a good driver,

it's four hours there and back.

That's more than you make

in a month with the damn leaflets.

All right.

A hundred more when we get there.

Wait.

One-way trip

Did the cat get your tongue?

Usually you guys babble all the time.

Do you know what's

a good name for you? Speechless.

If there are no objections,

the name stays.

DOUG!

First time out of town?

Hell!

Can't be the first time

you see a man pissing?

Bloody hell.

I think I just shat myself.

Come and help. Take some of

that grass to wipe the shit off.

This is what I'm paying you for.

Really. I was just pulling your leg.

Why are you shaking?

Are you high on doobies

or something? What?

I don't have a licence.

I'm not old enough.

I really need the money. We

got this far. You know I can drive.

Whose car is this?

- Abbasi's.

Who's he?

- Nobody.

I'll tell them you ran away

from the hospital. -Shut up, boy.
