There, that's it.

There, that's steady now,

you can steer the cot.

Hi, grandpa.

You took so long...

I finished putting all four wheels

on the cot, there, look.

Wow that's so cool, right honey?

A "cot-cycle"!

- Have you two eaten?

- No.

Steer it!

- Doesn't it turn?

- Yeah, here look.

Your mother went to get

something to eat.

In the name of the Lord Jesus...

I pray for these souls

who hear Your word.

Oh Glory be, heavenly Jesus!

Daddy's little Britney.

Hi there. Jessica, I've been

waiting since one o'clock.

Sorry, I'm late.

But it's the same every week,

one o'clock is one o'clock...

my mother's been complaining.

Grandma's little baby, bless you,

now come with grandma.

Has she had lunch?

Not yet, but she drank all her bottle,

didn't you darling?

Two o'clock and no lunch?

I'm sorry, but the life...

you lead can't be good

for the child, Jessica.

How many nights I've lain awake

praying to the Heavenly Father...

just picturing what this child

must be going through.

I know very well how to look after

my daughter, Dona Jandira.

She's even got a cot her grandpa

made, right darling?

She didn't even want

to come to see you.

God shall illuminate your path,

child, I have faith.

Come on, let's have

lunch with grandma.

- Now?

- Yes, now, lunch with grandma!

I don't know how you stand all

that religious crap all day long.

You take good care

of my daughter...

and drop her off on Monday, okay?



Hey, Jessica!

Cool dreads!

Come on, Diane.

- Where is he?

- Oh, forget your dad, honey.

What about the girls,

aren't they coming?

Don't know.

This is for you.

You grow prettier by the year.

Shall we?

Like it?

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday, dear Diane

Happy birthday to you!

Viva Diane!

Look what I brought you.

Isn't that what you wanted?

Takes pictures, video.

I already saved my number.

Let's go to bed, Peri?

So, did you like the surprise?

Happy birthday.

- How much is it?

- Rs 1.20.

- Hi, Sabrina.

- Hi there, Jessica.

- Here

- Thanks.

Here, Sabrina,

just right for you.

That's cool!

How much do you think

this skirt is?

Shit this is so cool,

totally cool!

Can I try this on?

- Far out!

- It's gorgeous!

- So how much have you got?

- I've Rs 12.50, minus Rs 3 I owe.

Rs 9,50

- How about you, Sabrina?

- Man, I think I've about Rs 15.

- I've got some lunch tickets.

- You think they take tickets?

- So how much are the pants?

- Rs 49

Christ, Rs 49, for that

you can get a pizza...

buy some thread and still have

enough for a couple of joints.

I could get my MP3 player

for that.

I live a week on that, sure is hard

work making yourself sexy.

- I'll put the next one.

- You're on form today.

You play well.

- What's your name?

- Melissa.

- Playing by yourself, Melissa?

- Yeah, come and play me.

Give me a beer.

Another drop?

How old are you?

You look 20.

Yeah, we could go for a walk

and I'll show you.

You're the boss.

I know a little hotel near here.

Let's go to my place.

It's quieter.

What do you want?

Why didn't you come

to my birthday?

I was expecting you.

I couldn't.

But you promised.

I waited for you all night, dad.

Stop calling me dad,

you don't even know if I'm your dad.

Mother knew perfectly well.

You mother doesn't even know


let alone all the kids

she left hanging around.

Go and grab something to eat,

I'm busy now, go on.

Oh, and do me a favor?

Don't come back here, okay?

This is no good,

dry as a bone, it'll all fall out.

I've got to stop dying it?

No, just give it a rest,
