What are you doing down here ...

all by yourself?

I think.

About what?

That I waited alone ...

too long.

It'll be 25 years to the day tomorrow.

I'm afraid that he's growing too independent, ...

too acclimatized.

I do not know if he'd make it.

I've made him too weak.

This was been the plan

from the very beginning.

We can not just

abandon our work now.

It all depends on what

happens next now, all of it.

We are so close to

finding the answer.

I'm not sure if he's ready.

I'm not sure I'm ready.

Listen to me, I will take care of him.

I'll watch him, you have my word.

It's time for you to let go.

Trust me, he's ready.


Are you awake?

Who is he?

I do not know.


Who are you?



Where am I?

You first, I want

a straight answer out of you.

Who are you?

You would not believe

me if I told you.

Try me.

All I remember is darkness.

What do you mean?

There was a small room.

I was alone.

It was all there was.

That's it?

No. No, there was a light.

A voice taught me to speak and read.

A voice?

A provider.

- A.

- A.

- B.

- B.

- C.

- C.

And he led him to a

cave below the earth.

There he saw how thousands ...

and thousands of

candles were burning ...

in countless rows.

There he saw how thousands and

thousands of candles

were burning

in countless rows.

So how did you get out?

I do not know, I woke up in chaos.

The light, the sound.

It overwhelmed me.

I didn't know what to do.

I didn't know where to go.

I was afraid.

Until Remy found me.


Hey, hey, what can I do for you?


Come here.

You're freezing to death.

Are you allright?

Are you okay?

Yeah, you're okay.

Come on, you better get out of here.

Before she calls the

cops. She's freaked out.

Hey, do you speak English or what?

You broke a leg?

Let's go, c'mon. C'mon.

English, c'mon.

He was the first person I met.

He took care of me.

He taught me.

I told him about my life,

about the darkness.

I told him everything.

Crazy shit!

You must have been in some

rich folk's jail.

What is that?

Fancy prison.

You must have pulled off some job.

What did you do, huh?


Do you want me to believe that, huh?

Like you're some kind of

fucking Rip Van Winkle?

What is fucking Rip Van Winkle?

You're allright.

A lot fuckin' strange,

but you're allright.

What's a fucking Rip Van Winkle?

It's a story.

It's about a man who falls

asleep for a long time

and wakes up in a new world.

I understand.

I want to find him.


The provider. He's the only one ...

who knows who I am.

Maybe I can help.

How can I trust you?


Lesson number one. There

is only one person ...

that you can count on in this life, ...

and that is yourself.

You've got to watch your back,

do not trust anyone.

No one, because they

always let you down.

You hear me?



Hey, hey.

What are you having?

What are we havin'?

We would like uhm, two Danish.

Okay, anything else?


How are you doing today, everything good?

Yeah, everything's good.

Nice earrings, I like those.


Two coffees.


That's just like that, huh?

No respect in

service these days.


Lesson number two.

Take whatever you want.

If you see it, take it.

See and catch.


- The money.

- What?

Take it.

That's what I'm talking about.

Coffee ready?

These results are not like

anything I've ever seen.

There is no records of anything.

What do you mean?

It means that on the

pc level, he does not exist.


Well, there's no medical

or dental records,

no birth certificate,
