STATE REFORMATORY

Let go of me,

you damn fools!

Damn you, let go of me!

Let go!

Stupid b*tches!

Let go of me, I said!

You're in here because

you're useless out there!

Let go of me!

You b*tches, let go!

Let me go!

Fifteen days locked in there

will calm her down.

Yeah, right! She's been here

fortwo years...

and is only getting worse.

Let me go! Open up!

Dear Lord!

Get me out of here!

I want to get out of here!

Dear God, you made me

the way I am.

Just like scorpions...

or rats.

Lord of all jails,

have mercy on me!

Throw down the bars, the walls.

Let me feel the air, the sun.

I have as much right as a snake,

orthis spider.

God have mercy!

Grant me a miracle

if you can!

Get me out of here!

Get me out of here!

Get me out of here!

Oh, miss! This downpour

is going to be memorable.

Why do you say that, Felisa?

Because it's out of season,

and this kind of storm

is the devil's doing.

Even our sweet little cat

has just scratched me.

Don't start, Felisa.

I know you very well.

lfthe sun rises two minutes late,

it's bad luck.

If you meet two crows head on,

it's the end ofthe world.

It's superstition.

It may be "suprers"...

or whateveryou may call it,

but I was right last time.

Remember when your son

had typhus fever?

It was after a horrible downpour.

- Hail Mary full of grace...

- Conceived without sin.

I can't argue with you and all your

heaven's lawyers.

Good evening, mother.

Son, you took so long I thought

you had gone to Mexico City...

to get your agronomist degree.

Put that away.

And my fatherwonders where

I get my irony from.

Gone all afternoon...

I have a feeling

someone has a girlfriend.

That's right. She's green

and she has six legs.

- What?

- Here.

This little bug is responsible

for ruining our com crop.

Poor little God's creature...

You take things literally, Felisa.

You'll never change

your childish ways.

A 60 year-old child.

Besides, change is no good,

Mrs. Carmen.

No one would guess

you're over thirty.

Thirty... Very well lived 30 years.

Not like today's 30 year-olds.

You're impossible, Alberto.

Making Felisa talk nonsense.

Leave her alone.

- And you, Felisa...

- He started it.

Don't get mad. Let's make up.

You always get your way.

Look at you, sitting at the table

before yourfather.

Sorry, mother. I forgot.

Where is father?

It's alright. Stay still, stay still.

It will be a normal delivery,

Mr. Guadalupe.

Don't worry, be patient.

You know how much I love

this animal.

I don't want herto suffer.

This love you feel foryour horses

is that of a man for a woman.

- Will it take long?

- The average time.

Go have dinner,

I'll inform you soon.

I know you're laughing at me,

but I feel the same way

as when my son was bom.

Jesus, as soon as it's near

go get me.

If you fail me, I'll fire you.

Please don't, boss.

You lose.

It's a trick deck.

How is the mare, father?

The veterinary says everything

is fine, but I'm very nervous...

As usual, as if it were your son.

You want me to help, father?

I'm not bad at it.

Bad at it? Sometimes I think you love

the land and the animals...

more than you love me.

Father, I believe I can better

prepare for my exams...

here at the farm

than in Mexico City.

- Is that fine with you?

- Do as you wish.

As long as you don't

get tired of us.

I promise I'll find him a girlfriend

to distract his mind.

Mothers have a special way

with that.

And fathers for scolding them

ifthey don't study.

I promise that won't

be necessary, father.

Jeez, that one was close!

Holy Mary! What a night!

You can row yourway to the barn.

Mr. Guadalupe, please excuse me.

What is it? Any news?

Bad ones. The colt was stillborn.

Stillbom...

Everything was going well...

And the mare?

The veterinary is not sure

he can save her.

Holy Mary of God and all Saints...

My china! My china is in pieces!

The devil seems

to be on the loose.

Holy Trinity!

Look out there, in the window.

Lord Almighty!

Oh, dear, it's the devil!

As the priest says:

"Stay away, Satan!"

Will you be quiet, Felisa?

Put her on the sofa, Jesus.

Holy Mother of God!

Stop that, Felisa!

Bring some water and clean

towels, quickly.

There must have been

a bus accident.

In a frenzy, this woman started

to run and ended up here.

- That's probably it.

- Maybe.

But now we must take care of her.

Who knows... Yesterday we had some

gypsies around here. Maybe...

She's hurt, but it looks like

she only fainted.

Get me the ammonia, Jesus.

Quickly.

Yes, madam.

Alberto, place another cushion

under her head.

What could have happened to her?

Atragedy, no doubt.

Here you are, madam.

There. She's coming to.

Do you feel better?

What happened to you?

Well, these are women's affairs.

Leave us alone, maybe she'll calm down.

You're very young.

Almost a child. Feeling better?

A little, madam. Thank you.

Don't mention it.

What's your name?

Susana, madam.

- Susana what?

- Just Susana.

Dear Lord, don't you have

a family name?

Have you no parents?

I never met them.

Awoman took me in and...

We'll send you back.

Where does she live?

- No, please, madam...

- Calm down, dear. Easy.

Were they cruel to you?

The woman's husband treated

me well, but he died.

And then it all changed.

A dirty old man came

and wanted to...

I refused...

Then he hit me and...

Since I always refused he said

I was a burden.

That I had to work and that

he would take me to...

Where?

To work for a good family

in Acapulco.

And it wasn't true.

On the road he tried to take

advantage of me.

Dear God, what did you do?

I jumped out of the car,

I ran and somehow ended up here.

Don't let him find me, madam.

Don't let him find me.

No one will look foryou here,

and if he did...

- No, madam.

- You're like a daughterto me.

I'll protect you.

Thank you, madam.

Thank you, mother.

Felisa, call the men.

You are safe now.

Calm down, girl. Calm down.

You may come in now.

What happened? Who is she?

I'll tell you in a moment.

Now, this poor girl

needs to rest.

Do you feel better?

Felisa, go with her.

For the time being she can stay

at the blacksmith's room.

And give her some broth.

Thank you, madam.

Here, here.

If it were up to me, I would...

Oh well...

God's will be done.

Get some sleep,

tomorrow we'll see.

Did you find the engineer?

With difficulty. They're all working

forthe state at the moment.

But he's on his way

to the stable.

Thank God.

And the poor mare?

That's got me very worried.

- What does Mr. Severiano say?

- Nothing really.

But if it goes on like this

I'll have to put her down...

and you know how

much I love her.

Don't be hasty.

I have a feeling she'll be fine.

I've been hoping for a colt

from herfor so long,

but she worries me.

But, on another note, what will

you do with the girl we took in?

She seems so nice, so helpful.

She's only been here fortwo

days and her help is noticeable.

I pity her, she's so humble,

so innocent.
