Good morning!



Where am I?

Red Cross Hospital.

Red Cross?

Yes, you're lucky.

This is the best facility

Nakuru has to offer.

Nakuru ...

Africa ...

- What the hell am I doing here?

- Good question!

What anyone could want

do in Nakuru is an enigma.

Why are you here?

Working with diamonds.

Unfortunately my appendix

has now decided that he wanted to become infected.

Bad luck, I guess.

Why are you here?

I wonder.

What is your name?

You do not remember

your name?

- John ...

- John No one, perhaps ...

Nicholas ...


John Reilly.

You should talk to a doctor.

Where is the doctor?


- John.

- Yes ..

How are you feeling?

Shit, how do you think

I'm feeling?

Who's there?

I'm Dr. Stevenson.

Just look for the light.

I have some

questions, okay?

What is this?

A house.

Sure. Who lives in the house?

We, the first thing that comes up

the head. Who lives in the house?

Mama Bear, Papa Bear,

a small bear, whatever.

Who lives in the house?

- A family.

- What family?

- A man, a woman and a child.

- A child? What child?

A little girl.

What is this?

An airplane.

A plane? What kind of plane, John?

De .. combat.

- This is a ... pistol.

- What kind?

- Magnum ...

- What does it do?

- Throw bullets.

- Why did she shoot bullets, John?

Because forest.


What happened?

I do not remember

too much.

I remember a jeep.

Was brought here 2 days ago

unconscious with a head trauma.

I think the locals thought it was a

American rich and brought him here.

I can see the pictures again?

It would be useful. First

impressions are the most important.

- Please.

- No need to see them again, John.

- Do not make a difference.

- Can I please see them again?

Unfortunately, you had no

identification when it was brought.

- It's not a weapon.

- Do not worry about it.

Delusions often accompany

the trauma you suffered.

Once things babbled in English

they have appointed to me.

The "face" English.

- The "face" English?

- Yes, Oxford.

Stupid enough

to volunteer for 6 months.

And the nurse will come soon

to give you some painkillers.

- Thank you.

- Take them.

And if you remember

anything else ...

I suggest that you write, okay?

- When can I leave?

- Where to go?




What you ...

What are you doing to me?

Where are you taking me ...

Where are you taking me?

What is your name?

John Reilly ...

What is yours?

I'm asking the questions here.

What are you doing in Nakuru?

I suffered a ... car accident ...

I do not remember ...

Who do you work?

I. .. I do not remember ...

This is really

convenient, is not it?

Planes, jeeps, weapons ...

That's what you do?

- What do you want from me?

- I want to know who sent it.

- CIA?

- What?

No. .. wait ... I. ..

I want to talk to someone

U.S. embassy.

Take note of that.

I suffered a head trauma.

I have no identification.

This is not true.

It says here that you

Nicholas is Hanshick.

And it says here that you came

for a Safari.

I say you're a spy.

The government of Nakuru

not like spies.

Especially Americans

pretending to be tourists.

I do not know what you're talking about.

Americans are bad spies.

So indoctrinated by their own culture

that can never mix with the other.

You'll never get

their intent.

I am not a spy.

You will stay here.

Under our supervision, to

remember who you are. Understand me?

John ... Nicholas, Reilly, Hanshick,

or whatever his name.

Yes ..

If you change your mind, tell someone

to speak with Captain Mugambe.

Talk to me.

Only me.

Name of parents ...
