My wife's going to pay

at the association tomorrow.

These 50 are for you.

You sing just like him.

If you need anything ask the waiters.

Bocha, get something to eat.

I have an important show

next Friday.

We've been rehearsing a lot.

Do you want to come?

I'm playing "Unchained

Melody", alone on the piano.

I'll talk to your mom

if you like.

We're here.

Lisa! Lisa,

come here.

Remember to keep

a level head.

Bye beautiful.

Hey, Gutierrez!

Gutierrez!

Hey, Gutierrez!

You're listening

to concerts all day long.

Get on with it. Come on!

I'm yours, baby!

Dollars, right?

How much does Business cost?

Hi there!

Economy then.

What time does it depart?

August 14th.

Perfect.

Elvis.

- Great to see you.

- Freddie.

Come in and have a drink.

- Britney! Hi.

- Hi.

- Which one's ham and cheese?

- No idea.

The son of a b*tch is making it

by the barrel. Look at this house.

They don't call me anymore.

You're lucky,

you're back again.

I invented rock and roll.

I was never gone.

You want me to blow you?

Why are you like that?

Like what?

Like the guy on the TV.

'Cos God gave me his voice.

I just had to accept it.

Listen to what he says.

Amazing, isn't it?

I don't know English.

He says women've scratched

and bitten him.

But he knows they don't

want to hurt him.

They just want a piece of me.

Guys.

No I don't think so.

OK. Bye.

Yes, can I help you?

- I'm here to get paid.

- Name?

What's your name?

- I'm under Carlos Gutierrez.

- Gutierrez...

Julio... Maria...

Carlos, here you are. 700 pesos.

They owe me shows for

the last 4 months.

That's what I have.

Your lunch ticket.

Who is it?

Elvis.

- Hi

- Hi

Mom!

I'm coming.

I brought you this.

Thank you.

Are you coming in?

Okay

What's that?

It' s for Lisa.

Lisa!

- Do you want to eat?

- Okay.

You're getting fat.

I'm trying to put on weight.

- What's that?

- How about "Hello"?

Hello

It's for you.

It's black.

Didn't they have

another colour?

See what it does.

- It doesn't do anything.

- Wait.

It doesn't do anything.

ELVIS.

I taught it.

Take it off the table,

I'm going to set the plates.

Lisa got chosen

for the school choir.

Yeah, Lorena too.

We're going to sing

at the school concert.

I don't know...

...the world of music

is very tough.

It's the school choir, Carlos,

she's not going on tour.

I'm just saying that

it's a tough business.

Do you want to go

or not, love?

Yes, I want to be with the girls.

Well, we 'll talk later.

Lisa...

If music is what you want,

I will help you, OK?

ELVIS.

Why are you looking

at me like that?

Many young artists

can't take the pressure.

What pressure?

- You'll understand me one day.

- Lower your voice!

You take her to school once,

and you think you're a hero.

And then you bring

that f***ing bird.

Who' s going to buy

the food for the birdy?

It's a mate for Lisa.

Don't get jealous.

Damn the night I met you.

Can't you act like a father,

for once?

Priscilla, you'll always

love me.

Get off Carlos!

What are you doing?

- Don't call me Carlos?

- What's your name, then?

Sometimes I think

you want to drive her nuts.

Get out. Just get out.

- What is it?

- Get out of here.

Go!

Go!

Carlos, can I borrow

some deodorant?

Thank you.

To Sarah, please

Come on Sarah.

Do you hear me, ma?

I'm about to do something big,

what I always dreamed of.

I want you to know that

it's thanks to you and dad.

You will be proud of me.

You're going to see me

make it.

Lydia

Here.

This is for a few months.

I don' t want her

needing anything. Bye.

What is it, Gutierrez?

Here. Keep these.

- They'll be worth millions.

- What?

Where are you going?

He spoke in English.

Did you hear that?

Can you give me the eyeliner?

This one is OK, it works.

- Spray? You have some?

- No, I have mousse.

It works for you?

It's really cold in here.

Yeah, I'm shivering.

How many people came?

Not much.

But they usually come late.

Have you ever felt that

you've done everything,

that you've reached

your goals?

No.

Still, I got a promotion

at the supermarket.

I don't think you're good for her,

Carlos.

Lisa needs somebody who talks

to her, who understands her.

- Not your silly songs.

- What do you mean silly songs?

Wait. Listen to me.

A friend at work got me a lawyer

and I'm asking for custody.

It'll all be easier.

You can visit her for Christmas

and birthdays and stuff.

I think it's best for Lisa.

We can't take this anymore.

I'm fed up.

Good. Watch the chorus,

the song has to be perfect.

- This show is very important.

- Hello. Just a moment.

It has to be like the last one.

I want to sing Unchained Melody.

- Elvis.

- Not now, I'm rehearsing.

It's for you.

They say it's important.

Hello.

What?

I'm looking for my wife

and daughter.

Excuse me, excuse me!

My wife and daughter had an accident.

They told me to come here.

Name and surname?

Alejandra Olemberg,

Lisa Marie Gutierrez.

No, I can't.

I said no!

I can't play.

Who's with Alejandra Olemberg?

Your wife had an accident.

She suffered cranial trauma

and she's unconscious.

We're running a brain scan to

see if there is any damage.

- Are you sure it's my wife?

- Alejandra Olemberg.

And my daughter?

The girl is fine.

Doctors are assessing her condition

in the emergency ward.

- Where's that?

- Down the hall.

She is ready.

Lisa...

...shall we go?

Where?

You're coming with me.

Isn't mom coming?

No. She's staying

in the hospital for a while.

Let's go get the blackbird?

We gave it to a neighbor.

- What are they?

- Banana and peanut butter.

- I don't like it. It tastes funny.

- Lisa Marie loved them.

Is there anything else on?

I have another concert

if you like.

It hurts.

The doctor said to give me

the medicine every 4 hours.

It's been 7 already.

- Where are they?

- In my backpack.

It's in your room.

Where?

Look around. But

don't mess up my stuff.

Dad.

Dad.

I can't sleep.

What is it?

Is mom going to die?

What?

Is mom going to die?

I don't know.

I'm scared.

Me too.

It' s been 48 hours. She's stable,

but still not responding.

There's no toilet,

but I peed anyway.

What did the doctor say?

They don't know yet.

Can you play pool?

- Yes. Can you?

- No.

D'you want me to teach you?

Sure.

Lean on this, and you guide it

with these 2 fingers.

You have to hit the ball

into these holes.

The colored or striped one.

Now move, I'm starting.

Hit it with all your

strength. There.

Now you do it.

You've got to aim

at the white one,

and make the cue stick

go straight for the hole.

No, no.

- How?

- Watch me do it.

Great.

755.

Anyone has that number?

You must participate to win.

959.

Stay here.

I'm going to play.

I can't hear a thing.

- This damn sound, this damn club.

- Come on Sandro!

What's your problem?

You come up here and sing.

Lady, what are you laughing at?

F*** you lady and your

f***ing hairdo.

And f*** this damn club!

Sh*t.

Open the door!

What's the matter? Are you nuts?
