I'm sorry to meet you under these difficult circumstances.

How was the trip?


This does not delay. You just have to recognize them.

O bucket.

That will be difficult. Uncover them.


Ready. He has recognized them.

It's ok.

This is for you.

Quick, go get him.

Sent cremate them, as you told me.

No, this is Molina.

Poupas at the wake and funeral.

Who is the Molina?

It's the guy that killed your mother and your brother.

Tomorrow you have to come get the ashes of your family and sign some papers,

to end the proceedings.

Now we have to go to the police station.

One thing is right.

On 11 February,

retired Air Force sergeant, Daniel Molina,

here represented by Mr Duarte,

shot on his partner ...

With a semi-automatic rifle.

But you is the killer?

Yes, to be faster. I explain later. Continues.

With a semi-automatic rifle,

causing the death of Mrs. Amelia Suarez

and his son, Emilio Cetarti,

suiciding-is followed.

What is not clear is why.

Any idea?


No. I had almost no contact with them.

We are of Tucuman.

I went to Buenos Aires with 18 and barely had contact since.

I did not even know my mother

He had remarried and was living with my brother.

No, your mother lived with Molina. Your brother was visiting.

Also do not know if there were problems between his brother and Molina?

Do not know.

Tell-me, because it represents this as Mr. Molina?

Right. I am the executor of his will.

An executor is responsible for fulfilling the will of the deceased.

I and Molina are ...

I am, he was a retired Air Force sergeant.

In the military, is appointed as executor always a companion,

to help the family in all dealings and all that.

If I had happened to me,

he would have done the same for me.

He spoke of some insurance? Life insurance?

Here's what's happening.

Molina had a life insurance policy on behalf of your mother.

Twenty-five thousand pesos of the social background of the Air Force.

Because of what happened,

we can treat that you may receive that money.

It will not be easy.

But, if I can,

we share the money fifty-fifty. What do you think?

I think we can go prisoners.

Do not worry, I know the right people.


You do not have any disability?


Yes, mentally.

No, why?

What a pity. I could withdraw more money.


I got it and I will keep you informed.

One thing,

how did you find me?

Your data were in your mother's notebook.

It was necessary to deal with the paperwork.

To do everything as it should be.

It's strange she have my data.

We can go in the house to see if I can find something useful?

Yes we can.

But there is the ex-wife of Molina.

- Because? - The house now is it.

It was on behalf of Molina, but as he did not marry your mother ...

It's there.

Duarte, what are you doing here?

I brought you this.

I came up with the son of the deceased.

The other her son.

Yes it's me. Javier.

I'm so sorry.

He came to see her mother's things.

What a disaster! It is not, my dear?

I had nothing to do with it,

but here I am, to clean up this mess.

I've always been the most foolish.

Take a look.

Talvez encounters something.


Are the keys to your brother. They must be his house.
