Go away. Shoo, shoo!

Hey! Child! Come back here.

Bring that back!

Watch it!

Stop!

Ooh! Whoa!

Little savage!

Almitra!

Almitra!

Eggs, honey, fruit, nuts.

Let's say, seven silver ones.

What? Oh, yes, of course. Let me...

Almitra!

Quite a handful, your daughter, no?

Actually, she's very sweet.

Yes. Like lemons.

With honey.

That's four, five, six...

Almitra! I mean it!

...and seven.

Almitra, get down from there!

No, no, no. No, I mean, don't move!

No, no, no.

Easy, boy!

Oh, dear!

Oh!

Are you all right?

Not again. My dates, ruined.

It's the mother's fault.

Letting her run wild like an animal.

Sorry. Sorry. I'm so sorry.

Here, here's some.

This one's still good.

These are okay.

It will not happen again.

It takes a village, no?

An apology would be nice.

I said I was sorry.

No. From her. She's the one

causing all the trouble.

You know she doesn't speak.

Or won't.

Not since her father died.

Ugh. That was over two years ago.

Look, I'll pay you later.

All of you. At the end of the week,

when I get paid.

And what about all she's stolen?

My daughter is not a thief!

That's what she says, yes.

Hey, Almitra, look.

We found the cat that got your tongue.

You ought to be ashamed of yourselves.

Darling, pay no attention to them.

They're just dumb kids.

What's this?

Eee!

Baby, I know you miss your father.

Me, too.

And if I could bring him back, I would.

But it's just us now.

And you know what?

We're going to be all right.

We just need to stick together.

You know what I miss the most?

Your voice.

All right, my little one.

It's school for you and work for me.

Try to be good, okay?

Oh. Please let it be a goat.

Almitra.

Why are you following me?

You know you're supposed to be in school.

Well, there's no time

to take you all the way back,

and I can't lose this job.

I guess you're just going to

have to come with me.

But listen.

You better not take anything.

I'm serious, Almitra.

In this family, we do not steal.

Understood?

Oh!

Ya!

Good morning, Halim.

Kamila.

Morning, ma'am.

Are you okay?

Excellent.

Oh. You've brought along some help today.

Or perhaps you're a spy.

Yeah, she's the leader of the Resistance.

Excuse me.

Wait! Don't go yet.

I mean...

I can't allow entry without

the appropriate documents.

For the girl.

What? Oh, come on, Halim.

I don't have time for this.

I've got work to do.

You know this prisoner

is a high security risk.

A dangerous criminal.

Why do you think they assigned

me to guard him?

- I have no idea.

- Whoa, whoa!

Hey.

Fine. Then you can babysit her.

She's very well behaved, by the way.

Shouldn't give you any trouble at all.

Uh...

So, Almitra, what do you do for fun?

Ahh!

Geez!

Hey!

What did you say to him?

Almost.

Okay.

This is great. I'm having a wonderful day!

Hey, come back here. That's my hat.

It's an official hat, you know.

It's a government hat.

Come back here! Here, birdie, birdie...

Do I hear a mouse?

Careful, little mouse.

There are traps everywhere.

I never get visitors.

It'd be nice to have a chat,

even with a mouse.

Oh. Where did you go?

Little mouse?

Hmm. No. Not there.

Ha-ha! I know. The cookie jar.

Hello.

Hmm.

Mmm.

Hmm.

No. Not there either.

Well...

Hmm.

A-ha! There you are!

Oh. A mouse in a cage.

Want a cookie, little mouse?

Mmm.

My name's Mustafa.

What's yours?

A-ha.

Almitra. That's a pretty name.

Well, Almitra,

there are all kinds of cages.

This house has been mine for seven years.

My crime?

Poetry.

Hmm.

Oh. The lady with the mousetraps. Quick!

We prisoners have to be sneaky.
