That's enough, Vernica.

It's time for you to leave.

Let me stay a little longer.


It hurt her.

Feels so good, Ale.

Mum, Jacobo found the chocolate bars!

And he's getting his allergy again!

How do you feel?

It hurts.

It's normal. It's a deep wound.

You think

the dog might have rabies?

Excuse me?

Could the dog

you told me about have rabies?

I don't know...

I don't think so.

It's important because

if you're not sure there are two options:

We either go look for the dog

or put you...

on a preventive treatment.

You'd have to come in weekly

and get injections in your stomach.

They are painful injections.

Do you know where to find the dog

that bit you?

Then we must go

and look for that dog.

You're okay with that?

Let's see if we can go tomorrow?

You're gonna hurt yourself.

Good morning!

Let me see that rash.

I told you not to bring

those chocolates here.

Your mum gave them to me.

She should have taken them

directly to the party.

Why did you leave them out?

I hid them!

Jacobo knows perfectly well

that he's allergic. Right?

Stop scratching and eat!

Can you take him to the hospital?

Just take him to your brother.

Okay, then take lvn to pre-school.

Be careful, lvn!

Can you take him to pre-school?

You can take him after the hospital.

I'm already running late.

I could actually get fired.

Don't play with that, eat it!

I can't breathe.

Don't be a clown!

When something like this happens,

don't go to the ER.

Come look for me in the other building,

it's quicker to get you through.


- One moment.

- I have big cheeks, uncle.

- Was the chocolate good at least?

- Yes.

That's good, because the doctor

is going to have to give you a shot.

I don't wanna!

Is everything all right, sis?


- Come in.

- Thanks, Rosi.

- Let me see your little worm!

- Ask your sister, dude!

Let me see that worm!

Watch out! The boss is coming!

Dude, cut it out!

It's payback, a**hole!

- Did you see that?

- Yeah, they fight like school girls!

Let's see if you can clean up

like little ladies!

Let's make sure nothing is missing.

- What about the beers, boss?

- We'll go drink them tonight!

- You are the king of empty promises!

- Not this time.

You're buying anyway!

What's up, dude?

Life is worth nothing

It always begins with crying

And with crying it ends

And that is why in this world

Life is worth nothing

My father had told me

not to make a sound.

All of a sudden

I heard a really loud shot.

The kind of sound

that just rings in your ears.

Then we went to check it out...

And the deer was just lying there.

It had a hole in its head.

A bit of blood was coming out.

It tried to get up but it wasn't able to.

It just lay there and gave up.

I stood there looking at it.

How old were you?

Eleven or so, twelve.

My father took its intestines out and...

roasted them.

I threw up my dinner that night.

And that's why you can't eat meat?


Come here!

Again, Angel?

Keep pressing it for a minute.

Just take the medicine to make sure.

But the wound is not infected,

it looks good.

Yes, doctor.

Careful with those dogs!

- He's cute, don't you think?

- Yeah. I don't know.

Do you have a lot of friends here?

Some, not many.

Neither do I.

You're funny.

That's the nicest thing

anyone has said to me in days.

I'm coming out of a relationship.

A romantic relationship?

I'm sorry.

Do you have somebody?

Not really.

Do you like sex?

Don't we all?

With men or with women?


I'm a bit clumsy socially,

like I told you.


One of these days

we should go out dancing.
