Please state

the purpose of your visit.

Visiting family. In Markham.

Thank you.

Next, please.

Refugees. Please.

Please state

the purpose of your visit.

I have three days

of meetings here

before I move on to Montreal.

Merci. Au revoir.

Please state

the purpose of your visit.

Well, hello there.

Is your mother or father

travelling with you?

Do you have anything to show me?

Some papers?

That's very nice.

One second.

Yeah, can you send someone

over from Special Handling?

Flight number?

Are you joking?

At this point,

we're still searching

for what carrier he came in on.

Christ. Well, let's keep him here

till we figure things out.

It's incredible

that he could've got in

without somebody somewhere

papering him.

How could something

like this happen?

Don't ask me. I've got my own

department to worry about.

You don't know where he's from,

you don't know

what processes they've got.

Maybe they've got shit.

I hope that's not the case.

Why are we being so quiet?

He doesn't understand

a word we're saying.

Hey, you wanna come here?

Right there. Good.

Okay, smile, honey,

I'm going to take your photo.

... Yeah.

Okay, well,

there are three possible flights

he could've come in on.


So I need you to track down

those manifests and...

Shit, I gotta call you back.


Don't drink that,

that's not good.

There's a water fountain

right over here.

Come on, I'll show you.

Hey, you wanna come

to the farm with me?

I was gonna pass through there

on the way to my friend's.

Come on.

It's got all the best animals.

Cows, horses and goats.


Just stay here.



Don't bike in the road, Cayle.

Hear me?

- Y es.

Stay on the sidewalks.

Where'd he go?

- Who?

That boy.

We were playing a game together.

What, you have

a new imaginary friend?

He wasn't imaginary.

You know I'm your only

non-imaginary friend, don't you?

Listen, I have something

to show you.

You won't believe it.

- What? What is it?

Not here.


Let's go to our place.

Look at this.



of Toronto's Cabbagetown

"have reported sightings

"of what they claim to be

a strange, sapiens-like humanoid

"scurrying around

in the cavernous underworld

"of the picturesque neighbourhood.

"One Parliament St. resident

"describes his run-in

with the creature.

"It occurred while he went

in search of his missing kitten.

"He discovered a hidden passage

leading under a building,

"and there saw a dead kitten

and the alleged monster,

"covered in slate-grey fur.

"After the creature whispered

in a raspy voice,

"'Go away, go away,'

"it scurried off

down a 45-degree-angle tunnel

which descended

as far as the man could see."


- Can you believe that?

A monster, living underground.

Do you think it's real?

- Y eah.

How do you know?

- 'Cause I do.


my mom says

that monsters aren't real.

Well, they are.

Your mom just says that

so you won't be scared.

My mom used to tell me

the same thing.

That's what moms do.

Let's see it for real.

I know where there's an entrance.


- In the ravine,

under the subway tracks.

- I don't know--

- Come on, Jacob.

What's the matter?

You scared?


- Whoa!

You're such a sissy.

- But you scared me!

Mamma's boy.

- I am not!


Come on!

You're too fast!


Where are you taking us?

Who's Cayle?

I am the great Queen Alabantia.

My kingdom is under siege

by an evil intruder

from another land.

Is there any brave knight out there

who might be able to save me

from this horrible intruder?


And who art thou, "Me"?
