Fiorentini, Hubert. We have a reservation.

- That's right. Welcome to the Imperial.

Thanks.

I'm sorry to be indelicate, but is the

young woman of legal age?

She's my daughter.

Daddy.

My apologies...

Put all that in the other room.

Thank you.

Very good, about the daughter.

- I didn't have a choice.

Still not smart, because we

don't even look like eachother.

Except for the nose,

maybe a little.

You want orange juice?

- No, thank you.

How about sake?

Maybe later.

Don't you want to try the new clothes?

Should I show them?

- Yeah, that's fine.

Guess who went shopping.

I got all your favourite stuff.

You will like it.

Bazooka, with heat seeker.

Weighs only a pound.

So I got two of them.

Pressed air, mini missiles.

Can destroy two city blocks,

knock out an army. Very efficient.

You know for sure she's your daughter?

- Why?

She doesn't look like you.

- Momo.

Except for the nose. Let's go on.

Anti-personel bazooka, made in Korea.

It can stop a tank.

You got something I can use in town?

- I have something small for that, very light.

This is a classic. A 357 Magnum.

The latest Uzi.

And from Russia with love,

you can use mustard gas with that.

From Argentina, something to

use from a distance, and some grenades.

I'll take this one.

I knew it.

You don't want some grenades?

No, maybe later. I have to stay discreet.

I don't want to scare her.

Do you know what's going on?

- No I don't know much yet.

The woman I love disappears

just like that...

and about 19 years later she's dead. She

leaves me a daughter and 200 million dollars.

- That's what's on the bank account.

But at the rate she spends it

it won't last very long.

Yes and a bunch of idiots with sunglasses

are following us since we left the bank.

I think they want the money.

- I get it. 200 million dollars.

And there where it all began

it shall end.

I'm not in her will for nothing.

I think she needed help.

Someone or something

must have stopped her.

She left me certain clues.

- Yes and 200 million dollars.

Stop talking about that.

It's not for you. Forget it.

Would you be able to get Miko's file?

Yes I think so.

I know a guy for that.

We will have to look into her past

to understand it.

I'm ready.

- Ready for what?

I'm going out tonight.

- Not like that. It's freezing at night.

You have to wear a jacket.

- Yes a yellow one.

I'm not going fishing. I'm going to dance.

And it's always hot when I dance,

just like my mother.

That's right.

Aren't you affraid at night?

The streets are dangerous.

No. A rape at every corner.

- What?

Not every night.

- Lf I have to die, I'll do it partying.

And if you are affraid, why not come with me.

You can play daddy.

I know you like that.

Bring the grenades.

Videogames in a nightclub?

This is uncle Hubert and uncle Maurice.

Come on everyone on the dance floor.

I'm too old for that.

And my knees are hurting.

Come on. Do it for me please.

Cross your knees.

Very good for a beginner.

I'm proud of you.

Hey Momo, it's your turn.

Everything hurts on me.

Oh okay, just one time.

What did he say?

- He wants to challenge you...

in a game where you don't use

your knees.

Where is it?

- Over there.

Ok let's go.

I was winning.

What's going on?

I'll explain later.

No, go ahead.

I'll watch how you do it first.

Don't panic. Don't move.

If you don't mind,

we will play the rematch another time.

Is there another exit?

- In the back.

I am sure glad he's back...

I'm sorry,

I didn't want to ruin your evening.

Who are you?

- I'm not a doctor.

Thanks.

I found that out myself.

Who are you to

kill people like that?

Besides, who were those men?

And why did they carry guns?

Do you understand?

- No, but it doesn't matter. Calm down.

I'll explain everything.

Dry your tears.

Now she reminds me of someone.

Go look for Miko's file...

and call the lab for the dirt

under her nails.

In an hour at the Hotel.

- Come on I spend my life in the car.

Your mother asked for me.

She didn't trust anyone else.

Even after all these years,

I think she trusted me.

She let me come here to tell me

something. A secret.

But someone killed her before

she could tell me.

Now the guys in the black suits

are after you.

I didn't do anything.

Why do they want me?

That's what I've been wondering.

You told me she lived in

town during the week?

Two years ago

she took me there.

She forgot something important.

We went there,

but I stayed outside.

She wouldn't let me inside.

And when I said I wanted to

see where she lived...

she hit me in my face.

That's the only time she ever hit me.

Do you remember the address?

Has she always been like this?

She was pretty organized, but not like this.

- Then someone has been here already.

Why is all the furniture gone?

- They were looking for something...

but they don't know your mother.

'Never place an object in another

object you can move.'

What are you talking about.

- You will see.

I still don't get it.

How did you know it was there?

We had the same education.

Tell me, what is this?

Numbers and names.

- Now it's starting to become clear.

And less clear for me.

My mother sent some

guy to look over me...

that kills everyone

and makes holes in the wall.

Yumi, look. Trust me.

The nightmare is almost over.

Alright, let's go home.

This time they left the furniture behind.
