Acts of Violence (2018) Movie Script

[down-tempo tense music]
[panicked breathing]
[up-tempo tense music]
Hey! Hey!
Deklan, that's enough.
Come on.
Get in the house.
Get in there.
[birds chirping]
[man] What now for
the hollow-hearted soldier?
[gunfire, explosions]
[indistinct shouting]
When the beast of battle
digs in its claws
and... a soul sets sail
in eternal pause.
Survival's true cost
is growing older.
Where to for the man
without a mission?
When the cries of combat
cease to sound
and the ones once brave
all lie in the ground.
The warrior's new war
is attrition.
What hope
an entire war cherish?
To brave a new battle
or to perish.
- Deklan.
- Hm?
You wrote this?
You think I didn't?
No, I was just...
I was just surprised
by how profound it is.
You think, uh, soldiers are
incapable of being profound?
Is that it?
You know, I've been calling you
for a little over two weeks.
I've left you messages,
and you've never called me back.
Why is that?
Uh, I understand.
I have a lot of veterans waiting
for appointments, not just you.
The whole system is swamped. You're
lucky you got in when you did.
How are you sleeping?
[sighs] Not very good.
Well, with all this anxiety,
I'm not surprised.
Uh, I think we should try a
new medication to help you...
You know what? You've been
pumping me full of medication
for over a year,
and nothing works.
I'm either walking around
like a zombie,
or I'm punching holes
in the wall.
I don't have a magic wand.
Medications are tools,
not solutions.
Jesus Christ.
Your tools are broken.
If you don't
change your attitude,
things aren't going
to get better.
- You have to take an active responsibility...
- Hold on a second.
I am taking responsibility.
- Not as far as I'm seeing.
- Really? Then what am I doing here?
- You tell me.
- I'm here because I need help.
You think I like
feeling like this?
Well, then
do something about it!
Stick with a support group.
Reach out to a family member.
No one can help you if you're
unwilling to help yourself.
I am trying
to help myself!
You shouldn't be allowed
anywhere near veterans.
[soft string music]
[sirens in distance]
Where's the team?
We don't have one.
We pulled our assets again?
For what?
Bomb threat downtown.
- Again?
- Apparently.
Avery, we can't
go in there alone.
Want a coffee?
Sure. I'll take
a cream and two sugars.
I'm not getting you coffee.
You're such an asshole.
Meet the entry team.
Stevens. That's Davis.
You guys kick in
some doors before?
- [Stevens] A few.
- Marines.
Oh. Appreciate the help.
Are you kidding me?
Rather do this than write tickets
for the next five hours.
We still have clearance
for this raid?
We're clear.
- [siren in distance]
- [sighs] Okay.
You guys bring
enough firepower?
We're good then.
How bad have you
ever wanted to have
- your fucking cock sucked by a high schooler?
- [laughs]
Let's fucking do it.
[up-tempo tense music]
[woman] Police!
Open the door, ice man.
[man] Hey! What the hell?
Get on the wall!
Get on the wall!
Get on your knees!
Both of them!
Give me your hands,
Ready? Go!
- Police!
- Put it down! Put it down!
Get down! Get down!
Get down!
[Avery] Don't move!
She's dead.
[pistol clicks]
- [pistol clatters]
- It's all over.
[shouts, grunts]
Help me!
I'm gonna fall!
Help me up!
You're a fucking cop!
Help me up!
Help me! [screams]
[blows kiss] Sayonara.
Are you all right?
What happened?
He fell.
You push him?
"Push him."
Come on.
[person coughing]
[camera shutter clicking]
[woman] Is it her?
Where's the family?
Mom's in Cincinnati.
You want me
to make the call?
I'll do it.
You okay?
I'm tired.
Go rack out
if you need to.
I'll finish up here.
I'm tired of this.
[sirens in distance]
Come here!
Yeah. Lay 'em on me!
Lay 'em on me! Oh!
[woman chuckles]
Rough shift?
[sighs] We, uh, had three
drive-by victims before lunch.
At least they had
you there to help them.
Yeah, well,
we lost two of 'em.
No, you saved one.
Gotta be proud of yourself.
God, I love you.
[mid-tempo country music
on speakers]
Oh, great.
Who invited you
to the party?
- "Security!"
- Don't start with me.
Seriously, don't, don't.
So when can we expect some little
MacGregors running around?
Just asking!
Can we get married first
before we start having babies?
When are you guys
having little MacGregors?
No, don't listen to her.
We are having eight kids!
- Eight!
- Two.
One boy and one girl.
You guys wanna get
a room or what?
- Get him, Mia!
- Oh, oh, oh.
No, no, no. Now, you
know what happens.
You know what happens!
- Go easy on him, Mia! Please!
- Get him, Mia! Take him down!
[Jess] Come on!
Take him down, Mia!
Take him down!
I found my best friend
[singing continues, indistinct]
I found my best friend
And it happens to be
[song stops]
[drawer closes]
Is this Mrs. Conyers?
This is Detective James Avery.
I'm calling you with information
about your daughter Samantha.
[mid-tempo jazz music
on speakers]
[indistinct chatter]
What are you wearing?
No. Have some respect
for yourself.
- Wanna meet somewhere else?
- No. Have a seat.
You guys are handsome guys.
Why don't you put on a tie
for once in a while?
Come here.
You're gonna be
a dead handsome guy
if your dope keeps
killing my products.
You get that?
It's just taking a little
while to get the cut right.
It's very strong. But we've
tripled our profits already.
Yeah. We know my clients
are a little sick,
but nobody's into fucking
dead people, all right?
You follow me?
And could you tell me why Cleveland's
finest are finding my holding pens
and raiding them whenever
the fuck they feel like it?
That was, uh, Mike's job.
Mike's arrested, right?
Dead. Fell off a roof.
Oh. [chuckles]
That's a shame.
Did he have family?
Wife and two kids.
I want you
to pay 'em a visit...
and send them
my condolences.
Cause I don't want
anyone talking to the cops.
- You get that?
- Yeah.
And hey.
Get me some new product.
And un-fuck your dope problem.
Don't let anybody say you're
not a great chef, Brandon,
because that was fantastic,
as always.
I know. I never question
my burgers, man, ever.
[all laughing]
- Yeah.
- [Brandon] Okay.
Guys, for you.
- Guys! That's so cute.
- Aw! You guys are so sweet.
Oh, my God!
Look how cute we are.
Dad was seriously
considering adopting you.
Did you know that?
- Really?
- Yeah, I mean,
you spent more time with us than
you did at your foster homes.
Well, it's a good thing
he didn't,
or Roman here would be
marrying his sister right now.
- Oh!
- Oh, my God.
Wow. Wow. Wow.
What's up?
Are you gonna give them
their... thing?
[Brandon] What thing?
- Babe!
- I'm kidding!
I'm totally kidding.
Okay, guys...
Tonight is about you guys.
- Jesus!
- Come on, guys!
I don't wanna hear it!
Look, we wanted to wait
for the wedding, but...
We figured it'd at
least cover the cost
for the airfare
for the honeymoon.
- [sighs] Guys, this is too much.
- No! You deserve it.
Okay, well...
- I'm coming over.
- [Jess] Oh, yeah.
- Oh, I knew it. I knew it.
- Thank you so much.
All right. Just take
the money, Roman.
Take the money.
Look, Jess and I have worked
so hard for what we have.
And if you love
that little firecracker
as much as I love this
gorgeous pain in my ass...
- I love you.
- I love you, too.
You're gonna need some money
to spoil her with.
So welcome to
Clan MacGregor!
- [Roman] Yes!
- Officially!
[all] Cheers.
- I'm so happy for you, babe.
- Aw! Thanks.
Now they got you
doing the dishes, huh?
[water shuts off]
I didn't know
you were here.
Nice to see you.
- You're looking good.
- Thanks!
Let me just grab
a cup real quick.
You're just in time to go to the
strip club with your brothers.
I'm not into that.
Why not?
There's too many douchebags
at those places.
I end up punching somebody.
Come on. Roman wants
to spend some time with you.
And I wanna spend
time with Roman,
but I'm not going there.
Whoa! Look who crawled
out of his cage!
What's up, brother?
- Hey, man.
- How you doing?
- Good. You?
- I'm good. You look good.
Hey, stick around, man.
I'll be right back.
Gonna jump in the shower.
Get clean for the ladies.
How are you doing?
I'm doing all right.
They really miss you.
They don't see you ever.
Yeah, I've just been, uh...
Just been going through
a lot, you know?
You're coming
to the wedding, right?
Yeah. I'm gonna try and make it.
Yeah, I don't wanna tell you that
I'm coming and then not show up.
Why would you cancel on us?
I just told you.
I got a lot going on, Mia.
I've been through
a ton of shit too,
but I still show up
for my family.
Mia, congratulations
on the engagement.
I... I hope it works out.
Relationships aren't easy.
What do you know
about marriage?
You've been divorced twice.
I was cheated on twice
while I was overseas.
I know,
and I'm sorry about that.
I'm just trying to say don't
throw shade on our relationship
- when you don't know a thing about them yourself.
- Okay.
You know what?
You're 23 years old.
What the fuck do you
know about life?
[sighs] Jesus.
What'd you say to her?
Think the last time
we were in here,
- we were 13 and making out.
- [laughs]
Brandon locked us in here
for, like, three hours.
Dad was so pissed.
And I was like this close
to peeing my pants.
It's not easy
to talk to Deklan.
I know, but we're
so nice to him, Roman.
We're always reaching out.
He just doesn't care.
Well, we're all he has.
And he's hurt.
And people who are hurt
hurt other people.
Look, he's always been there for
me when I really needed him.
I wanna be
the same for him.
Even if he
doesn't want it.
You're so sweet.
I am sweet, aren't I?
Very much so.
I don't wanna have a bachelor party.
Let's just...
Let's just stay here
and watch a movie.
It's not a bachelor party.
You're gonna go
with your brother
and stare at naked women.
What if I only wanna
see you naked?
[chuckles] You're gonna see me
naked for the rest of your life.
go have fun tonight.
I'm gonna go out
with my girlfriends.
Okay. Well, make sure
you're safe, all right?
I think I can handle myself.
[man rapping] I see you watching
me Girl, I'm watching you
I got a suite downtown
What it do?
[woman rapping] I got my
eyes on you I done chose...
That is for you.
Thank you.
This is all for you, man.
All for you.
- [Roman] Oh.
- [Brandon] Just enjoy yourself.
This is supposed
to be fun, man.
- Come on. Relax! Relax!
- I know. I know.
[song continues, indistinct]
Wow. Wow. Wow.
Wow, wow, wow, wow.
Uh, look at you!
- [woman 1] Hi.
- [woman 2] Hi.
I'm Brandon.
This is Roman.
This is my brother.
He's getting married.
- Oh!
- I know!
I knew that was gonna be
exciting! I know!
All right. I need you
to take care of him, okay?
- You don't have to...
- No, no. I do.
I do. How's that?
Is that enough?
- I'll take good care of this one.
- I know you will.
- Come on.
- I'm going with...
- Yeah. You go, man.
- All right.
- You go.
- All right.
Try and relax! Relax!

Seriously, you guys have
to go away from our table.
Mia, we're being nice.
All right. Listen. Come here.
Let me tell you...
Don't touch me!
- Ooh!

Listen, princess,
I'm just fucking around!
Don't touch me!
- The fuck is wrong with you?
- [Mia] Get out of here!
Mia, you shouldn't
have done that!
You have no idea
who they are!
Get the fuck off me!
I'm cool!
Haley, you leave me alone. I've had
enough of you tonight. Excuse me.
[man rapping]
I see you took one glance

What your friends said

Bend over, trust me

I can't wait to...
[line ringing]
Hey, it's Mia.
Leave a message.
[phone beeps]
[phone beeps]
[Brandon] Look, I know. I just think
that you're overreacting, bud.
[Roman] She always picks up.
She hasn't texted back.
Maybe she doesn't wanna be
bothered tonight, bro.
I mean, she's out having fun
with Haley and them.
Yeah, and I'm fine with that.
I just wanna
make sure she's okay.
All right? Just...
Just drive.
I'm driving.
- [phone beeps]
- [line ringing]
What are you doing?
- I'm calling Deklan.
- Why?
Come on.
[Brandon] Where do you
think she is?
- That house there.
- [Mia's voice on phone, indistinct]
- [Brandon] The white van?
- Shh, shh, shh.
- Damn. I can't hear a thing.
- [phone beeps]
You guys need to keep it down
while I check this.
[Mia's voice]
I can't wait to see you.
Oh, my God!
Brandon, you got
your piece with you?
- Yeah.
- [Roman] Whoa, whoa, whoa.
- Lock and load it.
- What's going on?
- [phone beeping]
- [slider cocks]
[line ringing]
[woman] 911.
What is your emergency?
My sister's been abducted.
- What?
- Okay, sir, what's your location?
We're just down the street
from where she's being held.
The address is
1424 Walker Street.
There's a white van
parked out front.
- What are you talking about?
- And what is your name?
- Deklan MacGregor.
- Fuck.
Okay, sir. Stay calm.
Officers are on their way.
- Sir?
- [Roman] There she is!
Hold it! Roman!
[up-tempo tense music]
- Lay down.
- Get on the fucking ground!
Get on the fucking ground!
- [Roman] It's not Mia.
- [Deklan] It looks like her.
It's not her!
Whoa. Whoa.
Hold on.
He moves, you shoot him
in the head.
Roman, you good?
Yeah, I got him.
[tense music]
Jesus Christ.
Hey. It's okay, all right?
It's okay.
Go on.
Get out of here.
Hey. Hey.
Come on.
I'm here to help you.
Come on.
[sirens approaching]
[sirens grow louder]
[officers chattering, shouting]
- Show me your hands!
- Show me your hands!
So we can see 'em.
That's it.
Keep your hands up! Walk towards us!
Walk towards us slowly!
Very slowly!
Get on the stairs!
Stop right there
and turn around!
Keep your hands up!
It's gonna be okay.
[woman] He drugged me
this whole time.
Put your phone number
down there.
I'll call when I have
information about your sister.
I'm gonna do everything in my
power to try and find Mia.
- What does that mean exactly?
- I'm sorry?
What are you gonna do?
We start by entering her name
in a national database.
It goes to the FBI, DEA, Highway
Patrol, the US Marshalls.
Does that work?
- Excuse me?
- Is it successful?
You and your brother Brandon
were in the Army.
Right? Ranger battalion?
Where'd you deploy?
Detective, are you
investigating me
or the people
that took my sister?
You're not a suspect.
Why aren't you
out there right now?
You see what
these shitbags do?
They're experts.
They move victims around
all the time.
They switch holding locations.
They move people around.
It happens.
Let law enforcement...
Law enforcement do what?
I know you're not
a stranger to violence.
You're not in Iraq.
You can't go around in Cleveland
kicking in doors.
Some of the
investigators here,
they'll charge you guys
with all kinds of garbage.
I don't wanna be the guy
that's gonna put you in jail.
After this,
I can't protect you.
You need to let me focus
on finding your sister.
I'm gonna do everything I
can to try and find her.
- That's a promise.
- Okay. Thank you. [clears throat]
Good luck.
Boys, let's go. Come on.
[slow string music]
What are we gonna do?
I don't know, Rome.
Yes, you do.
We gotta let
the cops do their job.
They're not gonna
find her, Brandon.
We don't go looking, she's as
good as dead, and you know it.
I'll do whatever
I need to do.
You guys just tell me
what to do.
Like what?
What are we gonna do?
We go to war.
We treat it like any
other hostage recovery.
We were just arrested.
- Fuck.
- Hey.
I love Mia.
Look at me for a second.
I love Mia, you know that.
But I can't leave Jess
without a husband.
That's it.
What if it was Jess
out there, Brandon?
Don't do that.
Do what?
- Don't guilt trip me.
- I'm not guilt tripping you.
I'm asking you
an honest question.
What if it was
Jess out there?
Wouldn't you do everything in
your power to get her back?
Of course I would.
But you don't understand
the position that I'm in.
Of course I do.
No. You don't have
a family to lose, Dek.
Mia's our family.
This is our family.
What do you think
Dad would do, Brandon?
I don't care
if I go to jail.
I don't care if I die.
I'm not stopping
until I find her.
I need your help.
I know, man.
I know.
Come here.
- We'll find her. You hear me?
- Okay.
Let's go get you
cleaned up.
[Roman sniffles]
[tense music]
[shallow breathing]
[echoing] Hey!
Hello? Can you hear me?
Let me out of here!
Hey! Can you hear me?
Let me out of here!
I said let me
out of here!
I'm gonna kill you if you
don't let me out of here!
[banging continues]
[door opens]
- You get a tox back?
- [door closes]
I rushed it
for you.
Never heard of it.
That's because it's not
made for humans.
It's a synthetic OP tranquilizer
used for large animals
like horses,
elephants, rhinos.
10,000 times more
powerful than morphine.
And they're cutting it
into the heroin supply?
We've had 30-plus
carfentanyl OD cases
all over the city
in the last three weeks.
Brooke, call Narcos. Find out
what they know about this drug.
Yeah. Okay.
She's 18.
What is this?
Her hand.
Most likely
a bone fragment.
It feels like plastic.
I doubt it.
What is that?
Okay. Thanks.
The girls
the MacGregors rescued...
Have we heard
from the next of kin?
No, not yet. But we do have
the girls in protection.
Anything on
the missing girl, Mia?
What is that?
They've been tagging these
girls with GPS trackers.
Pieces of shit.
Here. Narcos said
nothing about it?
No, actually they're tracking a large
influx of carfentanyl into the city.
Well, good.
Where's it coming from?
Almost all of it's seeping in through
one organization's territory.
Guy named
Max Livington.
- You fucking with me?
- You know him?
I've been working on him
for two years.
- Oh, my God.
- Oh, my God.
Why are you here?
- You can't be here.
- It's okay. It's okay. Hey.
What happened to you?
I called your phone
like a thousand times.
Why didn't you answer?
He told me I can't
talk to anybody.
What? What are you
talking about? Who?
- Who told you this?
- [whimpering]
Hey. Come here,
come here, come here.
These are my brothers.
This is Deklan and Brandon.
Watch yourself, okay?
[sobbing] I'm so sorry.
- I didn't answer my phone.
- Haley.
I didn't know
what else to do.
[Deklan] It's okay. Haley?
Hey. Hey.
Who did that to you?
They're gonna kill me.
No one's gonna hurt you.
We're gonna get you
out of town, somewhere safe.
All right?
Now, what happened to Mia?
She got in a fight with
two guys at the club.
They run girls.
They run you?
No. I... I strip.
They come to the strip club
and try to find johns.
That's how I know of them.
They kidnap these girls?
Is that what they do?
From what I understand,
no, they don't have to.
They hang out at the soup
kitchens and women's shelters
and look for broken girls who
don't have anywhere to stay.
Hey, come here.
Come here.
Don't be shy.
You're too hot to be
freezing out here, man.
Don't break my heart.
Come on. Let me
take you to dinner.
Let me take you to dinner.
I know you're hungry.
Come on. Hop in.
[Haley] They pretended
to care about her,
bought her all this
fancy jewelry and clothes,
and got her hooked on
all these drugs.
Yeah. Right here.
- [chattering]
- [door beeps]
And then it was too late.
They... They turned on her.
This is John.
And I'm gonna
ask you to fuck him.
On the...
[tense music]
Yeah. What happened to her?
She tried to run.
And they found her.
This crazy guy, ugh, he gathered
up a bunch of the girls
and made them watch as he
poured lighter fluid on her.
No! No!
No! No!
I talked to her a couple days
later in the hospital and then...
I guess somebody
found her in Lake Erie.
Okay, but why my fiance?
Huh? Why Mia?
Because she disrespected them.
I want you to hear me.
We're gonna punish the people
that did this to you.
But I need to know
who they are, okay?
Can you do that for me?
- Yeah.
- Yeah?
I don't... I don't
know their names,
but I could show you
a picture.
Okay. Good.
Here. Tell you what. Bring that over here.
Let me see.
- You know where I can find them?
- Yeah.
[mid-tempo techno music]
You heard from Max?
I hope he chills out
soon, man.
Don't worry about Max.
Let me worry about Max.
"Let me worry about Max."
You said that last time.
You gonna kill yourself one
of those days with this.
- Hopefully.
- [laughs]
Your cousin's
gonna be famous.
Nah, man. Did you watch
the game yesterday?
No, I didn't. I just wanted
to watch it for him.
Yeah, he's balled out. He's
been balling, man. It's cool.
- Dude's like...
- [Mia] Hey!
Hey! Can you hear me?
Oh, yeah.
I'm gonna kill you! You
have to let me out of here!
Wow. She's got some fight.
Let me out of here!
I said let me out of here!
[locks click]
Don't touch me.
Please let me go. I swear
I'm not gonna tell anyone.
- Mm, mm, mm.
- Please.
I'm gonna have fun
with this one, bro.
Come here! Where you going?
- Fuck!
- [Mia grunts]
I swear to God, you're
gonna have to kill me.
Oh, yeah? Am I?
Get off me!
Oh! Fuck! Ah!
[up-tempo dramatic music]
- Whoa! Slow down!
- Let me go!
- Whoa! Slow down!
- Let me go! Let me go!
- Let me go!
- Slow down! Whoa.
Oh, God.
You're gorgeous. Hmm.
- And she's feisty, too.
- [shrieking] Get off! Get off!
Somebody shut her up!
Shut her up!
I haven't seen her before.
Where did you get her?
We picked her up
from the...
the White Horse Club.
The White Horse... Why would you
pick someone up from there, huh?
Look, man, you said
you needed product.
I said I needed product,
but not product that's gonna blow
up the missing person report
or the Amber Alert.
It's not as bad as
you think, Max. Honestly...
You're telling me
that the products are dying,
and the police are
raiding my spots
whenever the fuck
they feel like it...
and you idiots are grabbing
girls out of local areas
in front of
fucking cameras?
We picked her up
from a blind spot in the alley.
No one saw
a goddamned thing.
I know how you did it,
but you don't do it at all.
Shoot 'em.
Wait. Wait. Wait.
Hold on. Hold on.
Max. Max. Max.
Max. Max. Max.
- Whoa, Richard!
- Come on. Come on, man.
Come on, Max.
I'm sorry, man.
Max, I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
You know what? I got something
a little bit better.
Give me the gun.
[tense music]
She's gonna shoot 'em.
- [whimpering]
- Untie her.
Come on.
Come on. I take it that you've
never killed someone before.
All you gotta do is take your
finger, put it in the trigger.
Come on, Max.
It's actually real easy.
You take your finger,
and you point it right here.
- Come on!
- Wait. Wait. Wait. Max!
[stammering] Max.
Take your hand right here,
and you put it right there.
Come on, Max.
and you listen close.
I want the girls
off the dope.
We're gonna dump
this product in Vegas.
We're gonna start off fresh.
You got me?
And if you lose another one
of my fuckin' products...
I'mma cut your fuckin' nose
and your fuckin' ears off.
You understand me?
[ominous music]
You're more trouble then you're worth.
You know that?
Against the wall.
Hands against the wall.
See that?
Stay there.
Stay there!
All right.
Give me your hands.
I'd love to hump you.
[locks click]
[up-tempo dramatic music]
Go ahead when you're ready.
Okay. What you're doing right now
is you're bobbling the punch.
So when you come up, you wanna
go from here, straight out.
One, two, three.
Here, then punch.
Up, straight out, then you
ride the front target.
It's not about speed.
It's about control.
Slow down.
Easy. There we go.
So when I move, you move.
When I stop, you stop.
Ah-ah. Now you're in
the line of fire.
Roman, I want you to take a picture
of Mia and put it in your mind.
And then forget
about yourself.
This is all
about her now.
- I love you.
- I love you, too.
You bring her home.
Of course.
What's this joker doing?
Oh, hell, no.
[men grunting]
[buzzer sounds]
Something must be wrong
with my sight system.
Avery, how are ya?
Is your secretary deaf?
Well, she is, actually.
I don't even know why she
answers the phone anymore,
but I've found it
hard to fire her.
I'm serious. I've been
trying to get ahold of you.
You have any idea how many people
try to get ahold of me in a day?
- I told you. I need evidence.
- This...
is carfentanyl.
You can only get it
by mail or robbing a zoo.
It's an elephant
I'm tracking their push
into the system.
All originating
from this one guy.
Max Livington.
That's great if you're
trafficking, not dope.
We recovered ten
trafficking victims
who had this drug
in their system.
You think this guy's
the ringleader.
Had two victims ID him.
Pretty sure I can
make it stick.
Well let's get our shit
together and bring this guy in.
- Sir?
- Seriously.
It's good fucking work.
I'm gonna run it up the chain.
Get your boys together.
Let's bring this asshole in.
[buzzer sounds]
Avery, wait!
Do me a favor.
Pop a few rounds
into that target.
I think my system's off.
You're an asshole.
Wha... What do we got here?
Vince and some of his guys got
rolled up by some wetwork crew.
- Who sent this?
- Don't know.
Wanted to make sure you weren't
cleaning house before I reacted.
I didn't order the hit.
I should've ordered the hit
on that stupid motherfucker.
Listen, I need to beef up
on my security.
I don't want no crackheads.
I don't want no tweakers.
I don't want none of that shit.
I want some real guys
that know how to use
real weapons.
You understand me?
I'll see what
I can drum up.
I need to find out
who owns that truck.
I don't care if it's the FBI.
I don't care if it's the DEA.
You need to find them
and make a motherfucking
example out of they ass.
[ominous music]
[dramatic music]
Hey! Time to
wake up, Vince.
[boat horn in distance]
You lifted a girl
by the name of Mia
from a club
the other night.
Now I wanna know
where she is.
You guys are ridiculous.
You know who
I'm talking about?
Oh, yeah.
How could I forget?
She's long gone.
Gone to a place where they're
gonna use her all day, every day,
for the rest
of her little life.
You son of a bitch!
- Who the fuck...
- [Brandon] Hey! Hey! Easy! Easy!
[Vince laughing]
I'm gonna give you
one last chance.
Where is she, Vince?
Doesn't matter.
Because the guys
I work for,
they're gonna find you, and
they're gonna find you and you.
And they're gonna kill
everybody you ever cared about,
even if you do find your girl.
And they're gonna find me,
and they're gonna cut me up.
So it really doesn't matter!
I wouldn't do that
to you, Vince.
See, you gotta understand
something about me.
I don't like hurting people.
But the C4 that's
strapped to your chest?
It doesn't give a shit.
It's a little excessive,
boys, huh?
- And away we go.
- [beeps]
Whoa, whoa,
whoa, whoa, whoa.
Start talking.
Okay, I'll tell you where
she's gonna be tomorrow.
I'm sure you can.
Okay, look, look.
Look, look, uh...
My boss...
He's closed up shop
here in Cleveland.
He's moving
all his product to Vegas.
- Give me a name.
- Your girl's gonna be there.
Give me a name.
You got 20 seconds.
I'd choose your words
wisely, Vince.
Max. His name's Max!
- Max? Max?
- Max. His name's Max!
Start packing up.
Max what?
- Wait, wait, wait!
- All right, I'm listening.
No, no, no, no, no!
Okay! Okay!
Look, look, look!
Please stop!
Max Livington.
Max Livington!
Shut it off, man! Please!
Come on! Shut it off!
Where is she exactly?
At the trainyard, in a basement,
in a warehouse on, on, on... Fuck!
On 44th Street!
On 44th Street!
You're gonna
take us to her.
Yes, I'll take you to her!
Come on, man!
I'll take you to her!
Turn it off!
Turn it off!
- Turn it off now! Now! Fucking...
- [beeps]
- [dramatic music fades]
- [seagulls in distance]
[dramatic music]
She better be there, man.
If you touched her,
I swear to God...
She's there. I swear.
Look, you gotta
let me out though.
I can't come in
with you guys.
No, you're gonna
take us to her.
Fuck! Goddamn it, man!
[indistinct shouting]
- [Brandon] Clear!
- The fuck is she?
To the left,
to the left, to the left.
Which fucking room, man?
[Vince] The one to the right.
Up ahead. Fuck!
[Vince] Shit.
- Where the fuck is she?
- I swear to God she was here!
She was here!
She got out!
Dek, she got out!
[Roman] Hey! Hey!
Get out!
[electronic beep]
Please, stop!
Go! Go! Drive!
Just drive!
What's happening?
I've been kidnapped.
Just go.
Drive faster. Please.
Where's your phone?
We need to call the cops.
I don't have a cell phone.
Um... I'll take you to
the police station, how's that?
Here. Put this coat on.
I got some boots down there
if you need 'em.
Everything is gonna be okay.
[engine revving]
[gasps, whimpers]
Let's go! Move!
Get off me!
Get off me!
No! Get off me!
[dramatic music fades]
I can't believe you're
pulling this shit on me.
Whoa, whoa, whoa. Pump your brakes.
This is not my call.
This is coming from
way above my head.
Apparently your boy made a
deal with the FBI and the DEA.
He's not getting charged
with anything?
He's gonna give them
every major trafficker
in Cleveland and Chicago and
most of the players in Vegas.
That is some bullshit.
What am I supposed to do now?
They don't wanna treat
the symptoms on this.
They wanna kill the disease.
He is the disease.
Look, the orders are to pull
all surveillance on this guy.
Get your informants out.
It's not your problem
anymore, all right?
Make sure everyone's
out of the way, you got it?
And Avery, you did
a good job on...
Fucking God.
You okay?
What do you got?
Someone just attacked
one of Max's top officers
outside a bar
in the warehouse district.
Have you been
helping them?
Maybe I should be.
What they're doing
is illegal and dangerous.
I know.
Look, it's a homicide.
They're gonna get arrested.
All right?
Do you wanna do it,
or do you want them to get caught by
somebody who doesn't give a shit?
Find him. Bring him in.
[deep breathing]
Hold on.
Okay. Okay.
Dek, we gotta get him
to a hospital.
No, no, no, no.
No hospital.
Just get me home. You can
patch me up there, okay?
- It's Jessa. Leave a message.
- [beep]
Hey, Jess, uh...
We're on our way back, okay?
I got hit, but I'm fine.
We're about five minutes out.
- I love you. Bye.
- [phone beeps]
[door opens]
[soft piano and string music]
Come on.
- Come on.
- She... Don't...
Come on. Come on.
Get him out of here.
[Brandon crying]
[chatter on radio]
[Brooke, indistinct]
It doesn't matter. It's
not up for discussion.
It's not up
for discussion.
As soon as you can, grab your
brothers and get in my squad car.
I wish I had
some good news.
But I don't.
You guys are
gonna be arrested.
I can't stop that.
We just missed Mia.
She escaped.
They have GPS trackers
on all these girls.
Soon as she got out, they knew
exactly where to find her.
You know this guy?
Is that Max?
Yeah, it's Max.
How do you know Max?
A pimp told us
that they were gonna be shipping
girls tomorrow from the steelyard.
Apparently everybody this guy
owns is being shipped to Vegas.
That's tomorrow?
We heard from our informants it
was happening, but not a date.
Well, that's
what he said.
Can you do something
about it?
Max made a deal
with the FBI.
He's rolling on
everybody on his Rolodex.
You mean this piece of shit
is gonna walk?
I can't touch this.
We can.
Look, all I want is just
a little bit of time.
All right?
Think about the lives
that you're gonna save.
Twenty-four hours.
Let's go.
- This is my fault.
- Don't say that, Roman.
- It is!
- Don't even fucking think it!
Maybe you should sit
this one out, you know?
Just take some time
to grieve.
- Grieve?
- Yeah.
We don't have time
to fucking grieve.
They just killed my wife.
There's nothing
I can do about that,
but we are not losing another
member of this family.
[Deklan] Brandon. Hey.
Brandon. Hey. Hey.
Come here, Bran.
Come here. Come here.
Hey. You're fine.
Come on. Let her go.
Jess wouldn't want us
to stop now, okay?
- Come on. Come on.
- Yeah. Yep. Yep.
Let's go get
these motherfuckers.
[dramatic music]
[man] Can you help out
a little bit?
[man] Let's go.
Keep it moving!
Keep it moving!
[muffled talking]
[muffled crying]
[man] Contact!
[Max] Get 'em out of here!
Get 'em out of here!
Get 'em out!
- [grunts]
- [men shouting]
Come on. Hit the top. Hit the top!
The hinges are loose!
Come on! Hit the top!
Come on, baby.
Come on.
[Deklan] Let's go. Move!
Okay. Mm. Oh, yeah.
I love you.
[tires screeching]
[Deklan] Come on. Let's go.
Thank you.
Give me your hand.
Yeah, give him your hand.
Wait, wait, wait, wait.
Here, here, here.
Bite this.
[muffled screaming]
[Roman] It's okay.
It's okay.
[muffled screaming]
I got you. Come here.
It's okay. It's okay.
It's okay.
I love you. Okay.
[soft string music]
[crickets chirping]
I'll see you again.
Listen, Mia.
We broke a bunch of laws
to get you back.
Now we've been working
with a detective,
and he's gonna come by the
house in a little while.
Gonna take us
to the station.
And as long as we keep
working with him...
then he's gonna try to get
our sentence reduced.
- All right?
- [cars pull up]
[car doors open, close]
[Deklan] Get the fuck down!
[automatic gunfire]
Get 'em out of here!
Move! Move!
Hey, guys, grab the carrier
vests and put them on now.
- Now! Roman! Come on!
- Yes! Yes!
- [Roman] Okay.
- [Mia] Yeah.
Fucking God!
[Roman] You got it! You got it!
I got you! Okay? I got you!
Get down!
Get down! Get down!
Go. I'll cover you.
Go! Go! Go!
All right.
You're good.
Oh, it's okay.
Jesus. Give me the gun.
Give me the gun!
Watch him.
[pistol clicks]
Damn it!
We need more bullets!
Mia. Mia! Go check
that room right there.
[both panting]
[footsteps ascending stairs]
Oh, Brandon!
Come on, man!
[Mia shouts]
- [screaming]
- [gunshots]
Baby! Baby! Baby!
You're okay. You're okay.
You're okay.
It's all right.
[soft string music]
[whispers] I'm sorry.
- [soft string music]
- [chorus vocalizing]
[Deklan] Brother,
when you raise your shield,
so will I.
when you charge at the enemy,
so will I.
And if death awaits us,
calling his warriors home,
let me go die smiling
by your side.
For we are family.
What the hell is this?
- Asshole.
- Oh, stop it.
- Go fuck yourself.
- Avery!
Avery, come on!
You think
you can fuck...
[shallow breathing]
[lock clicks]
[slow dramatic music rises]
- Hold on! Let me grab Brandon!
- Yeah!
- Come on, Brandon!
- Come on! Get in it, guys.
- Everybody.
- All right. You ready?
- Ready? We're gonna take a family picture.
- Smile!
- Can I have a kiss?
- Look at the camera.
- Look at the camera!
- Hey!
One, two...
[all laughing]
