ExPatriot (2017) Movie Script

My name...
My name is Riley...
My name is Riley Connors.
And my father was a us marine.
My name is Riley Connors.
And my father was a us marine.
My first doll was a GI Joe
and until today,
I was an analyst for the CIA.
- Bill.
- Yeah.
Nothing. Never mind.
Still on for dinner tomorrow?
- Mm-hmm.
- Good luck saving the world.
Can't wait for tomorrow.
They're not watching you.
They're watching everyone.
For two years,
I ran a surveillance team
on select us citizens.
We never required a warrant,
and none of these people
have ever been charged
with a crime.
Yet, we watched them.
I watched them...
At their jobs
at their homes,
in their bedrooms
and I won't watch any longer.
Today, I released evidence
of government spying
and illegal surveillance
committed against
these us citizens.
My name is Riley Connors.
You deserve the truth.
What you do with it
is up to you.
It's okay. You did great.
Trust me.
You'll be a hero by tomorrow.
You're doing the right thing.
My name is Riley Connors.
You deserve the truth.
What you do with it
is up to you.
Whistleblower, a traitor
according to the vice
or a former vice-president,
in any event.
Everyone seems so empowered
to stick it to her.
I just hope they're not in some
sort of surveillance...
These disclosures have caused
significant harm to our nation
and to our safety.
The American people look at us
and and asks us, "keep us safe."
She betrayed her country.
Now, she's a traitor.
No, she's not a traitor.
Riley Connors
is keeping America safe.
Safe from our own
tyrannical government.
According to a Reuters poll
23% of Americans think
Riley Connors is a traitor.
Thirty one percent think
she's a patriot.
What are you doing?
Haven't you been listening?
What are you talking about?
Estelle, we're going to win,
just like you said.
Oh, my god.
I'm so sorry.
Everything went wrong.
The homemade explosive detonated
on a public transit bus
just hours ago.
Authorities have named
rob Temmons, a city bus driver
for more than eight years, as
the perpetrator of this attack
which took his own life
along with 16 others.
Sixteen people?
And one of the names
released just a few weeks ago
by the notorious CIA
Whistleblower, Riley Connors.
This is impossible.
Scene with investigators.
It's unclear at this time if
Ms. Connors was a part of this
act of terror
or if she just failed to see...
You're in a private flight
to Columbia.
Find this address
as soon as you arrive.
He's my brother.
He'll look out for you
till we can figure this out.
We need to go, okay? You're not
safe here anymore, Riley.
Please. You understand?
- Come on.
- Cheer up.
You'll go home someday.
Not unless I'm behind bars.
At least you're from a place
where people are prosecuted
not just taken away
during the night.
Estelle's in town.
The usual place.
Thanks. Go finish your rally.
You should come.
Find something new to stand for.
Just tell Estelle I'll be there.
You changed your hair again.
I only have a few hours
until my next shift.
You can find a better job.
And end my penance so early?
You'd love this country
if you ever impact.
Were you able to talk to bill?
He won't meet with me.
I kept him in the dark
to protect him.
I know. He might need more time.
I'm only asking for a few words.
Even if they're
"go fuck yourself"
at least I'd know
I-i still exist to him.
I brought you to Columbia, to my
home because here it's safe.
You can start over.
I'd rather go to prison than
spend another day in this hell.
They'll send you
to Guantanamo, Riley.
Temmons hand washed his uniform
every night after work,
and then just went...
Stop it.
I mean, how does someone like
that just sleep so easily?
Show me the video, I missed
of him planning his attack
breaking the law,
and I'd know I'd screwed up
but he didn't do anything,
he did nothing
until I put his name
on CNN and...
People have moved on
from that story
and you should do the same.
It was never
a story to me, Estelle.
Listen, I opened you
a bank account.
There is money in it
to get you sorted.
- Pity?
- No. A life.
And a part of me
can't move on until you do.
Senora Connors?
How did you find me?
Your friend from the times
is a lot easier
to track than you are.
You owe me a new door, asshole.
Pascal's my liaison down here.
He can be a little overeager.
You're a field agent now?
A lot has changed in two years.
I'm here on assignment.
- To bring me in.
- No.
I think I have a way
to help you.
Get you home.
Riley, I found you
an opportunity.
You need a presidential pardon
but you got to work with me.
No more secrets.
- Bill, what I did...
- I know, Ry.
Let's just put one foot
in front of the other, okay?
I'm listening.
I'm here on a co-op with
the Columbian national police.
Are the Ruiz brothers.
That's Fernando,
the younger brother.
He did a short stint
in the Cuban secret police
before migrating to Columbia
working his way up
in mid-level corporations.
The older one's Carlito.
A rising star
in the secret police
before he left Castro
with his baby brother.
He handles the physical side
of the business.
Fernando's our key.
He operates the largest
boutique banking network
in south America.
How does he get me home?
Turns out the banks
aren't Fernando's
only source of income.
He also owns a piece
of computer gaming site.
Next wave play.
Millions of us members, very
lucrative, completely illegal.
The CIA doesn't police
virtual gaming.
It does when there's millions of
dollars and illegally laundered
money funds domestic terrorists.
Director thinks Fernando's banks
are top financial creditor.
Thinks or knows?
Right now
it's all circumstantial.
We need bank records, accounts,
proof of transfers.
We can't hack him,
and we haven't been able
to get anyone inside until now.
This is the op-center.
It's a basic set-up, but we're
a small team, so it works.
We've got audiovisual
outside the bank.
Here, I'll show you.
I'm not a field agent.
I'm not even an analyst anymore.
Exactly, but you're in.
It's a great cover.
Even the director admitted
you're perfect for the job.
Mm, because I'm expendable.
If this works,
maybe I get a ticket home.
If not, one less CIA traitor
out there.
Agency wins, either way.
It's the only way
I can get you home.
No more watching
from a cubicle, Riley.
You can look this asshole
in the eye and take him down.
Not everyone
gets a second chance.
Not everyone deserves one.
You do.
We both do.
My name is Riley Connors.
My name is Riley Connors.
My name is Riley...
You're doing
that thing where you
say your name to yourself?
You look good.
That's not what
I'm worried about.
I barely know anything
about this guy and...
- I don't trust myself anymore.
- Then trust me.
Forget about the past.
You have a future
to fight for again.
My future or ours?
Uh, I'm sorry.
I don't deserve to ask that,
I shouldn't have...
You, um...
You say what's on your mind.
That's what I love about you.
What I did...
You don't think it was right,
do you?
I think you have a chance
to do the right thing...
This time.
My name is Riley Connors.
Your fortune and your freedom
are in danger.
And you need my help.
I agreed to a meeting
because of your name
but... to employ you
with no resume
no real cybersecurity
It is difficult.
Would you say that the CIA
is cyber secure?
We get CNN in Bogota.
- Then you know my resume.
- Mm-hmm. Yes.
And why no one
will ever hire you.
Plus, I have a head of security.
Do you use packet filter
or a circuit gateway firewalls?
Carlito won't speak to you.
Because I'm a woman?
Because he puts his children on
a bus to school every morning.
But we don't see eye to eye
on everything.
I believe your actions
were quite brave.
- Is Carlito a good bodyguard?
- I am here.
Thanks only to god
and my brother.
And has Carlito ever been shot?
I bet it hurt, but you're damn
good at your job
because you know that pain
and it's your job to protect
your brother from it.
I've never been shot
but I have felt more pain
than most can bear
and I can protect you,
your company
and your fortune from that pain.
You already have government
agencies threatening you
probably for mistakes.
I've beat the CIA once.
Now, you can pay me
to do it again.
What threats?
Well, we can start
with the ones watching
from across the street.
I spotted them
when I came this morning.
Fifth floor,
second office on the left.
- What is she doing?
- Gaining their trust.
Didn't know it was going to be
at our expense.
How did you know that?
There's always someone watching.
The hard part
is finding out who.
And how to stop them.
Perhaps it's time
for a new perspective.
Very good.
Do you believe god forgives us
for our mistakes?
God didn't make the mistake.
Carlito and I served
on Castro's police.
To leave was to desert
to be labeled traitors.
You understand
the gravity of this?
You know I do.
But we made a new home here,
a new life... in Bogota.
What that man did...
Was terrible.
What you did... wasn't.
Thank you, Hermano.
Carlito needs to check you in.
A pleasure, senorita.
So what? You need my birthday?
Remove all metals
and your clothes.
Okay, Castro, I-I'm sorry
if I embarrassed you
in front of your brother.
Will you at least turn around
while I get naked?
Okay, asshole.
Wow. It's beautiful.
You, uh,
trying to kill yourself?
Second time couldn't hurt
much more, right?
What happened there today?
I had to give him something.
Something that made you a little
less expendable to the CIA.
And after, your Mike cut out.
I had to ditch it.
Should we get back?
Don't put me in the dark again.
if I had told you my plan...
You'd be on the run too
or-or worse.
It's not that you didn't tell me
it's that you didn't
say anything at all.
That day,
you were just so... normal.
I'm so sorry.
Then why? Why did you do it?
Why throw away our life together
for people you don't even know?
Do you really want to know
the answer to that?
I think I've earned it.
I wanted to join the agency
my whole life.
It was my dream
to protect people.
And I got it.
I got my dream.
And then one day
I wake up, and I'm the enemy?
I'm the breath on the other end
of the phone line, so I...
I tried to fix it.
And, bill, I...
I'd do it again.
We were going to have a life.
- Remember?
- Don't you think I know that?
So you just didn't give a fuck?
There isn't a day that goes by
that I don't think about
what we lost,
and how to get it back.
Will you look at me?
I wasn't handed
this assignment...
But I fought for it.
To find you.
The Ruiz brothers.
You know, they were
Cuban secret police, don't you?
Yeah, they didn't hide it.
You know what that means, right?
He deserted.
He didn't leave Castro
to reject dictatorship.
He just wanted to be
the one in charge.
Riley, the guys
was in the fucking narcos.
Uh, I can't explain it, but...
He wasn't evil.
Didn't seem evil?
Medellin, 2008.
Fernando tried
to purchase a local bank
they resisted.
They were burned alive.
Fernando did this?
All the more reason
I have to go after him.
No, reason enough
to stay away from him.
- This is how I get home.
- No, it's not.
You're just
trying to redeem yourself
and it doesn't work like that.
And the CIA,
they'll use you and dump you.
Maybe. But I trust bill.
- Last night...
- Hey.
One foot in front of the other.
I'm going to need
to get this guy first.
Same team?
Same team.
We don't have to be enemies.
He probably just wants money.
You're getting this?
Okay, we have access
to the on board computer.
As soon as Fernando
links his mobile to the car
we'll be tracking
and recording every key stroke.
We're good. Disconnect.
- All okay?
- Yeah. These people are just...
Good work, Ry.
We own his ass.
Not a bad start.
You're sure this was the man?
So, what are you hiding,
Mr. Ruiz?
Nando, please.
And they are secrets
for a reason.
In Cuba, Ms. Riley
we knew
when not to ask questions.
If the CIA even thinks
you're a threat
they'll seize your business,
seize your money
and send you back to Cuba.
Do you want that?
My banks hold money
for a large company.
- Fernando.
- EC.
It's an online casino.
Legal here in Colombia.
But most of this money
comes from the states.
My bank simply makes sure
that money appears
to come from other places.
- And where does the money go?
- It doesn't matter.
The CIA will already be
tracking transfers.
We need to rebuild
your firewall from the ground up
and check
each server individually.
Bill's probably already
mauled in to your accounts.
Is that his name?
How do you know this?
As you say, "some things
are secrets for a reason."
You work with Carlito
on every step.
And please
end this bill problem.
I can make your life very
comfortable in Colombia.
You can be someone
of importance here.
As you should be.
In addition to your password,
you'll need to scan in
every time you
want to open the account.
I will also set this up
on Nando's phone
so he can access
the server remotely.
For a crusader, you get in bed
easily with the enemy.
I lost my crusade.
Now, it's just about the money.
Without loyalty, we are nothing.
- You ditched your Mike again.
- Shh, shh, shh.
He's logging into the account.
We have his print.
And his password.
We got you, puta. We got you.
Looks like
I'm headed to the hacienda.
Can I get a minute?
- What the hell was that?
- I'm earning his trust.
You're supposed to be doing that
with your skill, not your ass.
I'm sorry. It's just...
You're doing it again.
It's not like that.
I'm with you.
Same team. Right?
Where did you go last night?
- Was it to see him?
- Uh, no, of course not.
Then who?
Talk to me, trust me for once.
I do.
I'm with you. I promise.
- I love the color so much.
- Yeah?
- Yeah.
- It's too white.
- Easy. Tranquila.
- Hey, hey.
Mm, hmm. Shh, shh, shh.
You hungry?
Hey, hey, hey.
Unh-unh. Unh-unh.
I haven't been horse riding
since I was a kid, you know?
You showed little rust.
Now, no more.
Thank you for this weekend.
It's my pleasure. It's been fun.
It has.
Even Carlito
is warming up to you.
Let's not jump the gun.
Carlito was a big man
in the police, Riley.
A big man.
I'm ashamed to say...
I was not so successful.
There was too much
brutality in that job.
If you couldn't do it...
Your comrades
beat those skills into you.
But no matter
how much I tried...
I could not do it.
I don't think that's anything
to be ashamed of.
It is in Cuba.
I am here because Carlito
gave up everything
to rescue me from that hell.
My brother saved me
before the job could change me.
But he served for much longer.
And it changed him.
Did you ever have a dog?
Yes, I did.
I had one when I was a kid.
Carlito is like a pit bull
bred for the cages.
Taught only to kill.
I was lucky.
But god never sent
Carlito a brother
strong enough to save him.
I wonder sometimes
if he can tell the difference
between right and wrong.
We all struggle... with that
I think.
- To new beginnings.
- To new beginnings.
To new beginnings.
He believes god protects him.
The scars?
Cuban education.
I'm sorry,
I just saw the light on.
It's okay.
Is there anything you need?
No, I'm fine.
Yes, sir, I know.
I was wrong before.
You're a very brave girl.
So, with the patron
did you have to go
more and more undercover?
Yes, sir, we'll make it happen.
Director says
we're going tomorrow.
It's too soon.
He already had her
for a sleepover. It's time.
You're going to be fine.
This stays in today, Ry.
I don't want you going dark
on me for even a second.
- Clear?
- Clear.
Good, 'cause it's my last one.
I love you. And everything's
going to work out.
I promise.
let's go through this again.
Step one, get the Ruizs
out of the building.
I've got more information
on bill.
Can you meet me at the hacienda?
We can be there in 20 minutes.
Pascal will have eyes on
Fernando throughout the op.
If he moves,
we'll know about it.
Riley will gain entrance
through his office.
I will run the show from our
mobile unit across the street.
His personal computer
is the only portal
set up for major transfers.
So this is our window
to move the money
into the CIA's offshore account.
Then, we process the evidence
and first thing tomorrow,
the cnp is kicking down
Ruiz's front door.
With pleasure.
Then, we go home.
- Buenos Dias.
- Buenos Dias, Ms. Evans.
Senor Ruiz asked me to upload
some new security.
Okay, let me just call him.
- Please, go right ahead.
- Gracias.
Fernando's still at home.
How is the transfer going?
Already moved about 60 million
from more accounts
than I thought.
Keep at it. Plenty of time.
Bill, there's more here.
I've got evidence connecting
Fernando to Medellin bank
he and Carlito burned down.
We are here
for the gambling money.
That's all the CIA cares about.
I'm talking about murder,
bill. Human lives.
Damn it, Riley.
For once, stick to the plan.
I can get both.
Your pardon is for helpin' us
seize the money, that is it.
Bill, Carlito's leaving.
Stay calm,
we have a bit of a problem.
Car's on the move.
Where? Moving where?
He's going to the bank.
If she need more time, we need
to do something right now.
Looks like he's headed back
to the bank.
Maybe, seven minutes out.
Take control of the on board
computer. Shut it down.
Okay, Hermano, let's see
how you drive with no engine.
He stopped.
Stabbed him cold, babe.
Scratch that.
Pascal, do you have him?
Bill, he's stealing other car.
What's happening?
Carlito's on his way
to the bank.
- Just Carlito?
- Yeah, and he's on to us.
Make the transfer and get gone.
- Riley?
- Almost there.
Just get the money and go.
He's in the building.
Get out, get out now.
I'm headed down the stairs.
Bill, I'm on the way down.
I can buy you some time,
but you need to get the hell
out of there.
Bill, I made it outside.
Where are you?
Bill? Bill?
I trusted you, Riley.
I know about Medellin.
Bill? Bill, where are you?
Bill, can you see me?
I'm outside. Where are you?
Where is she? Where is she?
Where is she?
Where is she?
I got it, bill.
All the money. I got it.
Carlito? Carlito?
You did great.
We all did.
Riley, you really deserve this.
Time to go home.
You traitor!
You actually thought you could
be forgiven for what you did?
The CIA's never even heard
a Fernando Ruiz
and they certainly don't
give a shit about you!
You feel bad?
For all those people
on that bus?
I loved you.
What about me?
What about our kids?
You ran away.
I've lived with your mistake
every single day.
Do you know what it's like
to be fucking the enemy?
My name is Riley Connors.
My name is Riley Connors.
It was...
It was more than we talk about.
I told you it was about money.
Not about messing
after your girlfriend.
Just stay here.
I handle this.
He's a cop, man. He's a cop.
You'll handle it? Huh?
What are you fucking doing?
We have to go!
Come on.
- Come on.
- No, I can't.
- Uhh...
- Sit.
Riley, look at me. Look at me.
You okay?
Let me get you home. Come on.
Hey. Easy.
You'll break the stitches.
When did you transfer
to med school?
None of your peace rally
ends peacefully.
Did Estelle make you follow me?
Estelle didn't make me
do anything.
I wanted to.
Even if that meant
taking on the CIA.
I don't think it was them.
I think it was just bill,
on his own, after the money.
Hey, easy.
You need a new bandage.
Yeah. Uh...
That's my thesis.
"The tortured hero?"
Yeah, you're alright.
You don't get to choose
when to tell the truth.
You are a hero.
Heroes don't exist.
Just martyrs. Ohh...
Hey. Let me change it.
Aa-ah! Ahh!
Breathe in, breathe out.
Hold on, hold on.
Come on, drama queen.
Easy. Breathe.
Estelle ever tell you
we're not Columbian?
My family was from Argentina.
Like you.
My parents were called traitors
for standing up to the huelga.
Ann then the police came,
took 'em away
and... we never saw our father
or mother again.
I don't even remember them.
They were called Desaparecidos.
Disappeared ones.
Loaded on to aircrafts
and flown over the Atlantic.
Death flights, they called them.
I'm still alive.
They were thrown
out of the plane.
I'm sorry.
Sorry won't bring them back.
What do we do now?
Give me your computer.
Senor, I'm afraid
we have a slight problem here.
What problem?
I'm sorry, but your balance
is way below
your withdrawal amount.
That's impossible.
There are millions of dollars
in that account.
I'm sorry.
That's not it.
Ay-ay-ay, sir. Excuse me, sir.
What's happening?
- What's happening?
- It's empty.
That bitch.
What's your favorite charity,
Remember the consequences when
you try to do something good.
I will never forget
what happened to those people
and I will never forget
how badly I misjudged you.
How could you sink to this?
After what you did,
what choice did I have, huh?
The CIA was never
going to trust me again.
I was an embarrassment.
The analyst sleeping with our
country's biggest traitor.
I was going to be somebody.
Instead I met you.
You're Riley Connors,
and you ruined my life.
You'll be back
in the spotlight soon.
Enjoy being me.
Bill? Bill, look.
We need to go.
Thank god you got away.
Hey, hey, Estelle,
it was my fault.
I should have listened to you.
I'm ready now.
What do you want to do?
I have contacts at the DOJ.
Rogue agent, theft, murder.
This could be in the front page
of every newspaper in America.
If we keep it
out of the headlines
they'll be begging
to cut you a deal.
We can still get you back home.
I just want to put bill away.
I don't care after that.
I do.
Where did you hide
all that money anyway?
The bank account
that you opened for me.
I doubt that we have more than
a day before it gets flagged.
I was not going to put it
into that CIA slush fund.
You listen to yourself.
I'll get that.
Jaime was right.
That proves
they were behind the fire.
Records, photographs...
They're murderers.
I'll make sure these
gets into the right hands.
Don't move, bill.
Don't move, bill.
No. Sister? Sister?
We have to go! I'm so sorry!
We have to go! Please, let's go!
I'm sorry, I'm sorry,
we have to go.
I don't know what to say.
This bus runs
all the way to Cali.
From there, you can slip in
to Ecuador and disappear.
Riley, I'm not stupid.
Estelle knew the dangers
and so do I.
I am the danger.
Don't you see that?
Everything I touch
turns to shit.
So, you'll just run away again?
I didn't say I was running.
Get on the bus.
- Go ahead, Mona, go ahead.
- Okay, okay, okay.
- Put the gun away, Pascal.
- You know me.
You know me, Mona. You know...
Pascal, where the fuck are you?
Did you enjoy watching him?
He did a good job with my face,
didn't he?
You shouldn't have run.
No one was supposed
to get hurt here.
You killed a cop.
No. I didn't pull the trigger.
I didn't pull the trigger.
I didn't pull the trigger.
Tell me where the money is,
And I'll make sure
you both live.
I'm talking to you.
Give me the account. Okay?
Bill is not in charge.
Now I in charge, okay?
What are you going to do?
Stop bill from killing us?
Pascal, Pascal, Pascal!
No, no, no, no!
Fuck! Fuck!
Aren't you going to ask me?
I thought you want to know
where the money is.
I will find out.
If you want to get the guy
that screwed you
then you should answer that.
Look, Carlito, bill screwed with
both of us. Including him.
I-I can bring him to you.
where the hell have you been?
Lonely, isn't it?
No friends, nowhere to run.
Are you scared
of your own shadow yet?
Where's Pascal?
You should choose
your partners more carefully.
We both know
you can't pull the trigger.
I didn't have to.
He couldn't wait to flip on you.
Only question now
is what charity
I should give the rest to?
You still think
there's forgiveness
for people like you?
You could give away
a billion dollars
and you will still
be Riley Connors.
The bitch who killed a bus
full of innocent people.
I know.
Sure did all you could do.
This is what
it must've been like...
With my parents.
That way. That way.
Hey. Hey, hey!
Easy, Carlito.
- Okay!
- Hey!
- I kill you now.
- Easy, Carlito.
I kill you.
Please, look at me.
Look at me.
Please don't do this.
I have all the money, please.
Please, Fernando,
look at me, look at me.
Don't look at him. Look at me.
Look at me.
I'm sorry.
No, no, no. No, no, no. No.
Jaime. Jaime.
- No, no, no. No. No, no.
- I'll kill you.
Please, stop. Stop, stop, stop!
Please, please!
No, no, no. No, no, no. No, no.
Wait, it was me
who stole the money.
What do you want?
I have all the money.
Account 1-4-95-4-56-4-9.
Every penny is in a local
checking account.
It's all yours.
No, no, no, Fernando.
Fernando, look...
Please, don't do this!
Fernando, look at me.
This isn't you.
I'm sorry, Riley.
I have to do this.
No, Fernando!
Please, don't!
Fernando, look at me.
This isn't you.
Don't listen to him.
Hey, hey. Hey, hey,
just look at me. Look at me.
Look at what he did!
Fernando, Fernando,
help me get him up.
Look at me.
Fernando! Fernando!
Look at me. Look at me.
He's dead. That was bill.
Please, please, please.
Look at me. Look at me.
He's dead and we need to go.
Otherwise bill will
kill us both.
We need to get out of here,
and you need to help us, please.
Please, I need help.
Please. Look at me.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry,
but you have to help us now.
- Lito!
- He's dead. Please, I'm sorry.
I'm so sorry I made a mistake.
- Okay. Okay.
- Okay.
Riley, before you get someone
else killed, give me the money.
Hey, hey.
She doesn't have the money. Huh.
She already
transferred it back to me.
And I'll rather let it burn. Mm?
You want to die?
Hey! Hey!
Hey, hey, hey...
Are you okay?
What now?
We go home.
Wherever we want.
