Herself (2020) Movie Script

[Molly] Done.
I'm doing your eyes now.
[Sandra] Okay. Cool.
What d'ya call that again?
Molly, you know it's her birthmark.
Why do you always ask?
Why do you have it and nobody else, Mam?
I already told you, love,
I was born with it.
All right.
I was in God's pocket,
and He had me in His art shop,
and He said,
"Ah, if I have to find you,
I'm just gonna have to give you
a little mark because there's...
[both] ...loads of Sandras in Dublin!"
Yeah, well,
we won't cover it then.

Jays, will yous let me get in the door?
Will you do something for me?
Will you go outside and play

- [Sandra] Oh, Gary.
Please, I don't want to go out.
[Sandra] It's cold out.
- They've coats. Go on. Out.
- [Molly] Please, please.
[Sandra] Come on. Come here.
- Black Widow.
- Now?
Taped under a seat of the car.
Oh, you're planning your escape?
[heavy breathing]
[horse neighs]
[eerie music playing]
[heavy breathing]
[Emma] Call the guards!
Hurry up, it's me Mammy!
[screams, cries]
[Gary] Take your fucking money.
You did this. It's your fault.
[Emma] Here. I'll do it.
Good girl.
[Sandra] Oh, Em, that is amazing.
Shading and everything!
Can you take a picture and send it to Dad?
You can show him Saturday.
Erm, okay.
[Emma] Where will the new house be?
[Sandra] I don't know, love.
Here, do you wanna kiss
Granny's wedding ring
and make a wish for a new house?
How long has Granny
Michelle been in heaven?
Going on six months now, love.
I left my hair bobbin in her house.
[indistinct chatter]
[airplane flying overhead]
[Molly] Did you sign my test copy?
[Sandra] Yeah, I signed it last night.
[music playing on radio]
[exhales sharply]
[Sandra sighs] Come on.
[woman on radio] ...hotel will
be the tallest in the capital
and is part of a
150-million-euro development.
[music playing on radio]
Don't put that--
Here. I'll carry that.
I'll carry it.
Go, go, go.
Gorgeous. Bye.
- You be good in school, yeah?
- Bye.
Bye. Love you. Bye.
Here. Take your bag.
Right. Go.
[Sandra] It's only me,
Dr. O'Toole. Sorry I'm late.
The traffic this morning...
[Peggy shouting] Oh, fuck off!
[knocks on door]
- [Peggy sighs]
- [Sandra] Do you need a hand?
Stupid thing.
[Peggy scoffs]
[Sandra] Did your one turn up last night?
Oh, God.
They sent a replacement.
He tried to put me to bed at half past six.
- Ow!
- Sorry. Sorry.
I'll do that.
- Have you taken your tablets?
- Yes.
Just help me through.
I've already wasted half the morning.
Oh, how does this bloody thing go?
Get a grip on it.
- Up you go.
- Right.
Just take it easy now, all right?
Nice and steady. Take your time.
I broke my hip in a field hospital
in Africa, Sandra,
not tripping over in Marks & Spencer's.
Would you please stop making me
feel like an old woman?
How's himself behaving?
Access visits going okay?
Well, he's been kicked out of the house.
The landlord is selling.
He's at his ma's and da's now.
So, he wouldn't do anything there.
Well, if he does,
remember you have a
three-year safety order.
He lays a hand on you,
it goes straight to the criminal court.
Jo, we can't go on being
this far from the school.
You have to keep on to
the council about that.
I am, Jo,
but it's costing me over
thirty euro a week in petrol.
Just keep telling yourself,
it's temporary.
Only temporary. Now, hang on.
I have-- A-ha!
I got a tip-off.
Kimmage. Fully-furnished
and the landlord takes rent supplement.
Give him a buzz.
Oh, Sandra, I have forms for you to fill.
Hang on.
Jo, I don't have time.
I'm late for work.
Go, I'll drop them round.
Sandra, give the men's
a good clean, will you?
Young fella left them in
an awful state last night.
[Sandra] Right.
It's just that you said
- that I could leave earlier.
- What? If you're finished.
You're nowhere near done yet.
[Amy] Prick.
Tell him to go fuck himself, Sandra.
Where are you living these days, Amy?
A squat, up in Rathmines.
It's a fucking shithole, like,
but the humans are sound, so...
[Emma] Watch it. Watch it.
Do you want a zap?
Oh, dang it. Watch it. Zap!
[Sandra] I'm sorry.
I told Ms. Doyle I would wait with them.
[Sandra] I called ahead to say
I was late. Thanks a million.
Mam, we made Saint Brigid crosses.
[Sandra] Aw, deadly.
You can show me in the car.
[Molly] Okay.
Well, Rosa's taking Lucia
to the park. Can we go?
Not today, love.
We never get to!
All right, Emma. Another day.
- We have to go.
- Maybe we could have a playdate?
[kids] Yay! Playdate. Playdate.
Will I take your number?
[kids] Playdate. Playdate.
[Rosa] Now you have mine.
No excuses.
- [Emma] Yeah! Dad!
- [Gary] Ah!
Oh! There's a hug.
Did you miss me?
- [Emma] Yeah.
- [Gary] Yeah. Daddy missed you.
Go on. I'll see you in a few days.
Come on, Molly, sweetheart, please.
She's got a cough.
There's medicine in her bag.
I'd say five ml will do at bedtime.
Okay, great. Yeah.
Because I've never
actually been a dad before.
Don't be making a scene, Gary.
I don't want the neighbours
thinking that my son
is any more of a fuck-up
than he already is.
[Sandra] Bye.
[Michael] If yous are having
a row, get inside.
Home sweet home, huh?
[Emma] Granny Tina.
[Gary] Look, what are we doing, Sandra?
Do you think this is good for the girls?
[breathing heavily]
[eerie music playing]
[inhales deeply, exhales]
[car engine starts]
[indistinct chatter]
[man] Miss? Miss?
Excuse me.
May I remind you of the rules?
You can't come through here.
[airplane flying overhead]
[classical music playing on radio]
[packet rustling]
All right, that's me, Dr. O'Toole.
Mind yourself on the floor,
there. It's still drying.
I'll talk to you.
Don't know why we bothered.
None of us are gonna get to see this gaff.
[indistinct chatter]
[woman] Told you. Shoulda worn me suit.
Sorry, guys.
[Sandra] Heya. Did you have a nice time?
Yeah. Daddy got us new runners.
- Mine flash.
- [Sandra] Ah, cool.
[Gary] Yeah, they were so good
for their nanny and grandad.
Thought they deserved a little treat.
[Sandra] Emma, come on.
Need a hand with that belt, Mol?
[Molly] No.
Big girl now.
Here. I got a little bonus.
There's so much work out
there for joiners now.
You can take your pick.
It's like back in the day.
I'm getting help.
I'm seeing a counsellor.
I didn't walk out, which,
I mean, I wanted to but...
I stayed.
Emma, come on.
[car engine starts]
Mam says you can stay
if we wanna try again.
Try and make it work.
For them.
Uh, I have to go.
[Emma] Oh, look.
That is so cool.
Don't touch that.
You're asking a thousand for this?
[landlord] It's cheap for the area.
I'll take rent allowance,
and it's available.
'Course it's available.
[landlord] We'll obviously
fix the electrics,
paint it up a bit, before you move in.
I'd rather stick my head in there.
Bleeding disgrace.
[Emma] Bleeding disgrace.
[Sandra] You're a bleeding disgrace.
Uh, sorry, you're the disgrace!
Here, go on and mind Molly,
and watch the cars.
[Molly screaming]
Ah! Oh, my God.
I'm dead as... [groans]
[Molly] You can't be dead.
We need you for chips!
[Emma giggles]
- Tickle her.
- [Molly] Tickle her.
[all chuckling]
[Sandra] Please stop...
- Mummy is...
- [Molly] Under the arms.
[Sandra] Come here, you little messers!
Yous only need me for chips, do yous?
- [Emma] Hmm. Yeah.
- Uh-hmm.
All right. That's it.
I'm gonna eat ya! [growls]
[all chuckling and squealing]
All right. Do you want some real chips?
- Yeah.
- [Molly] Yeah.
All right. Come on.
Do you wanna hear a bedtime story
about St. Brigid?
[sighs] Yeah. Go on.
So, Brigid prays to God and says,
"Will you make the King
of Ireland's heart all soft,
'cause it's gone icy and
like a rock or something."
And God did and she smiled
and said to the king,
"Will you give me as much land
as this cloak will cover?"
'Cause she was wearing this cloak,
just normal size, right?
She bends down and the cloak is magic,
with the Holy God Spirit in it,
and she tells her four sisters with her...
They were like her sidekicks, right?
They take a corner each and spread it out
all over the land,
and it goes out for miles.
It's just like a miracle.
And then the king says,
"Well, Brigid, what's the story?
How did you do that?"
And Brigid says, "It's 'cause
you're being so stingy
with all the poor people in your land."
And he says, "All right then,
you can have loads of me land."
And she gets it and starts a convent,
and helps all the people in the town.
They start a farm where they made jam
with the berries on the land.
Like a little community
centre type of thing.
But then, everyone was grand.
How do you remember all that?
I don't like the way my teacher says it,
so I remember it my own way.
She's got a real moany voice.
[choral music playing on radio]
[water gushing]
[Sandra] Thirty-five thousand.
Twelve by four.
[choral music continues]
[choral music continues]
[Ciaran] You'll learn as you build.
You need very, very few skills
to be part of a team
that'll build a house.
Pass on the skills to your children.
[choral music continues]
What can I do for you?
I want to build a house.
Um, these are some of the vacant sites
that you have going spare.
And the addresses are on the back.
And this is how much it would cost me
for the materials and a plumber
and an electrician.
It's 35,000 euro.
You see, I figured out
that I cost you 33,000
in rent and welfare in one year alone.
Um... and at number 653
on the housing list,
that's three or four years
keeping us in hotels,
which should cost you 120,000,
maybe even more.
But, if you lend me the money
and let me use a site,
then I could have that built by Christmas,
and be paying you rent for the house.
Do you see what I mean?
You'd even be making a profit.
I'm really sorry. [stamps paper]
I can't help you with this.
[airplane flying overhead]
[knocks on door]
[Sandra] Dr. O'Toole...
Dr. O'Toole?
Hello? Can you hear me?
Dr. O'Toole?
Listen, it's Sandra, your cleaner.
Wake up. Come on.
- Peggy?
- Yeah.
Oh, thank God.
Dr. O'Toole, it's me.
- Will I call an ambulance?
- [groans]
- No. I probably should.
- No, no, no.
- Just to be safe.
- No. It's fine.
Stop fussing.
I must have fainted.
I've not been able to eat.
Are you sure now?
Because you have a cut.
No. Well, if I was a horse
they'd shoot me, but I'm not.
I'm a doctor, and I'd know if
I needed to go to the hospital.
So help me get up.
- Okay.
- Give me a hand.
- You ready?
- [both grunting]
Right. All good. I'm just gonna
walk you back here.
Right. Easy.
Sit down there now. Yeah.
- [Peggy groans]
- Are you all right?
- Hmm.
- Okay.
Do you feel dizzy or anything?
Why didn't you ask me?
Ask you?
Ask you what?
I have designed a house
that costs just 35,000 euros to build.
It's a self-build,
so you can literally DIY a permanent home.
I didn't mean for you to see that.
Well, I did,
so here's my proposal.
[birds chirping]
[Peggy] It's land, Sandra, going to waste.
Use it.
Build a house for you and your girls.
Dr. O'Toole, this...
Why would you do this?
Your mother was far more
than a cleaner to me.
She was a friend.
She helped me through
some bloody awful times.
I want to give you the land...
and lend you the money to build your house.
[sniffles] Nah, this is mad.
- You can't.
- I can.
And you can pay me back,
over as many years as we decide.
What do you say?
[exhales sharply]
Is that a yes?
Uh, yeah.
[laughs shakily]
[sniffles] Yeah.
All right, now get back to work.
Good woman.
[birds chirping]
[Ciaran] These are approximate figures
so you need to check all the costs
before you commit.
Where'd you get this?
- Uh, online.
- Online. [sighs]
Are these costs inclusive of VAT?
Value added tax.
Are these prices plus or including?
Yeah, I think-- I'd say so.
'Cause there's a big difference.
Yeah, I know.
I'll be with you in a sec there.
Dunno what that is.
Do you know what thickness
of insulation it is?
There's loads of sizes, like.
Oh, yeah, no, uh...
I'll-- I'll ask.
Never heard of it.
What about, um, like, basic concrete?
Well, that's actual ready mix.
It's not bags?
No. Concrete would have to come
in a truck, in cubic meters.
You'd have to go to Roadstone.
Do you mind if I serve this fella?
Yes, my friend, what can I get you?
Some manners.
Bit of courtesy.
- [Dave] What?
- What?
You're Customer Service.
Serve the customer.
She's only after a price check.
It's not rocket science.
You're throwing away the good bit.
Can I ask your advice on something?
I'm building a house, like a self-build.
- Right.
- And I'm only starting but...
I don't know where to start, I suppose?
Where's your site?
Have you got a field?
A back garden.
A woman I work for is giving me the land.
Giving you it?
Why is she doing that?
Trying not to think about it too much.
I would.
Nobody does anything for nothing,
not in this country.
Well, I wouldn't live in it,
but it's a roof and four walls,
so what else do you need?
You wouldn't come and have a look,
- would you?
- No, I can't, love.
I have a flue to install,
on a job that's growing arms and legs.
It's only around the corner.
I can't help you.
I can't afford to.
Look, you don't know me,
but I think you worked with my ex, Gary.
Gary Mullen?
[birds chirping]
- It's possible.
- But?
You're gonna need somebody
who knows what they're doing.
He means a man.
No, I mean a person who's qualified
to handle compliances, put in for planning.
Could you be that person?
I don't do contracts.
I haven't done one in ages.
[Peggy] We could pay you.
We could pay you a consultancy fee or--
for an agreed amount of days.
[Aido] Look, even if you do get planning,
I'm guessing you're gonna want
somebody who's gonna work
every weekend for next to nothing.
I'm no use to you.
And I've just had a health scare.
Dicky ticker.
- [Grainne] There you are!
- [Peggy] Grainne!
Have a word with the architect, hmm?
See if he has any ideas.
I'm sorry, can't help you.
[Grainne] Aren't you meant
to be convalescing?
What are you doing?
Sorry, but do you know each
other well enough to do this?
She's Michelle's daughter.
And Michelle was lovely,
and a really good cleaner, but...
But what?
She used to help herself to Dad's whiskey.
Well, she did us all a favour there.
I'm sorry, Sandra,
could I just have a moment with Mum?
No, Sandra, stay.
[Grainne] Look, at the end of the day,
it's none of my business.
I get it.
It's your land, your choice, but...
What are you gonna do about Aisling's Den?
- [Peggy] Knock it down.
- [Sandra] I'll let you--
- I shouldn't be...
- [Peggy] No, Sandra.
- See you tomorrow, Dr. O'Toole.
- [Peggy] Come back.
What you doing in the car?
It's not even raining?
"How was your day, Mammy?"
"Grand, thank you, Emma."
How was your day, Mammy?
"Grand, thank you, Emma."
- [Emma] Green.
- [Molly] Green.
- [indistinct chatter on TV]
- [water gushing]
- [indistinct shouting]
- [screaming]
Yeah, I've been ringing round
loads of builders.
Nobody's gonna work weekends.
[Ciaran] You've only got to say
"self-build" to a builder
and he'll run a mile.
You are gonna need an expert.
the only person that would
do this for nothing is me
and I'm not back till next year.
Can you wait?
["Brewing Up a Storm" playing]
[Molly] Mom, where are we going?
[Sandra] To see a man about a job.
[singer] Honey, if the truth hurts
Don't look, it might go away
It's easy to pretend
That life is a rosy bouquet
- Brewing up a Storm
- [buzzing]
- [music continues through radio]
- Brewing up a storm
- Dad.
- What?
Oh, it's all right, Francis,
I know this girl.
[Aido] And you don't know
anyone else who can help you?
[Sandra] No. Barely know anyone,
to be honest,
living with Gary the last 10 years.
We're in temporary accommodation.
Oh, it's hell. We had no choice.
Had to get away from him.
Well, you did well to get away from them.
- Some family, eh?
- Hmm. Yeah.
[sighs] Look, Sandra, here's the thing.
Gifts of land, plans off the Internet,
everything on the cheap,
off your own back...
And if I wasn't on the site all the time...
I'm sorry, darling,
there's just too many risks
for everyone.
No harm in asking.
- [Francis] Dad.
- [Aido] Hmm?
Are you a size six?
These are me old pair.
Take them.
You'll probably need them for the site.
Are you serious?
Well, let's see how we get on
with the planning first, huh?
Good boy, Francis.
[indistinct chatter]
[Molly] Hey, I don't have knots in my hair.
[knocking on door]
[knocking on door]
[Jo] Hi, Sandra.
It's Jo, from Women's Aid.
Uh, Jo?
Uh, one second.
Hi. Just a fly-by visit.
Uh, council is carrying out
another assessment
of housing needs.
As if we didn't know already.
Houses are needed,
Christ Almighty.
Hey, Emma, hey, Molly.
- [both] Hi.
- [Jo] Have you just had a bath?
- [both] Yeah.
- You look squeaky-clean!
You're still one parent,
and he's been keeping up
on the maintenance, has he?
He has, yeah. No difference.
It's grand.
Just the maintenance affects
how your rent allowance gets calculated.
Oh, sure. Yeah, no, I remember.
It's red tape,
but once it's done, it's done.
And it's not going to change much,
unless you've won the lotto,
and you're not telling me!
[Jo laughs]
Listen, give me a ring if you need help
filling it out, okay?
- Bye, girls.
- [both] Bye.
Bye-bye. See ya.
Why are you being weird?
Do yous wanna get some milkshakes?
[Emma shrieks]
[Sandra] Go on.
[girls giggling]
[exclaims] Come here, quick.
Go on. Catch her.
- [Emma] A house?
- [Sandra] Mm-hmm.
- [Emma] Our own house?
- [Sandra] Mm.
At the bottom of a garden?
Like a fairy-house?
[Sandra] Yeah. I suppose so.
Can we help?
Can I have a builder's hat?
[Sandra] We'll see.
The only thing is, girls,
and this is really important, right...
we can't tell anyone.
Not anyone in school.
Not Nanny, not Grandad, and especially...
especially not Daddy.
I'm just going by what
Aido the builder said.
He said that's the rules,
and you've seen him, right?
[Sandra] Ya don't wanna
mess with him, do you?
- No.
- [Emma] No.
So we have to keep this to ourselves, yeah?
Our own special secret.
Like Black Widow?
Sort of.
What's that?
Oh, it's just a codeword.
It's better ya don't know.
Yeah. So...
No telling, okay?
- Mm-hmm.
- [Sandra] Pinky promise?
- [Molly] One, two, three.
- One, two, three.
- [Molly] Pinky promise!
- Pinky promise!
[chuckles] Oh, girls.
[Emma] Molly! Come on.
[Sandra] Girls, come on.
This way, this way.
[girls giggling]
[music playing on radio]
[Peggy] Sandra?
Would you drop what you're
doing and come here, please?
[Sandra gasps]
- We're off.
- [Sandra chuckles]
Oh, my God.
Oh, there she is.
Great to see you out and about, Peggy.
- Watch me go, Nathan.
- [Nathan laughs]
This is a new day
I'm gonna win it
- Amy?
- Yeah?
How are you fixed for weekends these days?
Hmm, got a new car and I'm gonna drive
Twenty metal brackets,
a Sledgehammer, spirit level,
and a bag of lime.
I'm gonna walk out that door
I'm telling you now
You ain't gonna see me no more
Hey, hey, hey
Because I got new shoes
Hey, hey, hey
I got new shoes
Hey, hey, hey
I said hey, hey, hey, hey
[Aido] Health and safety
is number one on this site.
It's all about the hat, and the boots,
and knowing where not to be.
You see that eucalyptus tree?
Well, beyond that is command and control.
That is your work area.
Don't be coming down here.
Builders don't like their bosses
watching over them.
On you go.
[girls laughing]
You okay with this?
We'll let herself do the honours.
It's your home.
You break ground.
[Amy] Go on, Sandra.
[Sandra chuckles]
[Aido] Imagine you have four
metres from the middle of that.
[Sandra] Right.
- This is what gives us hope.
- [Amy] I know.
[Aido] Check it.
- [Amy] Four metres here, yeah?
- [Aido] Exactly?
- Yeah, exactly four metres.
[Sandra] From the centre
of the thing, is it, Aido?
- [Aido] Nice work.
- [Amy] All right.
[Sandra] You got it?
[hammer pounding]
[Aido] Well done.
["Run for Cover" by The Killers playing]
Run for cover
While you can, baby don't look back
You got to run for cover
Don't be afraid of the fear
That's a played-out trap man
I know your not the only one
i And don't look back,
Just run for cover
[Peggy] Can I see that?
[music continues on radio]
[Emma] I want mine first.
[Sandra] Okay. Bath first,
and then Frozen later.
I don't wanna hear--
Yeah, I know,
but I don't wanna go too late,
'cause the other night,
yous were up to all hours.
- [Emma] Dad!
- [Gary] Oh! [laughs]
Look at the state of you.
You okay, Mols?
Where've yous been playing,
in the bog, is it?
[Sandra] Emma.
Take your sister inside.
- Emma, go on.
- Come on.
[Emma] Come on, Molly.
Sandra, Look, I just wanted to--
What are you doing?
Yeah. I made you dinner, take it.
You're not supposed to be here.
I'm not asking to come in
and eat with yous,
Sandra, Jes--
I just want them to have a hot meal.
And you could use one, too.
You're wasting away there.
It's mad, isn't it?
We could all just get into that car now.
We could just go back.
To what, Gary?
I don't know what's happened.
[Gary] Oh, that's a great idea, Sandra.
End up some lonely fuck-up like your ma!
[breathing heavily]
[exhales deeply]
[girls chatting indistinctly]
[mechanical whirring]
What are you doing?
Taking an action shot for me Instagram.
Throw that in there again.
No! No photos, Amy.
Not of me, or the kids,
or the site, all right?
And don't put nothing online!
All right. Relax.
Just thought you wanted
to document the thing
like you were on Grand Designs, no?
[Aido] Far in.
That's it. Side to side,
and towards yourself.
We don't want any dips in the middle.
We don't want the water
to run off the edges, you know.
Keep coming towards yourself.
Side to side, up and down.
[Sandra gasps, groans]
[Aido] You all right?
Um, yeah. I just--
I just need to--
I'll be back in a sec, all right?
[Peggy] Okay, put away your homework now.
Time to eat.
Codeine does nothing for nerve damage.
Yeah. Well, it helps.
[Molly] Ma, Ma, Ma, Ma, Ma...
- Look what I made.
- Lovely, love.
- Uh, Molly?
- Yeah.
I think you need the loo.
No, I don't.
I can see you holding it in.
Go on.
- You all right, Sandra?
- [exhales]
Listen, we're gonna need more
people next weekend.
We can't keep going with three.
Yeah. All right.
Um, this is a bit mad,
but I'm building a house,
like, uh, a self-build thing,
and I need a hand
for a few weekends over the summer.
And I was wondering, like--
and only if it suits and if you're around,
um, if you'd want to help?
Oh, here, I should--
I should, uh,
write it down for you,
um, it's...
Look, I know I've not been--
Like, I know that we've not talked much,
but you just always--
Look, here's the address, um...
And, like, there's no pressure.
You're probably busy, or going away.
[Molly] We got to watch Moana
and play games.
[Sandra] You did?
So, look, I'll leave it with you anyway.
[indistinct chatter]
[Sandra] Molly, come on.
[Molly] No. No.
[Sandra] Get out of the wardrobe.
- We have to go.
- No, I don't want to go.
Dad won't let her watch Frozen.
Leave me alone.
Molly, will you let go of the handle?
[tearful] No.
[Sandra] Molly, you might trap your finger.
[Sandra] Right. Enough.
[Molly sniffling, sobbing]
Molly, what is going on?
Come here.
[Molly cries]
- Did you...
- [Molly] No. No!
Come here to me, pet. Come here.
It's all right. It's okay.
Come here, I'm so sorry.
What's wrong?
Molly, do you want to play with Pony?
Did you take that from Peggy's?
No, she gave it to us.
It was Aisling's.
Aisling's up in heaven
with Granny Michelle.
Do you wanna stay with me today, Molly?
She's not herself.
Could be a kidney infection.
So she wants to stay with me.
Hey, Molly?
Do you know what your Granny Tina's made?
Your favourite, eggy bread.
There's gonna be none left.
All right, come on, let's go. Out.
- [Molly] Stop! [screams]
- Molly, will ya calm down?
You're being a baby!
Gary, don't hurt her.
The only reason she's acting up
is 'cause she knows
she can get what she wants.
Now, she's messing both of us
about here, Sandra.
All right then.
Your sister's gonna get all the treats.
[car door slams shut]
[car engine starts]
[Sandra] You all right, love?
- [Aido] We got tools...
- [Amy] Sandra.
- Hey, missus.
- Hey.
I brought a few heads from the squats
- to give us a hand.
- Oh, my God, Amy.
One of them even knows what he's doing!
- Dariusz.
- Hiya.
[Aido] What's your trade again, Dariusz?
Construction and, uh, Deliveroo.
[Amy] This is Yewande from...
Sligo. Originally Cameroon.
- Nice to meet you.
- [Sandra] Same here.
And, uh, Tome, from, uh, down the road.
- What's the story?
- Hi.
[Aido] I brought somebody, too.
Hello, Sandra.
- Hi.
- Good to see you.
Hi, Francis.
- Remember this girl?
- Hello, Molly.
- [Molly] Hi.
- Everyone, this is Molly.
- [All] Hi, Molly.
- [Aido] All right, Molly,
if we're gonna start work,
where would you go?
Command and control.
Good girl. Off you go then.
Good girl.
- See you later.
- Bye.
[Tomo] Bye, Molly.
See you later.
Right, people. Are we gonna
help this woman build her house?
[All] Yeah.
All right. Sandra's house
is made up of five frames.
In each frame, there are two columns.
There's a central piece,
which is 3,400 millimetres long,
or 3.4 metres.
Each column is made up of
seven different pieces of wood.
Two are the same, at the top,
two are the same in the middle,
and two are the same in the bottom.
Measure twice, out once.
["Titanium" by David Guetta playing]
I'm talking loud not saying much...
Oh, okay. Yeah.

...bolt right through here,
so we're using this tool.
But all your bullets ricochet...
[Aido] Okay.
[Amy] Oh, Jesus, come on...
[Aido] Okay. One of them's upside down.
[Tomo] Definitely theirs.
[Aido] After three.
One, two, three.
- [Dariusz] Oh, Jesus.
- [Aido] That's it.
Now come, keep walking, okay?
Amy and Tomo,
you up your pace a bit.
- [Rosa] Oh, my God, Sandra!
- Rosa!
[Aido] Come and give us a hand here, love.
- Grab a hold.
- Okay. Oh.
[Sandra] Everyone, this is Rosa--
We don't have time for introductions.
Let's get this up first.
- Come towards me now.
- [Dariusz] Very good.
[Aido] We're trying to get it
six inches in front of the foot.
Okay, everybody happy?
- [Sandra] Yeah.
- [Aido] One, two, three.
["Titanium" continues playing]
[Aido] Keep going.
- [Sandra] Are we good?
- [Aido] Good.
[Aido] That's us,
let go of the ropes. We're all done.
- [Dariusz] All good here.
- [Aido] One up, four to go.
Okay, well done, everyone.
How do you do, Rosa?
I'm Aido.
Thanks for joining our team.
- How does that feel?
- [Sandra] Deadly.
- [all laughing]
- Phew!
Raise your voice...
[Sandra] Yeah, a little bit to the right.
Yes. Go down.
I'm talking loud not saying much...
Yeah, much easier, so get 'em made.
[Amy] Come on, you two.
[Sandra] Come on, Amy, you legend.
I'm bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away...
[Nathan] Sorry. Sorry.
Before nine on a Saturday, again?
[Peggy] Oh, now, do I complain
about your little one
waking three times in the night?
Honestly, the earlier they start,
the sooner it'll be finished.
Is this gonna be every weekend?
[Peggy] Earplugs, Nathan.
Works for me.

- [Aido] Oh, here's herself.
- [Molly] Hi, Mom.
Uh, how are you?
It's just a little something
to say thanks for today.
Oh, Sandra, you're so sweet,
but you didn't have to.
- Here you go.
- No fucking complaints here!
Hey, hey, hey, Tomo.
This don't even touch the sides!
[Aido] Doctor, can I have one?
Oh, one won't kill you.
[Amy] Oh, it'll cure ya.
I might even have one myself,
for the day that's in it.
[all cheering]
- Dad?
- Right, you go easy, Francis.
- Slinte.
- [all] Slinte. Slinte.
[Rosa] Sandra, you're not having one?
Now, it's a bag of cans, boss,
it's not a bag of cants!
Nah, have to get this little one home.
It's been a long day,
hasn't it, sweetheart?
- [Rosa] Aw.
- Come here, sweetie.
- Oh, it's mad, isn't it?
- [Amy] I know.
There was nothing here a few weeks ago.
[Amy] Yeah, absolute madness.
All right.
I'll leave yous to it.
- I'll see you next week.
- Bye, dear.
- All right, love.
- [Tomo] All the best.
Thanks for the beers.
- Thanks, I'll see you tomorrow.
- [all] Bye, Molly.
- [Amy] See you, missus. Bye.
- [Rosa] Bye, Molly.
Bet you're knackered after that.
We'll get all cozy
- back in the hotel.
- Yeah.
I'll make you some popcorn and stuff.
Hard day's work.
[Lazlo] Miss Kelly, come on.
Oh, Lazlo, you're gonna make me carry her
all the way up the stairs?
[Lazlo] Ms. Kelly.
Come on. It's just this once.
They have cameras everywhere.
- I get in trouble too.
- She's so gorgeous.
- Come on. Come over here.
- [woman giggles]
I wonder if they have cameras on your face
following her arse.
[Molly] Third floor.
- [sighs]
- [elevator bell dings]
[Gary] I hope you're gonna pay for that.
[indistinct chatter]

[breathing heavily]
[keys jangling]
[car engine starts]
[tires screeching]
Late three times,
and you got your kids here.
I won't have it, Sandra.
It's a pub, not a fucking nursery.
[Sandra] It's the holidays.
They're being good.
- John, please. I need this job.
- Yeah?
Well, make it your priority.
There's people out there
would fucking jump to be in your place.
[drill whirring]
I told you to go to Goodwin's
for the big boxes of screws.
- What, are they wrong ones?
- No, but they're dearer.
You can get big boxes
in Goodwin's for half the price.
You need to think about
your budget, Sandra.
You should've phoned me.
Here, Mam,
I was meant to give you--
Emma, you're not supposed
to be over here. You know that.
Go on.
I thought this was supposed
to be a self-build,
not a call-your-builder-
every-ten-minutes build.
Yeah, I did say Goodwin's to you.
Yeah, well, I couldn't go there, all right?
Fine. We'll just use these then.
- [drill whirring]
- [hammer pounding]
- [Rosa] Bye, Sandra.
- [Yewande] Ciao, Sandra.
Thanks a million, girls.
I'll see yous next week.
[Peggy] Don't stay all night now.
[drill whirring]
[muttering] Fuck.
[Emma] Here, Mam.
I wanted to-- [screams]
[Sandra] Oh, Jesus, love. I'm sorry.
[screaming] Mam, make it stop!
Make it stop!
- Okay. Dr. O'Toole!
- Mam!
- [Sandra] Peggy!
- Mam...
- There. Sorry, love. I'm sorry.
- Mam, make it stop. Ow!
I'm so sorry.
So sorry, love.
[Sandra] Oh, God.
I cut her arm with a screw and...
[Peggy] That is a nasty old cut.
- Nurse Molly?
- [Molly] Yeah?
I have a big brown leather bag
in the cupboard under the stairs.
- Would you bring it for me?
- Okay.
And, Mummy, can I have
a bowl of warm water? Thank you.
We'll get this cleaned up.
Hold your hand right above
your head as high as you can.
There you are. Good girl.
That's a good girl.
See. Ah, here we are.
Here's your sister.
She's got it all worked out.
So, first of all,
we're going to clean it up.
[Sandra] All right. Here.
- Give it here.
- [Emma whimpering]
- Got to get it clean, you see.
- [crying]
There you go. Good girl.
Now, can you see in there,
this little box here?
- Mm.
- These little things are--
Now these are a lot nicer than stitches.
[Emma crying]
- Ow. [groans]
- It's all right, love.
- [Aido] All okay?
- [Francis] What happened?
[Peggy] Here's Aido and Francis.
She'll be all right.
We've coming up to a big decision now.
We're going to have a plaster
hold this together.
Is it going to be Elsa or Anna?
- [tearful] Elsa.
- Elsa. I thought it might be.
[Sandra] Emma, love,
what were you doing there, sweetheart?
- Why were you there?
- Doesn't matter.
Daddy told me to give this to you. [sniffs]
[sobs] Sorry. I just don't
let them see me like this.
[Peggy] Why not?
I miss him, Peggy.
Gary, I mean.
Like, I mean, I don't miss him.
I mean I miss who he was.
It's like it's all the wrong way around.
I wish I could bring it back.
I want to fix it, you know?
I know. I know.
But you know however much you may want to,
there are some people who...
you just can't.
Why don't you stay here tonight?
Have some proper food and a sleep?
I can't.
I can't risk Gary finding out
about this. I can't.
Sandra, darling, we're gonna
have to draw a line here.
I cannot have the kids running around--
I know. I know.
What if the inspector was to drop--
All right, Aido. I know.
Listen, I can't be here for
the next couple of weekends.
Leave everything till I get back.
It can wait.
[thunder rumbling]
Emma, come here, sweet.
Now, this is just like
the safety box, all right?
What do you say?
- I hurt it playing in the hotel.
- All right.
It's just a white lie, yeah?
White lies don't count, do they?
- Love you.
- Love you.
[Sandra] Will you go in and see your dad?
Oh, Molly.
This is bullshit.
Kidney infection?
For the last month?
Like, are you grooming her or something?
No. Obviously not.
You're obviously not looking
after them, are you?
Keep her, but I know when
you're lying to me, Sandra.
I always know.
[sobs, groans]
[suspenseful music playing]
- [rain lashing]
- [Sandra grunting]

Will you come down!
Will you come down!
[birds chirping]
[drills whirring]
[Francis] All right. Look, Dad.
[Aido] For goodness' sake,
they're doing well.
Hiya. While you were on your holiday,
the grafter's been grafting.
[Aido] Do you want a medal?
Don't worry, Aido.
We've got this covered.
I hope you have it
all covered, not just that side.
- [Francis] Yeah.
- [Aido] Well done.
["Green Garden" by Laura Mvula playing]
[Aido] Ninety sheets of this to bring down,
right down to the bottom of the house.
- Then we...
- Then we'll set them all up.
- Okay.
- And then...
[Molly] That's a bit like--
Oh! Woodlouse. Nice.
[singer] But it's okay now
Bathe in the sunlight
Oopsie. Mummy, they've--
Mummy, they've eaten the wood.
[Emma] See?
That's what they do.
- That's why it's all bitten.
- [Molly] Oh.
[Emma] Wait. No.
There's screws in this one.
[Emma] We don't need that one.
[music continues playing]
[Aido] Good job, but we have
to go and get all the rest.
On the wings of a butterfly
I'm on it.
- [Emma yelps]
- Woo-hoo! Your house.
We can put our dolls in here to play.
- What are you doing?
- Pulling you out.
- Molly!
- That's your spot.
[Yewande] Be careful with that, Tomo, huh?
[Tomo] Wanna see me go the other way?
Ah, look. [singing]
[Aido] Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.
Tomo, put that down!
For Pete's sake.
I have to give two lectures all the time.
One for everybody else
then another one for you.
You hurt anybody with that,
if it cuts somebody's hand off,
I'd have no trouble asking you to leave.
- Dariusz, take this, will you?
- [Dariusz] Yeah.
Idiot. It's not a playground.
How many times do I have to tell you?
Didn't know you could get
sacked from volunteer work.

I'm glad you like it.
- Is this for me?
- Yeah.
There were some leftovers of the wood, so...
Oh, thanks, Peggy.
This looks gorgeous.
- [all] Yeah.
- Yewande did most of it.
Oh, no, Peggy.
Come on. We did it together.
Gorgeous, Yewande.
Yes. It's a Cameroonian specialty.
Aido, I'm telling you,
you don't know what you're missing, man.
Oh, come on. It's kondre.
It's just-- basically it's
a stew with some plantain
thrown into it.
- [Molly] Plantain?
- Yeah. With a bit of goat.
[Tomo retches]
- Come on, Tomo!
- It's in my mouth now.
You were enjoying it a minute ago.
I mean, you can't ..Goat?
Honest, goat?
It's just the same as lamb,
for heaven's sake.
Have you never eaten goat before?
- No.
- But you were enjoying it.
That's different.
They-- they're...
It's only the idea of it.
[Sandra] If it was a takeaway...
Yeah, but then I don't know.
But you're mad about kebab.
Why would you not eat this?
Yeah, but that's Labrador.
That's different.
You were enjoying it,
so what's changed?
[Emma] Labrador? Like a dog?
[Yewande] Have some more, Tomo.
Yes. Let's give him some more.
Come on.
No. Don't. No. Look--
All right. I'm all right.
It's better than the crap
you eat in the squats.
If you don't know what you're eating,
you don't know what you're eating.
- I've been told now.
- Well, you do know
- what you're eating.
- But it's in my mind now.
[Amy] You want some salad?
- Yeah. Salad?
- Yes. Help yourselves to salad.
[Molly] It's okay.
Have you got some salad
down there, Molly and Emma?
[Molly and Emma] Nope.
No. We don't want any salad here.
No. We're all right, thanks, for salad.
[Molly] It's so far away.
Ms. Kelly, I had to sign for this for you.
Breach of access?
That prick is lucky to
see those kids at all,
and now he's taking me to court!
Breach of access is an offence.
You have to attend.
You have to tell your side of the story.
[Sandra] Oh, great.
Well, sure.
I got me A4 pad and
we'll get started, will we?
Fuck's sake!
If you fight this with that
kind of attitude, he'll win.
I've seen it, Sandra.
I've seen men get barring orders
back against the women they've hit.
I'm telling you,
we can either calmly put forward
your side of the story,
or you can go into mediation
ranting and raving
and risk losing custody
of the kids altogether.
How many visits did Molly miss?
I don't know.
Seven? Eight?
Oh, Jesus, Sandra.
She literally wouldn't
get out of the car, Jo.
What was I supposed to do?
You can't let Molly dictate terms.
Is that what you say to a crying child?
I'm sorry, love,
but legally he has a right to do this.
I know it's frustrating.
Any more news on the house front?
[Aido] This needs to go up
against this board.
- Yeah. Got it?
- [Dariusz] I got it.
Ah, here's herself. Hello.
I want one of them Banham
looks for the front door.
Do you know those ones,
like, they flick open
really easy on the inside
but then they're real secure?
[Aido] I know what they are.
It's just you're on a budget.
Well, I want one.
[Aido] Well, you can't afford one.
Aido, you ask me for a
million decisions a day,
and then I finally give
you a freebie and it's--
and it's fucking "Why why why,"
or it's too much.
Fuck's sake!
Can you stop looking at me?
Don't look at me!
Just get back on with it, will you?
The house is never gonna get done.
[Rosa] Sandra.
[Sandra] Oh, will you stop
bleeding staring at us?
[Rosa] Sandra. Sandra.
What is going on?
What the fuck is the point?
- Jesus Christ.
- [Rosa] What?
I'm sorry. I'm fucking sorry.
What is the point of a house...
if I have no kids to put in it?
we should go.
[exhales deeply]
- Maybe I should ring the girls--
- The girls are fine.
I spoke to Rosa,
they're happy out. You relax.
I have a present for you.
From Amy.
Hope it's only tobacco.
There's Jo.
Was there a reason you didn't leave sooner?
I did try to.
I wanted to, loads of times.
I made a safety box.
I just didn't have anywhere to go.
Mr. Mullen, you claim that
Molly hasn't attended access
- on eight occasions?
- Yes, Judge.
You've been keeping up maintenance?
Yes, Judge.
Okay. Ms. Breen.
Thank you, Judge.
Ms. Kelly, last time we spoke,
you described suffering
psychological and physical abuse
throughout your relationship.
- Is that correct?
- Yes.
And when I specifically
asked you whether Mr. Mullen
had ever harmed your children,
you said no.
Is that correct?
[Ms. Breen] Do you believe
he has harmed them
on access visits?
[Ms. Breen] Your Honour, we have
new evidence to bring to court.
Articles 1, A to C are photos
of Mr. Mullen's eldest child, Emma.
On Sunday, August 7th,
Emma was dropped at her
father's place of residence
with a bandage on her left arm,
as you can see.
When questioned about this,
Emma said she hurt it
"making something in the garden with Mammy."
This did not match
what Mr. Mullen was told by Ms. Kelly,
who claimed it happened in the hotel,
where they temporarily reside.
We have evidence that suggests
that Emma was indeed
"making something in the garden"
of a Dr. Margaret O'Toole,
who is in fact allowing
Ms. Kelly to build a house
- at her property.
- Judge, I--
- Judge, I can explain--
- Please wait, Ms. Kelly.
Ms. Breen, what relevance
does that have to this hearing?
The matter is for another courtroom.
[Ms. Breen] Judge, if this hearing is about
the character of these parents,
and which one is a more suitable guardian
to the children,
it's certainly worth noting
that Ms. Kelly did not inform
Dublin City Council about this build,
or her change of circumstances.
No. Dr. O'Toole got planning.
Uh, it was her property.
[Ms. Breen] And Ms. Kelly lied
on an assessment form.
When asked in June of this year
if you'd received a loan
or had other housing options,
you wrote "N/A,"
"not applicable," did you not?
I didn't lie.
[Ms. Breen] Well, it's on that form, Sandra.
Are you trying to get two
houses instead of one?
No. No.
Judge, is this a fit mother?
No. You're not doing this!
You are not doing--
you are not taking my kids!
[Judge McBride] All right, all right.
Twenty minutes' break while
I go over this new evidence
and your client calms herself.
[Grainne] They might take the girls
because she fudged some bloody form?
[Jo] Yes. Yes, they might.
Because when it comes
to legally binding forms,
you have to tell the truth.
Truth in the right tone
of voice, though, isn't it?
Tell the truth?
Don't tempt me.
I'll be here all fucking week.
[breathing heavily]
Come here to me.
Of course you were gonna
stay on the housing list.
Anything could've happened.
Yeah, but look what I've done.
[Peggy] Sandra, you're building
a home for your children.
You're working day and night
to give them
a childhood that they've been denied,
and then every weekend,
you have to drop them
home to that fucker!
Do they have any idea what that takes?
I can't. I can't lose them.
- No.
- I can't lose...
And you won't, you won't.
Come on.
You won't.
I know you didn't stop Molly
going to see her father.
She didn't want to,
and you listened to her.
I'm so impressed by you, Sandra.
You know, most of us
get so sunk in our own pain,
we don't notice our children's,
but you did.
And that makes you a good mother
and they've got to see that.
You know, Jo's right.
You go out there
and you tell them the truth.
All right?
One more thing.
Come here.
[Sandra sniffles]
There's Sandra.
[Judge McBride] Mr. Mullen,
has Emma recovered
from her injury, in your opinion?
Yes, Judge,
but I don't want my kids
in an unsafe environment.
- Unsafe?
- Ms. Kelly.
Gary, that was a scrape.
How many times
has Emma done that coming off
her scooter?
[Judge McBride] Okay.
Let's just for a moment
look at the facts here.
The report says Molly
has missed eight access visits.
Mr. Mullen hasn't missed one.
He's paid child maintenance.
He's done everything
that was legally required.
[Sandra] Because that's what he does,
he does what's required but that's not--
Fact, Ms. Kelly.
Whereas you have not.
Why is that?
Ask better questions.
I beg your pardon?
Ask him why he's using
the children as pawns
in front of us all,
while we're all wondering why
I didn't fill in a form right?
You wanna know why I didn't let Molly go?
Because she was hiding in the wardrobe,
pissin' on herself
because she was so scared of seeing you.
She saw, Gary.
She saw you that day.
She watched you punch
my face and pull my hair
and wreck my hand.
And you didn't see her, but she saw.
And I can't make her unsee that.
But Christ, I'm her mother and I'll listen.
I'd do it again.
I would.
I'd do it a million times over.
And making out that I'm a bad person?
That I'm a bad mother?
When you all know what he did to me?
You all know from the Garda reports
and the medical reports
and yet you still bring me in here
and you put me through this,
sit me in the same room with him,
ask me questions like,
"Why didn't you leave him?"
But you never ask,
"Why didn't he stop?"
Ms. Kelly, take a seat.
This type of injury could have
come from a playground,
a tumble in the street.
But it didn't, Ms. Kelly.
It happened in your care.
Albeit while you were in the
process of building a house,
to secure your children's future.
I understand Molly has witnessed
something she shouldn't
but I cannot condone parental alienation.
I order that the children be
assessed in the coming months
to establish their needs,
what they truly want.
But for now, the terms of access remain.
Mr. Mullen,
you will not get custody today.
[Judge McBride] However, Ms. Kelly,
if you want to build yourself a house,
you must take full responsibility for that.
You must inform Dublin City Council
that you wish to be taken off
the housing list.
Your right to rent allowance will cease
when you and the children
move into this new house.
- Understood?
- Yes, Judge.
Very well.
[clerk] The court is adjourned.
All rise.
[indistinct chatter]
I'm keeping my kids.

I'm so happy for you.
[both sigh, chuckle]
[Sandra sighs]
[Sandra] Guess what, girls?

[Sandra] Oh, my God.

["Dreams" by The Cranberries playing]
Oh, my life
Is changing every day
In every possible way
[indistinct chatter]
Though my dreams...
- [Sandra] We did it.
- [cheering]
And I just want to jump in
and say, like, thanks to Amy,
'cause nobody trust me
with a hat and sander...
She'd be able to tell you that.
And I just want to say thanks,
- you gave me hope.
- [Aido] Good man.
- [Tomo] That's it.
- Thanks, Tomo.
- I'd just like to say...
- [Sandra] Mm-hmm.
...I haven't done anything for a long time
apart from, uh, odd jobs
but what we achieved here
has made me very, very proud.
And it puts me in mind of
the old Irish term meitheal.
- Huh? Meth-head?
- Meitheal.
Francis, you explain to the young ones
what meitheal means
while I teach this idiot some manners.
Meitheal means when people come together
to help each other.
And by doing that,
they are helped in return.
So, thank you all very much for your help.
- Cheers.
- Slinte.
- Slinte.
- Slinte.
[upbeat music playing]
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Go on, Francis.
- Go for it.

[cheers and applause]
- Well done, Dad.
- [Aido] Thanks, son.
- Sandra, give us a song.
- [Aido] Yeah. Go on.
- [Tomo] Yeah, go on, Sandra.
- Well, just one song.
- Go on, sing.
- I heard you singing.
When you were tiling,
you were singing away.
- [Tomo] Oh, go on, Sandra.
- [Amy] Please.
All right, all right. Um...
Oh, if you'll be the lass
Of Aughrim
As I take it
You mean to be
Tell me the first token
That passed between you and me
Oh, don't you
Remember that night
On your green hill
When we first met together?
I'm sorry now to tell
Oh, the rain that falls
On my heavy locks
And the dew, it wets my skin
My babe lies cold with...
[door opens]
Black Widow, Mam.
[Sandra panting]
[fire crackling]
[Sandra] No, no. Peggy!
Peggy! [yelling indistinctly]
No, no...
Oh, my God.
He can't have done this to me!
- No! No!
- [Dariusz] No, no, no...
[singer] Oh, if you'll be the lass
Of Aughrim...
I'm calling the fire department.
- Yeah, call them. Call them.
- [Sandra sobbing]
As I'm taking it you mean to be
- Peggy.
- Come here.
[Peggy] Come on. Come inside.
- [wood splintering]
- [glass smashing]
That passed between you and me
Oh, don't you
Remember that night
On your green hill
When we were together?
Which I'm sorry now to tell
Oh, the rain falls
- On my heavy locks
- [Sandra sobbing]
And the dew
It soaks my skin
My babe lies cold
Within my arms
And none will let me in
[Sandra sobbing]
[singer] My babe lies cold
Within my arms
And none will let me in...
He's been arrested, Sandra.
He's in custody.
He'll be going down for a long time.
You're safe.
What he did to you...
there's no excuse.
When he was a child,
he learned well what could be
done within four walls
with no one watching
I knew.
I just didn't want to believe.
I have to stay with my one.
You don't.
He's destroyed himself, not you.
It's over.
You're free.
[door opens, closes]
[seagulls squawking]
[Peggy] Time to get up, Sandra.
I got you a tea.
Have a sip.
Good woman.
Can you stand?
And up you go.
[birds chirping]
[Molly] I was actually thinking,
this time maybe I'll go on the--
- [Emma] Hey, Molly.
- [Molly] Yeah.
[Emma] Do you think we're going to do it?
[Molly] Yeah.
[Sandra exhales sharply]
[Molly] Oh, yeah.
That'd be deadly.
[Emma] Deadly.
Oh! Here, let me just...
Put that in the middle.
- [Molly] Another.
- [Emma] Another.
[Sandra] What's the craic,
you pair of messers?
- Hi, Mam.
- Oh, hi, Mam.
[Sandra] Good work, girls.
[birds chirping]
["Mother by Lyra playing]
My mother said
- Don't listen to them, child
- [Molly] Mam,
so, if you happen to find any screws,
um, you put them in this.
We're saving them up.
For the new house.
Follow your heart to the stars
- You will find your place...
- [chuckles softly]
- Oh, here's one.
- Oh.
I can hear them calling your name
Their voices loud
They're shouting can you hear them now?
I have the love my body's strong enough
To build my own kingdom
I am the one that
You've been dreaming of
Now look what I've become
I'm rising up
To higher ground
I'm rising up
Can't pull me down
I have offered up
Everything I could
So I will raise my cup
And I drink it down with you
Follow my heart to the stars
I will find my place
Out of the dark I can hear
Them calling my name
Their voices loud
They're shouting I can hear them now
I have the love
My body's strong enough
To build my own kingdom
I am the one that you've been dreaming of
Now look what I've become
I'm rising up
To higher ground
I'm rising up
Can't pull me down
In the darkest hour
I can feel the rain
Then I hear the choir
And I illuminate
I have the love
My body's strong enough
To build my own kingdom
I am the one
That you've been dreaming of
Now look what I've become
I'm rising up
To higher ground
I'm rising up
Can't pull me down
My mother said
I love you, my dear child
I'm rising up
To higher ground
I'm rising up
Can't pull me down
My mother said
I love you, my dear child
["Take it Back" by Cherym playing]
My best friends
Used to tell me I should leave him
And he's nuts
Guess who's sleeping here tonight
When I said yesterday I was okay
After he told me that he missed her
I wanna take it back take it back
I wanna take it back take it back
I wanna take it back take it back
I wanna take it back take it back
Goodbyes and goodbyes
He's so persistent with his nonsense
And though I smile
It was the ugliest I've ever been
I always thought
I'd be the one to change a person
I wanna take it back, take it back
I wanna take it back, take it back
I wanna take it back, take it back
I wanna take it back, take it back
If I heard it all before
Yeah, you still surprise me
And now hate seems a little strong
But he left me hanging
And now you act as if
He's done nothing wrong
When it's hardly my fault
Should I scooch our little messages
Just to show you what a mess he is?
Are you for real?
You're such a weirdo
Are you for real?
